It was indeed a wonderful day Josh. We are not rugby supporters, but we watched the match. It makes us so proud to be South Africans. I was incidentaly wondering just this morning about the Ximungwe female’s cub. It is great to see she is doing well.

A Excellent day I would say !

Good luck with your training program. Great sightings.
We also got up @ 4:30 AM to cheer the Boks!

Josh welcome to the Londolozi world. Congratulations and I look forward to meeting you on my next trip. You’ve got great teachers who create amazing experiences

That must have been fabulous to see. Just goes to show you never know what will turn. Also congratulations 🎉🍾🎊 to South Africa on their win!!! Victoria

Congratulations! You passed one of your hurdles to becoming a full-fledged ranger by penning a wonderful blog. I can’t begin to imagine the elation you felt in experiencing fantastic leopard sightings and then feel the pride and joy for South Africa’s rugby team. BTW, are you related to Amy?

Thank you very much Denise. It was an amazing day! Yes, she is my sister.

Well it is obvious that great safari genes run in your family.

Well done Josh … entertaining and enthralling in your descriptions of what you saw AND congratulations to the Springboks!!! Is it our imagination or is the Senegal Bush male a pretty big leopard, almost the size of the Anderson male?

Thank you Bob and Lucie. The Senegal Bush male is definitely a big leopard. Not quite as big as the Anderson male in his prime but certainly an impressive specimen.

Nice blog, Josh! I would love to have shared that day with you and Rob and Judas!

Over the top image of the sparring leopards! Cubs playfulness always brings a smile. You had quite a memorable day and thanks for taking us along via your blog!

Josh, what a great find – 2 leopards squabbling and then mating leopards🤗

Josh, Great post and welcome to the family! Sorry for the Brits, but it was so exciting to see the Bokke win!!

Hello Josh,
We were indeed very lucky to have Rob, Judas and you on this day.
It certainly was our best day of 2019 too, it’s hard to hope for a better outcome after asking to see mainly leopards.
Sorting through this day’s pictures won’t be over anytime soon.
Thank you for confirming that the (at the time) unidentified individual mating with Island Female was the Maxim’s Male.
We hope to be as lucky when (not if) we’ll come back.
Please pass our warmest greetings to Rob and Judas.
Yannick and Nicolas Gautier

Perfectly captured 👌
