It’s all about the wildlife today. Day three of Nature’s Gifts keeps us rooted in tradition, while many begin to take it easy over the Festive Season, Sean Zeederberg makes sure you get the best seats in safari! Enjoy this Festive Season Virtual Safari…
Having heard that a single lioness had been seen the evening before, we start off in search of the Tsalala Female hoping it was her. The distinctive orange eyes of the Tsalala lineage help in identifying it to be her. Still looking in immaculate condition, I have high hopes for her and if she can avoid any conflict with other lions, she will be perfectly fine.
In the aftermath of a skirmish with the Mashaba Female a couple of weeks ago, we spend some time with the Ndzandzeni Female while she rests in the shade on a particularly warm morning. Leopards are incredibly resilient animals, and although the wound looks bad, she has done very well in keeping it clean and free from infection and will likely heal in the near future.
With the Birmingham Males being absent for the last while, we take every opportunity to see them that we can. Although only one has been seen of late, he has spent a lot of time with the Ntsevu Breakaway Pride. He was by himself on this particular afternoon and only a stone’s throw away from the sub-adults. We decide to stay with him in the hopes that he may call in an attempt to try and find his brother, hoping that he is still alive. In the knowledge that the Ntsevu Breakaway Pride is not far away and upwind, he eventually gets up and follows their scent.
On our way home, we are surprised by a unique and very rarely seen nocturnal animal just to top off the Festive Virtual Safari.

This female is a success story all in herself, being born as a single cub to the Riverbank 3:3 female in early 2012.
While you might not be on a physical safari this Festive Season, we hope that our Virtual Safaris have brought you a little closer to the African bush.
