Of all the photos I have loved from Londolozi my favorite right now is the one of the mother leopard with her young cub snuggled up next to her. I remember one of the special rewards of motherhood was you child snuggled in your arms, a happy warm moment. Happy Mother’s Day to all the great mothers at Londolozi. Victoria

What a sweet, lovely blog, Amanda. My Mom turned 97 this week and your blog brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.

The role of mothers across species is incredibly similar and complex!

Beautifully expressed Amanda, from the photos, the prose describing a Mother’s role and especially the video. Wiping a tear away, I reflected on all the mothers that have touched my life , especially mine who is almost 93.

Thank you for remembering all the moms, both two legged and four legged!!
