Sean, This video is one of your best! First the young leopard – a really special sighting with the backdrop of the tall grass – just beautiful. Then the incredible video of the lions. The interaction between the male and female was epic and the closeups along the road show just how comfortable they are around the vehicles! They treated you like you were a tree!

Thank you so much, Marcia. The interaction between the lions was great to see, the Ntsevu Lionesses are quite feisty.

Thank you so much, William. It was such a stunning scene, I wished they would have stayed in that golden light for the entire afternoon, we would have got some incredible shots. Although the way the sighting ended was so exciting.

Hi Sean, it was a good sighting of the lions and the Ximungwe male cub. He is my favorite cub right know. Hopefully we will be able to see new lion cubs in months time. The elephants were on the look out for the lions,kept on smelling the air to distinguish were they are.

Thank you so much, Valmai. It was a great week with some amazing sightings.

Beautiful footage! Have their been any viewings of the Birmingham Cubs or do you think they were all killed by the Ndhzenga Males?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Johanna. We have not seen them on Londolozi since the arrival of the Ndzhenga Males, but having spoken to the guides at MalaMala, I believe that there are still four cubs alive. The mothers have done well to keep them away from the Ndzhenga Males.

Gosh the Ximungwe young male is certainly turning into a handsome male and looks in wonderful condition Sean. Great to spent time with the Ndhzenga male and the Ntsevu females, though it seems one had other intentions. My heart still goes out to the remaining Birmingham male who seems to have lost not only his brothers but his pride,. I do hope he continues to manage on his own 🙏🏻❤️

The Ximungwe Young Male is looking great now. Let’s hope he is able to survive to independence.
The Birmingham Male is still doing very well, he has been seen a few times on Singita.

Very interesting, the tactics and maneuvers of all those lions. A great video again.
You said that the Ximungwe Female might come and lead her son to a kill if there is one. Do the leopard mothers sometimes also allow their nearly adult young ones to take part in a hunt?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Christa. It is very uncommon for mothers to bring a youngster along for a hunt but sometimes it does happen where they come across an opportunity to hunt while moving around together. Young leopards learn most of the skills through play with their mother or a sibling. And the rest comes through pure instinct.

The Ximungwe young male is a great asset to the leopard survival rate! Gorgeous young male, his mum has done a great job. Very interesting lions interactions. Now the Nzdenga males are new kings. Perhaps new cubs soon?

A young leopard, lions and a dash of elephants – a perfect virtual safari Sean. I loved seeing the Ximungwe young male in the verdant green grasses highlighting his fit, muscular body. Then you shared the less than loving interaction between the Ntsevu lioness and Ndhzenga male. Would like to speak cat language to know what was said but it looked like she was in control…. Beautiful warm lighting of the females at the end was a great way to end. Thank you!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Denise. I would also love to know what she was saying.

There has been no news of the young lioness Tsalala for over a month. I hope she is alive.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Hi Iren, She has been seen a few times and looking well for the meanwhile.

Beautiful video of male and female lions. Just a quick question: It seems the quality of your video has recently somewhat improved. Are you using a different camera?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Paul. No, I am still using the same cameras, I have just been filming in a higher resolution.

Paul Canales

Thanks, Paul. There was a lot of tension, but such a stunning scene to start off.
