Oh he is beautiful. It is amazing how well the young leopards look. Probably because they do not get into fights yet.

Let us hope he survives to maturity

He is beautiful! Hope he does well there!

Great sighting-hope he continues to thrive😃

How exciting to see a new face in the crowd. Londolozi is a popular place to live and hunt. The word must be getting out among the cats.

If you guys are worried about this little dude, send him to me – I’ll look after him until he’s big enough.

Fingers crossed he’s a smart young leopard, determines there is no room in Londolozi’s territory and moves on to a safer space.

Interesting to hear the Ndzanzeni male has been mating with the Mashaba female- perhaps she’s developed a “taste for a younger mating companion “! 🐆😘📷📷

How wonderful to have a new young leopard in Londolozi, but hope he moves back in order to hunt and eliminate an altercation with any full grown male. Good luck and keep us posted! He’s a beauty!

So remarkable that you have such extensive knowledge of individual animals.

Will the new kid on the block simply be called Misava or Misava 2:3 or 3:3 or do you wait to see if he establishes himself before making him a regular?

Hello James!
He is beautiful! A curious and tough one! He is checking out chance of business opportunity… I hope he will be successful in time!

We are wondering how it works with info-sharing from others in your region? Is there a lot of back and forth communication with the other lodges?

Hi Michael and Terri,
Yes there is a lot of info shared between lodges on animal movement.
We’re not in radio comms with everyone but a lot of us know other rangers from other lodges so are in Watsapp contact…

That is unusual. It will be interesting to see if he decides to try and say, or move on to a less populated area.
