This week we spend a magical morning with the wild dogs shortly after having moved to a new den. Thankfully Greg was able to follow the pack as they moved to the new den not too far away, making our lives easier and preventing us from waiting at the old den for hours on end to no avail. The new den is perfect for our viewing pleasure and open to provide the pack the advantage of seeing any danger as it approaches.
Tracking leopards is always fun, but not an easy affair. Committing our afternoon to track the Senegal Bush Male he assists us in letting us in calling from not too far from the vehicle while we were sitting with a herd of elephants. We stick with him and are seriously rewarded.
Initially seen as a young male in 2016, this leopard only properly established territory on Londolozi in mid-2019
Lastly, we throw back a few weeks to a sighting of the Mhangeni Pride and their cubs. The road ahead for the pride and the cubs will not be easy. Avoiding any conflict with the young nomadic coalitions that are currently being seen on the reserve will be tiring and hard work but vital to keep the young ones alive.
