After hearing from Pat Grealy that the Nkuwa Female and her two six-month-old adventurous cubs had crossed onto Londolozi, we drop everything and get across to join him for my very first sighting of these two adorable cubs. With the Nkuwa Female now venturing further east in search of meals to keep the three of them satiated she now is seen spending time infringing on her mother, the Nhlanguleni Female’s territory. So with this, we hope to see the trio a little more frequently.
For months, the elusive mother had been keeping her cubs hidden on our friendly neighbour’s property. However, fate was on our side as she started bringing them across the river, providing us with the rare opportunity to observe their playful antics in the lush grassy crests.
As we carefully tracked their movements, the trio led us towards the Sand River, where we reluctantly had to stop our pursuit. But fear not, with a few tricks up our sleeves, we managed to capture sensational footage of the three graceful leopards crossing through the shimmering river.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
