We seem to be experiencing a serious baby boom on Londolozi at the moment. The number of female leopards with cubs takes game viewing to an all-time high. After enjoying the Plaque Rock Female and her cubs in last week’s Virtual Safari, we spend an afternoon with the highly adventurous and playful cubs of the Xinzele Female.
We arrived at the den to see if the mother was there and without her being anywhere obvious for us to see we sat and waited for a bit longer. Within minutes we caught a glimpse of movement from within a bush right next to the den. Before we knew it one of the cubs was out and about playing around and providing us with great quality entertainment. Shortly after sunset, we left the cubs to their own devices and headed on our way.
In the second part of this Virtual Safari, we join Robbie with a pack of wild dogs as they are about to get up and start moving. Hoping they are going to cross the river we wait in anticipation only to be let down as they go in the opposite direction. We then follow them as for a short while as it begins to get dark.
Enjoy this Week’s Virtual Safari…
