Wonderful memories James. I think we were with you on drive when we saw Nanga and the two cubs. It was one of our best leopard sightings as we have never seen such small leopard cubs. They came down from the tree and suckled and played with their mother. It is as always lovely to see a photo of Camp Pan.

Fun looking at bygone times. How far back do your digital archives go?

James I am a sucker for this memory Lane feature. No photos of Young or old Tailless Tsalala though that were part of this era ?

Hi Mike,
I think there were one or two but not particularly good. I probably either didn’t take many or wasn’t in that many sightings with them. I’ll try include some next month.

Doesn’t matter whether 2013 or 2014, the collection of images is wonderful. The Nanga cub is adorable, Tamboti female looking beautiful as ever, even with a blood-stained mouth and it was great to see a younger version of the Camp Pan male. Thanks for sharing your memories!!

Happy memories, James! I remember Tamboti’s two little cubs, so tiny and so curious. Happy to hear that Nanga is pregnant again!

The news from Londolozi is an important start to my day. It is always marvelous to see all the goings on in the bush and it allows me to forget and ignore for a while the politics of the moment. Thank you all. Victoria

We followed the wounded cheetah over several days and note her improved gait by the end of our 2013 visit.
