After a heat wave of temperatures reaching the high thirties, it has been a chilly last few days with strong winds and far cooler temperatures. This made game viewing difficult as fresh tracks were blown over by the dust and many animals retreated to the thickets to lie low. Despite it being windy and cool conditions, it meant the ranging and tracking team needed to work that much harder to find what we were looking for. Highlights this last week were that of the Ntsevu pride feeding on a giraffe calf, multiple leopards on hoisted kills and a few good cheetah sightings, which is always very special as these elusive cats are few and far between. Enjoy the following images showcasing this last week.

The Mashaba female is currently Londolozi’s best-known leopard. Her relaxed nature means she is comfortable around the vehicles.
The Hosana Male arrived in mid-2018 and is now dominant over Othawa, rarely seen on Londolozi's western boundary.
This female is a success story all in herself, being born as a single cub to the Riverbank 3:3 female in early 2012.
