on A Lunch Break With Leopards

Wow Jemma, an amazing experience.

What an incredible lunch hour!!!!! I wish I had been there. I love seeing the playful side of these magnificent animals with their adorable cubs. Thanks for sharing. Victoria

All I could think of while reading your blog was what a wonderful memory you were making and what a joy it must have been watching these two play! The Nkoveni has been my favorite since birth and her mother, the adored Mashaba, leads the way in most hearts. Although green with envy, I’m VERY happy for you! Green is a good holiday color, right? Lol….

A little different from watching yellow taxis pass by in NYC at lunch!
I also love watching the interplay between moms of all species and their youngsters, the most unusual of which for us was a rhino “family” sighting.

While in Londolozi we observed many leopards lazing around or walking through the bush. But we did experience three lions dining on a downed kudu. The law of the wild. Amazing times in Londolozi!

Great story and great photos! Thank you Jemma!

Hello Jemma!
What a lunch break! What an adventure! I wish I had that kind of lunchbreaks! Fantastic!
Thank you for sharing your wounderful pictures!

Lovely blog and photos, Jemma. I was also lucky enough to spend some time watching these 2 playing in October, and felt deeply privileged.

It’s the best kind of break when you can sit back and watch the interaction between mom and cub. Spotting a leopard is exciting in itself but to have experienced all of that within a lunch hour is extraordinary, to say the least. You can’t plan for what you want to see, just go with what nature gifts you.

The most magical way I could think of spending a lunch break!
