Yes, indeed, the trackers at Londolozi are just great – as are the guides, of course.
Good story.

I always admire leopards resilience as they have a tough life especially females… the Senegal bush male is so impressive his look is mesmerising thank you for the update

Lovely story, thank you Barry. We can absolutely attest to the skills and experience of the trackers (and rangers of course ) in ensuring your guests have the absolute best experiences ever. That as well as the breathing life into our souls and the immense friendliness from everyone at Londolozi is why we just keep on coming back : returning home.

I certainly take my hat off to all the trackers ….they have the most amazing 6th sense! 🙏🏻Well done Prof for using that sense to not only locate the leopard but even name the Mashaba female before you even caught sight of her….or had you? There is a certain magic in someone who’s knowledge has been gained through the use of all the senses rather through books alone. Thanks for sharing Barry 💕

Hi Cally, we had not yet caught a glimpse of her. Prof had based his thinking on the size of the track, she has relatively big paws for a female, as well as the territory. An incredible skill!

Reading the tracks and being able to follow them to find all the activity and being able to piece together what had transpired is epic stuff.

I love the excitement that the trackers have- everyday- and the debates! The suspense is exhilarating. Love how this mystery unfolded. Thanks for sharing.

Truly, the trackers are the magicians of the bush-just when we think the object of the search is not to be found, a clue is spotted and voila……could be what we were looking for or something even more exciting.

Very glad both leopards are alive and well. Senegal bush male leopard stealing the Mashaba female’s kill is quite terrible. They have been seen mating in the past, and now he steals her kill.
