What is the status with the Tsalala lioness? Does she still have a companion? On Londolozi or back to Singita? Thank you, Linda

Thanks Ross, What a great idea to give an overall update. The wildlife is constantly changing and it is hard to keep up with all the movement!

Lovely update! I myself am always wondering “what’s going on in the bush “ and “what’s new with this or that Leopard” interesting how we form such a quick attachment as guests.

Nice recap Ross. You mentioned that the Ximungwe young male would be named soon, and now we know by his own biography, it’s Ntomi. I’m sure we’ll learn the backstory of the choice of this name soon.
As far as the Ntsevu Pride, it’s interesting that three of the four remaining females have lost cubs fathered by the Ndhzengas, yet those same females birthed and raised cubs successfully by the Birmingham males…. Perhaps these males have tried to manage too many prides and thus haven’t been as successful in increasing their progeny. If anything is certain, it’s that the dynamics will change daily.

My particular favorites…….Senegal Bush Male and Flat Rock Male. And I love the name Ntomi for the Ximungwe Young Male….what does it mean? We viewers up in the northern SS hope that he might come this way at some point!

The secret and also the not so secret lives of Londolozi’s big cats are fascinating. Their interactions and how the lions’ prides develop and which territory young leopards will carve out for themselves, always interesting.

Ross, thank you for s wonderful update in some of the predators of Londolozi.

What a stunning collection of wonderful leopard males, real pin-ups! It is so interesting to read about their stories and movements. Each one has such a different expression, they are likely the most expressive animals in the bush. I hope the Birmingham offspring will survive, their family has been brave and wise.

Good update thank you Ross. Loved all your stunning foto’s and off course the dynamics of the leopards territory that is changing rapidly. So what is the Ximungwe male’ s new name going to be. Is Ranger Dean still with Londolozi or has he moved on.

Thanks for the update Ross. I wonder at what point does a leopard’s territory become too much to handle? It seems that if one keeps expanding, that at some point he won’t be around a certain portion of it frequently enough to defend from other leopards (especially in such a high density area like Londolozi). Is there an average size territory for males?

Good to see Dean, one of my favorites. Hopefully, Ntomi will establish at least part of his territory on Londolozi property.
