Who is the Nyamakunze male what other names is he called by other lodges?

Amy Attenborough
Media Team

Blair, the Nyamakunze male is the male leopard we have been referring to as the short-tailed male for the last few months. There have been a number of short tailed leopards on Londolozi in the past and since he has established his territory around Nyamakunze Pan he has been given this name.

Also who is this new coalition of male lions?

Amy Attenborough

Hi Blair. They are two males who entered Londolozi from the east a few days ago along with a lioness. At this stage, we have been unable to get an ID on them but believe that they have come in from the Kruger due to their slightly more skittish nature around vehicles and from the lack of information on them from other lodges in the Sabi Sands. If we do manage to find any more information on them we will be sure to let you know.

Nkorho had 2 males and a female about a month ago and one of the males had a smudge on his nose, same lions?

I’m not sure Blair. Thanks for the heads up though. We’ll check it out!

Hi Blair, yes quite possibly the same lions; the one male has a rounded scar on the bridge of his nose.

Great selection of photos,but who is the Nyamakunze male?I haven’t heard of him before.

Hi Alex. The Nyamakunze male is the male leopard we have been referring to as the short-tailed male for the last few months. There have been a number of short tailed leopards on Londolozi in the past and since he has established his territory around Nyamakunze Pan he has been given this name to avoid confusion.

The Week in Pictures is always a great place to start the weekend. The female ostrich is in all her glory! Nice to see the Piva male in action with his kill. I also enjoyed the sisterly lion affection and the klipspringer silhouette.

What’s the estimated age of the two males with the unknown female? Could they be the Matimba males?

Amy Attenborough
Media Team

Hi Bader. Thanks for the interest. It is hard to say for sure but they are around five years of age and aren’t the Matimba males.
