What a beautiful leopard he is – very exciting news Kirst. Thank you for the update.

Beautiful photos of this beautiful leopard. Thanks for the blog, Kirst. It is quite exciting what the future will bring for all these leopards at Londolozi. I am looking forward to meeting them again one day.

He’s exquisite indeed, the fight with the Senegal Bush male was frightening, I thought the older was going to kill him. He might have broken his spine, so glad such a charming guy with diversed dna is making a constant appearance in Londolozi. Yes his black marking on his face is a work of natural art!

Rooting for this guy, and hoping he reigns over Marthly!!

Hello Kirst, we know he was born in Singita and his father was the Nyelethy male. But what about his mother? Did I miss it sometimes? Thank you. Jacqueline

I agree with you, Kirst, he’s an impressive looking male.And it must be tough being a nomad – you mention puncture wounds on his spine and last July, when we saw him, he had fresh puncture wounds on his upper chest. He’s fought some battles; I hope he can safely establish a territory on Londolozi soon.

Hi Kirst, he is a stunning leopard and I love those dark eyes with white eye liner right around his eye. Let’s hope he claims Marthly for himself and stays away from the Senegal Bush male. Hope he recovers completely from his injury. Thanksfor the update.

Thanks Kirst, he certainly has an interesting background, and is a stunning looking male. I hope he stays around – I’d love to see him when I come back in November.

Wow, a new leopard to observe. What a treat, thank you Kirst for sharing, he is a beautiful leopard.

His father Nyeleti was born on Londolozi in the last successful litter of three in the Sabi Sand. So he has ancestral ties to the reserve as well!

Another handsome cat! How lucky!

Another stunning, young male leopard gracing Londolozi with his presence is exciting news and hopefully he can find a bit of available territory to continue to provide great viewing. I believe his mother was the well known Schotia (sp) who spent her time around the Singita camp, Ebony. I recall seeing images of him as a cub after his sister was killed. Thanks for the update Kirst!

I find your writings and descriptions of this magnificent creature so enticing to learn more and more about before my first trip to Londolozi. Is there literature to understand the language, names such as Kangela?

It would be so wonderful for him to establish territory on Londolozi. He’s such a handsome leopard!
