Loved watching the cub scampering down the tree!
The Inyathini Male, although has been seldomly seen, has been lurking along the Sand River, deep within the Nweti Males Territory. Although no longer a dominant territorial male, the Inyathini Male is still in fantastic condition for a nearly 13-year-old male. Having been through a lot in his time he is showing signs of ageing slightly but has done well to avoid any further life-threatening confrontations with the other predators.
We then have a great sighting of the Three Rivers Female and her cub, where they have caught and hoisted a young impala into a large tamboti tree. After the adventurous cub disappears for a while the mother sets off to search for it, hoping that it has not ventured too far and bumped into any other predator possibly being drawn in by the smell of the carcass being carried by the wind.
Eventually having found the cub, we sit in hope for both the mother and cub to use a perfect platform of a fallen tree leaning against the tree in which the carcass is hoisted in to ascend the tree it giving us an incredible view of them.
While up in the tree we are visited by a herd of elephants that move through the area causing the two leopards to dash down out of the tree.

It was very entertaining to see the cub come scampering down the tree to hide from the elephants.
