Merry Christmas to you and all at Londolozi! Thank you for sharing these special moments with the Plaque Rock female and her Cubs. I could watch this all day!

Merry Christmas to you too. I am so glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks, Sean, for the beautiful Christmas video!
Merry Christmas to everybody at Londolozi!
The Plaque Rock Female is such a pretty leopard and the three little ones are just adorable and mega cute.
It looks as if she has an infection or really bloody tits. Is this a problem for her and/ or the cubs?

Thank you, Christa. Merry Christmas to you too. I don’t think it is a problem for her but must just be really painful when the cubs try nurse.

Oh my! – 14 minutes of pure bliss. Thank you so much Sean for a fabulous Christmas present.

Thank you so much, Suzanne. I am glad you loved it.

Sean, thank you for the wonderful Christmas gift, this video is fantastic.

I am so glad you enjoyed it, William.

Sean, That was was a fabulous Christmas gift! It was so special to see all the interaction with the Plaque Rock Female and THREE cubs – just beautiful. The den seems like a perfect place for them and it’s nice that they are not to far from camp. We know that the Londolozi holiday festivities are so special for the guests and staff and we hope you have a fabulous holiday!

Thank you so much, Michael. it was such a perfect sighting to share with everyone over the festive season. The den is perfect for her.

What a magnificent gift you gave us with this epic footage of the Plague rock female and her three gorgeous cubs. They are so cute and very inquisitive, exploring everything around them. Mom seems to be at ease with her rock den with the three playing around there. Fantastic video thank you so much Sean.

Thank you, Valmai. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Today’s virtual safari was the best kind of Christmas gift Sean. I have watched every video since they debuted during the lock-down, and today’s ranks in the top 10 best, in my opinion. Those cubs are so tiny, yet perfectly formed mini leopards as their tails begin to turn more white at the tip. Personality differences are definitely noticeable as one is quite adventurous, another extremely timid and the third falls in between. At one point we could see them all milling about on top of the boulder and at that point, had Plaque Rock inserted herself among them, you might have had your perfect photo opportunity. Her den looks like the perfect, secluded creche in which to protect her cubs while she’s hunting.

Sending Christmas wishes to everyone at Londolozi for bright, happy days of celebrating with friends and family!

Thank you so much, Denise. I feel so honoured that you regard this video to be up there with some of the best. Merry Christmas to you too.

What a happy, heartwarming Christmas gift! We loved watching the Plaque Rock female and her 3 adorable cubs. May they stay safe.

Absolutely incredible sighting! It’s no wonder the time passed so quickly.
Marry Christmas!

It does warm anyone’s heart! They come as a magical gift and wish for the new year to come! Hope it will be a successful year for these little ones and their mum as well and for anybody, two-and-four-pawed, winged beings!

I thank you for the extraordinary videos you give to people each week. I look forward to seeing the beauty of Londozoli every Sunday. I wish you and the rest of Londozoli a Merry Christmas.
