on Old Male Leopard Returns to Londolozi

His eyes are definitely hypnotising!!

It is actually lovely to think of the area he frequents as a retirement village for older animals. How nice to spend your twilight years in such a beautiful place as Londolozi.

Odd how instinctively wild animals sense that it’s time to put away their super prowl attributes and find a simple “retirement” location to live out their days. Hopefully he won’t be pushed out. He’s one bundle of maleness….eyes and all. I wish him well. It’s also good to see you back on the blog, James!

You are right, James. Those eyes are mesmerizing! Now if he could just help me figure out what that bird was from yesterday’s blog!!! ?

How old do you estimate he is?

He was born in 2005

Good old Kashane, I’ve been following him for several years when he spent his time mostly in the Western sector. Then I saw him in Sabi Sabi in the south last November, looked quite old… Then he showed up again in the West earlier this year.
No wonder his name means ‘Far’ in Shangaan 🙂
I hope he still has some time to wander around, but I guess without a territory, his options are extremely limited.

Keeping to himself. Smart way to stay alive longer. Beautiful cat

Still an impressive-looking animal! I hope he continues to be safe in his new territory.

What a beautiful specimen of male leopardness- not legally a word but I like it to describe him. Those eyes, the kinky tail, his size, and ability to maintain life as a solo dude with no territory to call his own. It’s nice to think he has found a retirement home, although your mention of the Inyathini male could shift his wandering space.
I enjoyed his story and look forward to more. And, about that little bird……..???

He’s such a beautiful Leopard and very stunning eyes!! I hope he will be able to live the rest of his life out in peace on Londolozi.

He is an amazing leopard

He does have mesmerizing eyes! He is now in his 14th year so he has had a good run for a male leopard.. I hope he finds a way to be at relative peace for the remainder of his time. Thank you for sharing him with all of us.
