While heading into the southwestern parts of the reserve in search of nothing in particular, we managed to find one of the Ntsevu Lionesses. We follow her for a short while as she attempts to stalk a few zebra and impala. Before she can get anywhere close enough to have a chance she is seen and the impalas give off their alarm call. While hoping to have her walking down a dry river bed towards us, we hear some more impala alarm calls in the distance, too far away to be directed at her.
Upon arriving in the area where we thought the alarm calls were coming from we, find a drag mark on the road. We call in the big guns, Freddy Ngobeni to help us find the leopard. It is incredible the level of detail that Freddy notices while tracking. Eventually, we find the Three Rivers Female with a duiker kill.
The third part of our Virtual Safari is a sighting of two Ndzhenga Males and one Ntsevu Female out in the open hoping that they may mate for us.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…

Thank you so much, Michael and Terri. It was such a stunning scene. And yes, Freddy is a pro.
