Spending time in the south-western grasslands has proven to be great for game-viewing in the last couple of weeks. This week’s Virtual Safari was no different. We spend some time with a large elephant bull as he moves from one marula tree to the next, feeding on the fallen marula fruit. During this sighting, a male cheetah is found nearby. We head into the area, hoping the male cheetah will begin to get active.
A few mornings later, Robbie Ball finds the Senegal Bush Male near to the Londolozi airstrip. We move into the sighting hoping that this leopard will add to the long list of incredible viewings we have had near the airstrip in the last few weeks. We were treated to a spectacle much greater than we could have imagined… He appears as though he is following the scent of another two male leopards in the area, quite possibly the Maxim’s Male and the Flat Rock Male. So fixated on the other leopards’ scent he marches past numerous herds of impala unbothered by their raucous alarm calling.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
Initially seen as a young male in 2016, this leopard only properly established territory on Londolozi in mid-2019
