It’s hard to believe that another week has already passed. We have been blessed with many more amazing sightings, with something popping up around almost every corner. Rains continue to fall at regular intervals with both flora and fauna thriving.
An old face that has not been seen in a very long time, made a welcomed visit to the reserve. Xihangalas was seen deep within Maxabeni’s territory and was full of some fresh wounds.
The female leopards have been seen regularly.
Little Bush female was seen comfortably positioned within a large Marula Tree. After climbing down, she attempted to stalk a small herd of female kudu within an open area.
Little Bush’s cub is quite a character and proved this as she tried to stalk a hyena within a Tambotie thicket.
Learning from her mother, the Kigelia female was seen resting comfortably in a Marula Tree as she allowed for some good photography. Earlier in the week, she attempted to hunt a Blue Wildebeest calf, but was unsuccessful. She has to be one of the most beautiful female leopards on the reserve!
The Tatowa female was seen stalking impala, however, the outcome was unsuccessful. Later on, she was found slowly moving through the property near Selati Camp and seemed at ease while resting during the last few rays of sunlight.
On the lion front, things have been less stressful than last week when the Matimba males were roaming around. We have had regular sightings of the Southern Pride and the cubs, as well as the Charleston males who have been hard at work marking their territory.
