What an adventure, even though you have not found her. I would love tracking a leopard like you did.

How disappointing you didn’t get to spot the Nhanguleni Female and the cubs yet your experience in tracking her through thick vegetation and along the Sand River will stay with you forever. Such a lovely video clip!

Jess it seems so exciting to track her and find out where her new den is, at the same time seeing the cubs as well. They are so small and absolutely beautiful. Are you not scared going off on foot looking for her, you never know what is in the bush.

Wonderful creatures in a real heaven. This is a dream come true, leopard cubs and their mum in such a magnificent place. A great example of successful conservation and dedication

Jess, thank you for sharing your wonderful tracking story. Although you didn’t find her, you had the most amazing experience anyway – walking through the Sand River, squishing sand between your toes – glorious. Next time….

Jess, I can stil feel the chill of the water on my feet from the first time we stood in the river. I wish I had the awareness of all around me that you did.
