Great pictures James. I have never seen a hyena cub that small. A wonderful sighting.

Amazing photos, if I had to select some (non-leopard*) photos the hyena and new-born cub and the owl photos would make it onto my wall. I couldn’t pick a winner between those two shots.
* It’s just that you have so many excellent photos of leopards

Incredible experiences and photos, James!

This was brilliant. Makes me want to return to Sabi Sand and I was just there in February. I’ve seen leopards but only teens or adults. I’m longing to see little ones vguess it’s in the timing. Any hints on a good time for cub sightings?

James, Awesome post – love the images of those cubs. So many great sightings. Sure hope the Nkoveni cubs make it – we loved see them in action when were at Londolozi recently!

Absolutely fantastic shots, James! I’m at a loss to choose a favorite, although leopard cubs are always at or near the top – thanks!

What a beautiful array of animals. Just brilliant. Thank you so much for sharing.

Ivan Glaser

Great pics as usual….but a bit of a typo in the comment under the elephant picture…..”Winter time along the Sand River never fails to disappoint” ….I dont think that is what you meant 🙂

James Tyrrell

Haha thanks Ivan. Definitely not what was meant! Changed as of this minute! Thanks for that.

Beautiful photos James. There are so many favorites. Enough for two blogs really. Seeing the strength of a leopard cub hoisting a kill up a tree is impressive-great capture
