Fantastic to see the Makomsava cubs. Watched the Instagram story this morning. Amazing. Great pics this week. Spring is definitely here. Love the knobthorn and Impala lily. Great sunrise pic.

OMG!!! All of this TWIP is wonderful as usual, but those last 2 photos of Makomsava and her cub – well done Guy, how glad are you to be back at Londolozi?!

Beautiful! You guys need a leopard card for Makhomsava!

My favourite pictures for this week are the impala Lily (gorgeous, I love the way it stands in dry grass very visible to pollinators! ( and of course the Makomsava cubs so irresistible! The elephant trunk and the water creatures are beautifully portrayed especially nyala close to the water, very elegant.

That leopard cub!!! Oh, my, what a fabulous sighting! Great TWIP again!

Sweetest pictures of the new Leopard cub and his Mom!

Lovely TWIP, thanks!

Just a great week in pictures. Love cubs and little ones of all the inhabitants

Wonderful pictures again!
My question: Why is it the case that inexperienced leopard mothers are more successful than older ones? I would have thought that is is the other way round.
And another question: When I was in Londolozi I saw so many leopards; however, I didn’t write their names down, or only some. How can I identify them now? Who ‘s who of the leopard world?

You are right, best picture is the mother leopard giving her cub a face wash! The leopard activity is so active and so fingers crossed all goes well for them. Great to see all the inhabitants of the bush going about their business!! Thank you 😊 Victoria

James, I loved all the photos, Leopard Senegal bush male, and the Leopard licking tiny cub

James – I loved lily?

Kudos for a fantastic week in pictures!! Guy’s images of the newest member of the Londolozi “ leopard cub club” are heartwarming to say the least. The detail shots I also find interesting. In all, terrific variety and I’m looking forward to being inundated by more leopard cubs images.

All of the sightings are wonderful… but mom and cubs by far I’d agree is the most special too💕 Thank you

It certainly has been bumper week for the most amazing leopard sightings. The topping on the cake of course, being the magical shot of the Makomsava female and one of her cubs. Absolutely stunning 😍💕💕🙏

Hi James. Loved the new little Leopard! And the one of it with its Mum too about to have his face licked!! Also loved the pic of him peering nervously over the edge of the rock! What a delight! Wendy M

Incredible photos of the Makomsava female and her cobs! Many other amazing photo captures as well!!

Mama Makomsava and her baby are PRECIOUS!

Don’t think most here will tire of leopard cub news!

James, How exciting to see another set of cubs, and especially with Makomsava! Prayers for their safety!

Great selection of photos guys and look forward to many more of Makhomsava’s cubs! Quick question regarding the Three Rivers Female. I have been looking all over the internet and social media and would like to know if you all know who her father is suspected to be? Thanks a bunch!

Nailed it Guy!

All beautiful photos, I especially love the last one
