Thank you James, great to see the Piccadilly female and cub again. Has anyone seen Nhlanguleni’s cub recently?

Marvelous video this week. I love watching the gait of lions. And the Piccadilly female with her cub interactions; from shove to the head, playful and gentle touch within that incredibly rich colored landscape…truly special.

I’m so happy that even though guests have returned, you’re keeping up with the weekly video. As a daily follower it’s been a welcome addition to your blog site. Nice footage of the Piccadilly female and her cub as well as the lioness retreating from the Buffalo herd.

What a spectacular week of videos James! I’m not sure if I’ve imagined this, but was the Piccadilly female not seen mating this week? In which case what has happened to her cub ? Hope it was a dream and that alls well with them both !!🙏🏻💕

Beautiful video! How many female leopards have cubs at the time?

I just love those Londolozi leopards……the sweet interactions and behaviors! Not to mention their extraordinary beauty…..over a year ago, we saw Xidulu on Arathusa with her youngster, Cara, at age 7 months, and Cara was also trying to suckle repeatedly. Xidulu did exactly the same thing….pushing her away repeatedly and even snarling at one p0int! Cara finally moved away a bit to drink at a small dam….I think these young cubs will try to suckle longer than 4/5 months, if they can! Why not?

James could you make up a map with all current leopard territories both male and female? Would be great. I enjoyed this video.

Hi there, yes, we will be putting one out shortly…
