Did the Three Rivers female not have a brother? What happened to him? Did the Mawelawela male also come from Kruger?

Hi Marinda,
Yes she had a brother but he disappeared soon after the Xidulu female was killed.
The Mawelawela male came from Singita…

I am always so impressed at how you keep all these gorgeous animals straight as well as keep track of their movements from territory to territory. They are wonderful to see. Victoria

Facinating territorial movements by so many leopards! It will be interesting to see how certain areas end up and with who. Thanks, James.

So great Londolozi has a thriving leopard population. A testament to this great property and your stewardship over the reserve.

James, wonderful history of the leopards! Hope we will get to see them when we come in 2020🤗

James, It’s always great to get these updates! Leopard drama never seems to end and it feels like there are so many leopards to keep track of! What is the total count now?

James Tyrrell

SHo, hard to say, but there are probably at least 20 that we are seeing regularly, excluding cubs… We’re pretty spoiled! 😉

Thanks James. That was a great update. Grant, Jerry and I had a sighting with a new male in the SE in July. I will send you a photo and hopefully you can help ID.

Hi Al, sure thing, send it through and I’ll have a look

James, this is a great addition to your previous update. The leopard population seems to be thriving, so much so that interlopers have crossed into the territory to see if they can carve out their own place, or so it seems with the new names. Good work!

Thanks for the update James, very interesting. Love the video – hello Tortoise Pan, what perfect teeth you have!

Great problem to have: Keeping track of the movement of so many leopards!
Stunning image of the Three Rivers Female.

Thank you for the update on the shifting of leopards. There seems to be an upheaval in most of Sabi Sands. For cubs sake, I hope it calms soon.
