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!
I always find it fascinating spending time with the Ximungwe Young Male, although he will likely still be with his mother for a while longer. His adventurous spirit allows us to have great sightings every time we see him. Ambling through some of the grass clearings before eventually settling down in some long grass near a small waterhole.
During an afternoon drive, we set off in search of one of the Ndhzenga Males that had been seen with a Ntsevu Female that morning. Upon finding the pair of lions, we discover that there were in fact four females there. Shortly after arriving, an exciting interaction between a female and the male ensues as they greet each other.
As they all settle down, something in the distance catches their attention. Two females set off at a steady pace to go investigate, followed closely by the male. We follow, to find them feeding on what looked like a carcass of an impala. We were sure as to where the carcass came from but must have been killed earlier on that day, possibly by a leopard.
After leaving the lions feeding, we bump into one of the females that we left behind as she is having a drink and then follow her down the road for a while as she heads in the direction of another male calling.
