Great video this week. I especially enjoyed seeing the cheetah and her cub!

Thank you, Marica. It is always great to see a cheetah, but seeing one with a cub is that much better. I am so glad there was a happy ending.

Hi Sean, good to see the Plague rock female, all though her cub is not with her anymore. Shame it must be dreadful for her to loose her cub. The Cheetah mom and cub was a wonderful surprise. Do you know how old the cub is Sean. So very glad there were no deaths with the Nkoveni female and her two cubs, with the Cheetah mom and her cub, very relieved to the mom and cub found each other again. Oh my favorite the Senegal bush male, so majestic and such a stunning male to watch.

It was great to see the cheetah and her cub, I believe the cub was born around the beginning to middle of August. We were also relieved that there was a happy ending to that sighting of the cheetah and Nkoveni Female.

Lovely view of big cats, anytime I see cheetah my heart flatters. Unluckily this female had just one cub, let’s hope he will grow strong. Leopards are kings of the bush the way they disappear and hide… phantoms of the jungle. Great video as always

I also love seeing cheetahs they are magnificent animals. Leopards are amazingly secretive and that is what is so special about them.

Fantastic big cat video today Sean! I especially enjoyed watching the footage of the mother cheetah searching for her cub, all the while looking out for danger.
Whilst looking at the Plaque Rock female earlier and then ending with the Senegal Bush male, it seems as if he could be her father because of the eye shape. Just a thought.
I’m sure you, your wife and Sebastian enjoyed a wonderful Christmas, celebrating his first! All my best for many more celebrations!!

Thank you, Denise. It was such an awesome sighting of the cheetah. We are not too sure who her father is but it is presumed that it is the Flat Rock Male, but could also be the Senegal Bush Male.
We did have a really special Christmas thank you and we wish you an amazing and blessed 2022.

What a gorgeous video this week, Sean. I just adore Plaque Rock, I see her at home everyday (as a 6month-old cub with her mother Nkoveni on a large canvas from your studio !)

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Suzanne. She is a stunning leopardess, and what an amazing way to remember her by having a large canvas up in you own home.

Thank you Sean & camera operator for the wonderful cat sightings. Especially Senegal Bush.. He looks more like hi father (Mvula) every time I see him. He just turned 12 yrs old this month.

Thank you, MJ, it was actually all just me working many different cameras at the same time. That is interesting that he looks so similar to his father, the genes must be strong.

The interaction with the cheetah and her cub was fantastic. So glad they reunited. And Kunyuma/Senegal Bush Male is looking great and so much more relaxed than in Aug 2019 when we saw him!

Super virtual drive today after Christmas Sean. I must say I was as nervous as the mother cheetah looking for her cub and then trying to get out of dangers way. Very relieved it was a happy ending!
Great to be catching up on the past few days 🙏🏻❤️

It was super nerve-racking but thankfully there was a happy ending.

Thank you, Barbara. There were indeed a few scary moments. Thankfully she managed to find her cub and get out of there safely.
