Beautiful, thank you. I was privileged to spend over an hour on 1 drive last month with these two, and much of that was playing. Alfie considered it one of his best sightings ever, which when you’ve been a ranger as long as he has, is quite saying something.

One never tires of seeing leopards, and especially these playful two. Very nice balance to the other harsh realities of the bush. Very nice, James and also appreciated!

Absolutely delightful pictures, guys! Thank you so much for sending them on to us. We have so often watched small cats at home often playing in the same way with their kittens. We could watch them for hours! Wendy M

Hi James,
Fantastic photos!! I have two questions. How is life going for The Ottawa Male Lion? Still lookig for females and living dangerouly… living on the edge! ?
And the Female Cheetah ho had an injury to her eye in september, how is she doing?

Wonderful images of these two. The little one looks very frisky. I’m looking forward to a similar sighting later this week……

That may have been the same sighting Nick and I were on. It was non-stop action. May have to send in my favourite 5 photos!

The best leopard sightings are the cubs playing with their mothers. Love it.
