Great blog Simon. The Mashaba female was the first leopard we viewed at Londolozi, when she was still the Vomba young female. She will always have a special place in my heart. Beautiful leopard. Awesome video.

Thank you, Simon. We spent some time with Mashaba when she was still with her cub, young Mashaba a few years ago. They are beautiful & seemed to be happy to pose for us.

Great blog, video and pictures Simon and James, thank you for sharing! She really is very beautiful. I hope she has a long, healthy life ahead, as her grandmother did.

Great blog thanks for sharing..This is without a doubt one of my favourite and most photogenic leopards. Here is an interesting sighting from earl 2013 where she evaded the Majingilane coalition – http://blog.londolozi.com/2013/01/mashaba-evades-the-majingilane/

Mashaba is a gorgeous cat. Its always great to see photos of her. I am so much hoping that she will have a successful litter this year! Its easy to associate her with her remarkable mother and grandmother, Vomba and Sunset Bend. Not so easy to remember her Dad was the legendary Camp Pan male! Thanks for the reminder.
