It is lovely to be able to look back and see how much an animal has grown and that he survived the first year. Great memories.

Jaw dropping surprise to see the same leopard as a cub and now one year later on the same exact day…..incredible! And….with the same guest!! I’m happy for you and Sergey. Those odds must be like winning the lottery. Yes, I can see the facial similarity clearly. You took some wonderful pictures also. I love seeing the Tatowa young male in the tree along with him on the rocks bathed in that lovely light. Not sure anyone at Londolozi will be as lucky as you with the same guest, same leopard, and same date one year later. Bragging rights for sure! Lol….

Wonderful, I have seen elephants (with calves) very , very alarmed by the presence of a leopard , so much so that the leopard had to escape through the tree canopy . These big bulls clearly were very unfazed . A wonderful sighting and some cracking photos

OMG! How incredible this encounter must have been for the two of you. I was thrilled just reading about sighting the young Tatowa male exactly one year after your first viewing of him with his mother. Your photos are perfect and his identifiable markings are quite apparent. Some of us are fortunate enough to observe one leopard a couple of times in one trip, but your good fortune surpasses all that. The leopard god was smiling on you!!
