OMG….She is so beautiful to me!! Love the pics, but especially the first one where she is looking straight at the camera….she is very calm & relaxed….confident and non-chalant?! 🙂 And he is really cool looking with those blue eyes! So fun to watch him play! Thanks for the update. Have a great day.

Oh he’s so beautiful Simon and your photos are really stunning! It must be such a fantastic experience to be able to spend time with beautiful Nanga and her cub. Thank you so much for the update.

The photos and video made me smile. Thank you Simon! BTW, for fans of the Nanga female, she has a facebook page (if you don’t know already) and there are photos and links from Londolozi and elsewhere. Nanga female is known as Moya north of Londo & the facebook page is under her “northern” name. If you look hard enough there is also some historic photo/video posted from Londolozi of the Nanga female as a cub with her mother, the late Nyeleti female: https://www.facebook.com/Moya.Female.Leopard
I’m not normally a big social media person, but I hope they link Simon’s amazing photos and video.
