Thanks for another great TWIP Sean. Re your puzzle, my guesses are: 1) Nkoveni 2) her teats show suckling! 3) has she just come from the den? Looking forward to finding out more on Sunday’s video, hopefully?

Thank you so much, Suzanne. Her teets do show suckling, and yes she has just come from a den. Hold out to Sunday for now.

The Tsalala lioness must be so lonely, I’m heartbroken for her

Sean, You showed an amazing set of images this week! Wow, there is a lot to keep up on! Our favorite image is the Marico Sunbird – great shot! We are not sure about which leopard it is, but she has definitely got cubs somewhere!

Thank you so much, Michael and Terri. And yes, you guessed it, this leopard does have cubs.

Wonderful photos and the light in them is gorgeous.
I think that the journey of giraffe in this warm light is my favorite.
The lady leopard is maybe the Novena? And has probably come from feeding her cub/s??
Good to see that the Tsalala lioness is fine. I hope that she will have some cubs soon. However, this means a lot of hard work for her.

Thank you so much, Christa. The light has been amazing of late making the photography stunning. Yes, having cubs means a lot of hard work but I feel the Tsalala Female is up for it.

Waiting with baited breath to hear the identity of the female leopard and whether she has hadher cub(s) yet.🤞🤞🤞

We will hold on to that secret for a little longer. Sorry for the suspense, but I love these games.

Oh my word!!! Sean this must be Nkoveni female and it looks as if she has suckle marks and she is looking around to see if anyone is following her to her den. That will be fantastic to see her cubs. She has an excellent record for keeping her cubs safe. Sean I can’t seem to see the point system from yesterday. I am also hoping for the Tsalala female to fall pregnant soon. Wonderful images once again, thank you Sean.

It will be fantastic to see her cubs wouldn’t it. We are all hoping that the Tsalala Female falls pregnant and has a litter of cubs soon. I will look into the points system and see if there is any issue.

Sean, I don’t know what leopard is in the picture with her looking away. But, she has a heavy milk pouch and is nursing her cub or cubs. I suspect she is coming from her den where the cubs are located. Probably beginning to hunt. Thanks for TWIP’s.

Correct, she has got cubs and looks as though she was coming from a den and was now out and about looking to hunt.

I second Suzanne’s guesses!

She indeed was coming from a den where she had been suckling her cubs.

Thanks for the great photo’s in TWIP. Was wondering are these Talamati lioness part of pride that belonged to Dark Mane??

Yes they were.

Thank you Sir

Thanks for your wonderful week in pictures Sean. The content is an interesting variety and your expletive for each one gives a good backstory. My favorite of course is Ms. Tsalala, looking so peaceful and relaxed! As far as the leopard quiz, I’m guessing it’s Nkoveni displaying her milk pouch, after feeding her cubs or on her way to them. Perhaps she’s moved them into a den site in Londolozi?! I’m waiting for more information to come.

Thank you so much, Denise. You are correct in that this leopard has a milk pouch and was coming from a den where she had likely been nursing her cubs.

Loved the detail shots of the elephants trunk and the dark-capped bulbul in the aloes. Always glad for an update on the Tsalala female, and I spy a leopard with a new litter!

The detail on an elephants trunk is always great to try photograph. Yes, you do spy a new litter somewhere to be found soon.

What a week Sean! Great sightings abounded for you all! Wonder if the Talamati Pride will settle on Londolozi going forward. And of course the Tsalala lioness is always a joy to see!

We also wonder where the Talamati Pride will settle, hopefully it is on Londolozi.

Fantastic to see the Tsalala female. It’s been quite some time since the last update. It’s always heartwarming to hear that she is doing well. It would be even better to hear that she had companionship and offspring of her own. She deserves much good fortune. God bless you, girl.

The Tsalala Female is doing exceptionally well.

I love the hornbill!!

Master Tracker

Super photos and the Sunbird photo shows that smaller creatures and even plants can make great photos.

Thank you so much, Ian. Yes, the smaller subjects are actually more often better subjects.

Impressive elephant bull coming down the path def my fave!

Thank you so much, Anita.

Great TWIP Sean! Just catching up here, so will wait for Sunday to see the leopard info!!

Thank you so much, Paul.
