Great experience. I do hope there will be new cubs.

That Flat Rock boy does get around! On my recent visit we saw him several days in a row, kilometers from where he’d been seen just the evening before. Clever leopard females clearly recognize good genetic material.

There is a remarkable difference in the sizes of the male and female leopards in this pics. I suppose this would be the same for any mating pair. Why DO the females almost attack their mates when finishing copulation, James?

Really love the low-level perspective on these pictures. Wish there was a way to get closer to ground level at times!

Given the state of male dynamics on Londolozi, will the Nhlanguleni Female mate with the others as well, or is her territory not in a part of Londolozi that is affected (not sure of where her territory lies)?

Amazing sighting!! Where are the Nhlanguleni Female’s last litter now?
