We were in Londolozi in September, and I have been anxiously awaiting photos showing how Londolozi greens up after the rains. The first pic in this blog shows this. Thank you!

Rob, your writing is great. All the details had me right there on foot with you. Thanks.

Hi Rob. Don’t think coffee drew the leopards to you somehow! The alarm calls did it and they drew you to them. They are not in the least interested in our lives – especially when they are highly occupied with each other – but wow! are we interested in them? Oh yes! Lovely story. LOVE the picture of the Sand River! Will put it on as a Screensaver. Wendy M

Please can anyone tell me the “point” of earning all these points?? Does the “winner” get a chocolate bar or something? Or does it just go on and on? Just curious ……Wendy M

Hello Rob!
What an adventure for you and your guests!
Wonderful news that Mashaba is pregnant! When me and my husband visit Londolozi last year in September we saw Mashaba at one of her dens with her cubs! It was a fantastic sight but it was very sad to read at the blog that the cubs had been killed!
So I’m very happy that she will have cubs again! Hope they will have a long and good leopard life!
Very good photos! I specially liked the first one with the sunset and the river! Magical!
Thank you for sharing!

That is so incredible, especially to have witnessed that on foot!! I’ve actually had three of my four leopard sightings foot. funnily enough, the first one from far enough in the iMfolozi in 2015, then the second about 7 metres on the path ahead of me in Harold Porter Gardens in Betty’s Bay in 2017 and then a month later behind our showers in Mabuasehube in the Kgalagadi.
