Yey it’s leopard day! Actually you made my day by showing these pictures. The cubs are fantastic and the flat rock make drinking spectacular. But I love all each of them is a masterwork of beauty and expression. Impressive buffalo, is he the leader? Surely much respected… the colourful birds are always a pleasure to see.

Thank you, Francesca. We are so happy that this post brightened up your day. The Buffalo was one of the larger males but not too sure if he was a leader.

Thank you, Victoria. It can be a challenge to see them so clearly but the viewing this week has proved that wrong. We were very fortunate.

Such beautiful foto’s of the leopards and the cubs. The cubs seems to be enjoying themselves and amusing each other while mom has rest in the tree. I hope the wound on the Picadilly male cub will soon heal so he can carry on with his adventures. My goodness but those are huge horns and a boss on that buffalo, he doesn’t seem to look very old. Gorgeous foto of the Flat rock male drinking water.

So many different leopards, great! I am so glad that the two cubs are still doing fine.
And the bird pictures are just lovely.

Hi Sean and Londolozi team, great selection of photos!
The Nkuwa Female was seen at the beginning of August mating with Hosana by Singita, so hopefully she will be successful in conceiving! Her sister, the Finfoot Female, was seen in July 3km before Paul Kruger Gate in the Kruger National Park along the fence line, which is unfortunate as I was hoping she’d stick around too. I suppose the female dynamics were just too dense and competitive.
Has the Piccadilly Female’s cub relaxed any more since the last few sightings of her? Would be great if that was the case!

Sean Zeederberg

Thanks, Michael. Yes, we are hoping she will be pregnant and hopefully give birth on our side soon. It was such a pity that the Finfoot Female moved further south I think we were all so excited and hoping that she was going to hang around here. I guess there was probably a little too much competition.
The Picadilly Female’s cub has relaxed a little bit but is still fairly nervous. This will probably change as it is exposed more and more to the vehicles, as they are being seen more and more in the north.
Thanks for the updates.

Well Sean, it appears the leopard sightings have been amazing- especially watching Nkoveni’s cubs playing. Terrific photos of them! So has Nkuwa’s sister, Finfoot been spending most of her time in SabiSabi? I read she’s been sighted there. There’s certainly a lot happening and I appreciate the updates.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Hi Denise, yes it was an amazing leopard week.
The Finfoot Female had moved further south and was seen near to the Kruger so it seems that she is searching for a territory down there.

Sean, Simply spectacular once again! The Leopards shots are breathtaking and how great to catch all the birds! Getting the profile of the crocodile with the eye so clear was so lucky!
