Guy what a great moment for these two guests. Impressive pictures and a momentous way to end their stay. Pictures are always captivating and these were no different. The Bush is harsh but so is life and death for God’s creatures

What a story! Sad for the poor lamb and exciting for the leopard and your guests. 22 hours flight for 4 days…

That’s quite some journey for 4 days! – but Londolozi is worth it. Guy, has her cub been seen recently?

You lucky guys! Although I would prefer to see the leopard without a dead lamb, it’s life but it makes me sad. It’s snowing here and the lockdown is made more bearable by the charming view. Also thanks to Londolozi spectacular view of the lady leopard in the rain. Just mesmerising

I didn’t know travelers from the USA were permitted into SA at this time. I thought OR Tambo was still closed to us.

Guy, What a grand finale for your guests! The shots in the rain are quite different than what we are used to!

How thrilling for all of you, but especially for your guests to not only see a leopard, but watch her search the bushes and come out with a kill. Although it seems cruel, that is how nature is kept in balance. Congratulations!

Lucky day! I have seen the most amazing things on Safari while on a sprint to the airstrip and a flight! Tends to be the usual luck!

Hi Guy, any sign that she still has her cub that was seen a few weeks ago?

@Michael Fleetwood, unfortunately we don’t think her cub has made it. she has been seen mating with the flat rock male and has been calling in the river. a sign that she may have lost her cub but we have no hard evidence that it is alive or dead.
