Celebrating the arrival of the new year with a Virtual Safari is an amazing way to settle us all into what 2022 has in store for us. We closed out the end of last year eluding to a sighting of the Tsalala Female and a close call. Within this week’s Virtual Safari, we actually get to enjoy two different sightings of the Tsalala Female, the first being a very placid afternoon where she rests in the shade right on the edge of a waterhole near camp. A belly full of wildebeest, she appears to not be able to find a comfortable position to lie in.
We then enjoy an afternoon with the Ximungwe Female and get a true sense of just how big her young male cub is or we should rather refer to him as the Ximungwe Young Male now. Following them as they mill about seeking out the shade to escape the warm afternoon sun, we get to admire the affection and close bonds between the two leopards.
We then end off with a sighting of three Ntsevu Sub-adults as they lazily rest on a cool drizzly morning. A herd of wildebeest and impala erupt into chaos and alarm calls a few hundred meters away. It isn’t long before the Sub-adults are on their way to investigate. Meanwhile, oblivious to the Sub-adults’ presence the Tsalala Female chases the herd of wildebeest directly towards them.
Enjoy this Week in Video…
Having been viewed by vehicles from an early age, this leopard is supremely relaxed around Land Rovers.
