Thanks for the update James. Was the 2017 litter killed as well? Lets hope that she is succesful raising this litter.

What great news. Hope that this little litter makes it safely through all the challenges of the wild!

Another piece of the constantly shifting leopard dynamics that needs to be put in place. I hope you find the cubs soon, but I also hope that they stay safe for the next year until they’re more independent.

Here’s to hoping to see some Nkoveni leopard cubs next month! Was reading some of The Tracker Manual which I bought as a Christmas present last year for someone I will be traveling with and couldn’t help but notice a number of the photographs were credited to a name I’ve become familiar with reading this daily blog ; ). Also noticed one of the authors was a Renias Mhlongo. I have read several books about Londolozi: Full Circle, Cathedral of the Wild, Leopards of Londolozi and often an Elmon Mhlongo is referenced. Was wondering if Renias is a relation. Enjoy reading your blog entries daily and can’t wait to be at Varty Camp now less than 6 weeks away

Hi Phil,
Good observation. Yes Renias is Elmon’s younger brother. Their other brother Phineas was also an incredible tracker at Londolozi. Elmon tends to be better known due to his involvement with John Varty and many of the Londolozi productions.
Thanks for the comments, looking forward to having you here.
Best Regards
