This week showcases the big cats of Londolozi with some incredible sightings of a number of different leopards and a few lions. The Senegal Bush Male leaps across the Sand River as he expands his territory further and further west. A very content Nkoveni Female drapes herself over a branch of a tree as she rests. We even enjoy a brief sighting of a leopard we have not seen for a while, the Makomsava Female. Previously territorial in the centre of Marthly, she used to be a frequently viewed female, sadly that is no longer the case with her being territorial beyond our borders now. The Three Rivers Female and her male cub spend a rainy morning playing around a water hole and the Nweti Male rests beneath the larger Natal Mahogany in southeastern Dudley.
An amazing sighting of the Talamati Pride tormenting two young porcupines leaves everyone on the edge of their seats as to what the outcome will be.

Enjoy this Week in Pictures…
Initially seen as a young male in 2016, this leopard only properly established territory on Londolozi in mid-2019
A gorgeous female who is found to the east of camp. Easily recognised by her 2:2 spot pattern she is often to be found in Marula trees.
The only surviving cub of the Nanga female, currently territorial north of Marthly.
A single cub of the Ximungwe Female's second litter. Initially rather skittish but is very relaxed now. Birth mark in his left eye.
Forced into early independence as her mother was killed by the Southern Avoca Males.
He is a large, tall, and long male that has an incredible coat and a tuft of hair on his neck
