It is always lovely and exciting to see an African wild cat. Even more so yen you see a family. One of my favourite cats to see, maybe it is that they are so similar to our domestic cats.

I just love cats in all shapes and sizes and was fortunate enough to see an African Wild Cat when I visited South Africa in 2004. I was even able to make a picture, although it wasn’t a very good one. Still treasure it though. I hope to see it again some day. Seeing kittens is even better. Thanks for these wonderful pictures. I also hope to see a serval and an caracal one day.

Fortunate to have 2 wild cat sightings last week–unfortunate not to have been able to take a photo!

Alex, I have never been blessed with an African Wildcat sighting, I hope I see one when we return in 2020

Hi Alex. If I had seen those kittens I would have definitely thought they are just little Tabby kittens – the same as we have had during our married life! Lovely pics. Wendy M

That is a seriously good sighting, with fantastic, once in a lifetime photos. I think you have shown lions, leopards, a serval and now wildcats – ah the elusive caracal…

Great shots! This is just as exciting to me as a leopard or lion 🙂 love these Tiny little beings and it’s always been amazing to me that they can survive so well with their larger relatives hunting them.

Ever spot any Caracal or Civet at Londolozi?

Replying to Bob & Lucie: Yes, our group saw a civet last June (in 2018)

Undoubtedly, the most amazing images of these elusive cats. You must have been over the moon!!

They look so like the kittens of a friend. Is it possible they are descended from the same wild cats that were tamed in ancient Egypt!! Victoria

It is extremely difficult to think of lionesses being wusses!! Glad that the buffaloes are back to fighting strength and the lionesses are being cautious!! Victoria

It is great that such small cats live their on Londolosi.

These wildcats/kittens are certainly adorable. They remind me of a friend’s cat, but the wild cats have larger ears.
