Wow, that’s right off the top of the cuteness scale! What an experience for all of you, but especially the trainees. Let’s hope Ximungwe has the same success in bringing one of the cubs to independence as she did with her last 2 litters.

It was such a memorable experience, for all of us. I hope she is able to keep these two safe.

Absolutely wonderful, Sean! Thanks so much for taking us along on your fabulous safaris…looking forward to coming back to Londelozi !!

Thank you so much, Marion. I am so glad I am able ot take you along with me. We are looking forward to having you back here too.

Omgosh, So Cute! There’s nothing like the scamper of little 🐆 cubs! Thanks for sharing 😸

I love the way the little cubs run. Always sticking very close to mum.

Hi Sean, that is absolutely awesome and I am so excited to see the Ximungwe females two tiny cubs. How precious are they, and trying to keep up with mom as she leads the way to a new den. Thank you so much James Souchon and new Rangers for finding her with her precious cubs. Thanks to you Sean for this magnificent video of the three of them off to finding a new den.

Thanks so much, Valmai. It was such an amazing experience, one we won’t forget in a hurry.

Well Sean, you broke the cute-o-meter this morning! It’s terrific to see Ximungwe with her two little cubs and fingers crossed she will successfully raise them or at least one as she’s previously done. Hopefully now that you’ve found them, there will be more sightings.
What’s the status of Nkuwa’s cubs? Anyone seen Plaque Rock, Nkoveni, Three Rivers lately?

It is amazing to see the Ximungwe Female with two tiny cubs. I believe that the Nkuwa Female and her cubs are doing well. We don’t see them too often. But they are growing rapidly and so spending more and more time apart.

Fantastic video safari of the Ximungwe female and her cubs. Thank you for sharing Sean.

Thank you so much, William. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Oh Wow! Cuteness and excitement overload! Are they a male and a female? And did you find her new den? Any news of the grandmother, the Mashaba female? It’s quite a while since there were updates on her….

It was difficult to tell. Hopefully we can determine the gender of them over the next little while. After this, we tracked her to where she led the cubs to. Yes, the Mashaba Female is seen every now and then, in the deep southern parts of the reserve.

Sean, You hit the jackpot again – well done! Do you think she already had a new den site picked out?

Yes, I am sure she must have had somewhere in mind that she was moving them too.

So cute, these tiny cubs and their mom.

They really are so cute.

OMIGOSH!!! So adorable watching them patter alongside mum!

They are such cute little cubs aren’t they?
