Wow, this Virtual Safari was truly an extraordinary afternoon that will be stored in our memories. As we embarked from camp, we were immediately greeted by a magnificent elephant bull showcasing his incredible strength and agility. With a Londolozi-first for me, he stood tall on his hind legs, reaching up to pluck a branch from a marula tree—an extraordinary behaviour I had never witnessed before at Londolozi.
But the surprises didn’t end there. Our journey led us to a truly unique encounter—a Ntsevu Lioness accompanied by her five playful cubs had cornered the Three Rivers Young Male, forcing him to seek refuge in the upper branches of a majestic jackalberry tree, guarding the remains of a carcass. The lion cubs, filled with the confidence of their mother’s presence, paraded around the base of the tree, revelling in their privileged position. It was clear that without their mother’s protection, their circumstances would be quite different. As we marvelled at this extraordinary sight, the distant sounds of leopards mating added to the symphony of nature, further heightening our excitement.
Eager for more adventure, we embarked on a thrilling quest to follow the elusive leopards. Although they vanished into the depths of the Sand River, our spirits remained high, knowing that they were not far away.
Just when we thought the day couldn’t get any more exhilarating, we stumbled upon another remarkable sighting—three different lionesses and another cub from the Ntsevu Pride crossed our path. Londolozi once again provided us with a glimpse into the extraordinary lives of its majestic inhabitants and by being in the right place at the right time we were in awe of its natural wonders.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
One of two cubs to survive, the sister lost at five months. Still dependent on his mother, but is growing into an impressive young male.
Fairly skittish male that is presumed to have come from the Kruger National Park.
Having been viewed by vehicles from an early age, this leopard is supremely relaxed around Land Rovers.
