How wonderful that Nkuwa has raised her cubs to this point, given the loss of her previous litters. I had read that she was denning in Singita, so I know how thrilled you all were to see her once again. Seeing her makes me wonder where her sister is – last I heard she had moved further south but I don’t believe she’s there any longer. Great video!

That is fantastic to see the Nkuwa female and her two cubs. Are both cubs females, shame the one is very skittish and is always lagging behind. Hopefully she will soon be more at ease. But it was fantastic to see them and mom. Hopefully she will stay on Londolozi property for now.

The weekly videos never disappoints. Beautifully done and always show a love and respect for wildlife and their habitat.

Do you not think with all these people making these wild animals so comfortable around people, there natural defense is taken away which would make it much easier for hunters, poachers to kill them?

Wonderful, especially the drone footage. The last time I saw Nkuwa she was about 6 months old herself. Welcome to Vomba’s great-great-grandcubs!

Sean, A fantastic video! The aerial footage is so cool. How exciting to have Nkuwa at Londolozi with her cubs. We hope to see you and maybe those cubs in a couple weeks when we are at Londolozi!

Wow what a treat! Such a lovely surprise! Are they a female and a male?

Wonderful to see them all together! Refresh my memory–is this her first litter, or did she lose one previously? Fingers crossed she’s successful.

Beautiful video again, this week. How nice that there is still another mother with her cubs in Londolozi’s area.
I saw this leopard two years ago in a tree enjoying a meal.
Hope to see her and the cubs again.

Great post Sean (and team),
As a former Phinda guide, your Londolozi Stories help to keep me sane so far from the bush (Somerset West). Just watching the wind in the grass evokes a nostalgia that takes me right back into the excitement of heading out on a morning drive wondering what the day holds in store…
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful serene video! We saw the Nkuwa female a couple of weeks ago when we were there, got some stunning photos of her, but she didn’t have the cubs with her. That was a lovely combination of the footage from the rover and then the drone – thanks for such great coverage! Looking forward to hopefully seeing them both grow!
