The young lioness Tsalala was last seen sometime in January. I’m worried the Ntsevu pride lions may have harmed her. Is there any new news? Thank you.

Hi Iren, I believe she is doing well. She has been fairly scarce of late. we will hopefully put a story out on her soon.

I really wish I could. And thank you for your reply, Sean.

Yes, I’m also awaiting news of the young Tsalala lioness. I’ve been very worried too.

It was incredible to be able to spend time with them and see what they get up to when they are so fully of energy.

Sean, that is pure gold! While I loved the photos of these 2 in TWIP, for something like this there really is no substitute for video, so many thanks. It takes me right back to 3 weeks ago today…..we’d spent many hours over the previous days trying to find these sisters, hoping they’d come across the boundary. Then on our last drive, Alfie and Judas found one of them. We followed her to a dead knobthorn tree which she climbed. We were so happy to see her, even more so when her sister arrived . We felt so privileged to watch them play together for well over an hour.
Nkoveni did such a wonderful job in rearing Plaque Rock to independence, but she must be absolutely exhausted having to feed these 2 as well as herself!

It truly was an incredible sighting. I am so glad you got to enjoy something similar. It really must be exhausting for the Nkoveni Female to look after these two.

Hi Sean, what an amazing sighting of these two cubs playing, up and down the tree and all around the water hole. They were so close to your vehicle, it is so beautiful to see them interacting with each other. Fantastic video, thank you so much.

Thank you so much, Valmai.

This is a dream come true: two sisters leopards playing together with no thought on their mind. A perfect moment in time. Are they related to the mother leopard? Anyway, almost too good to be true. Life is too often cruel and hard, instead this is the best side of it.

A dream come true it was. Spending the uninterrupted time with them throughout the morning playing. No, they are not related to the mother leopard, they are from the Sunsetbend lineage.

Thanks for this wonderful video!
These two girls are just so beautiful an dit is fantastic to watch them playing with each other.
A very successful and lucky mother, the Nkoveni Female.

Oh Sean, I suspect this is ranking in the top five virtual safari videos posted to date! How fortunate are we viewers to share in your good luck to find these two sisters in such a remarkable setting. I had to watch it twice after opening the email, in order to fully appreciate the interaction between these two. It seems one sister is a bit more of the aggressor, but her sibling certainly doesn’t roll over and give in. I suppose once they reach independence, they will go their separate ways like Finfoot and Nkuwa, but for now I’ll delight in every sighting of the two of them you post.

Thank you so much, Denise. It truly was an amazing sighting. Yes, there is definitely one that seems to be more of a trouble causer. I am in the process of creating an ID profile for both of them to be able to identify them easier. I am sure they will eventually go their separate ways but for now we are loving the time spent together.
