Leopard sightings have been incredible as always with sightings of Maxabeni, Kashane, Hlarulini, Little Bush and White Dam!

Maxabeni continues to dominate with tireless patrols of his territory, as well as successful kills ensuring he remains in prime condition.

We end the week on a high with the first glimpse of the newest members of the Southern Pride…  And in addition to these 3 cubs, we suspect another female has given birth to two cubs.  This is, however, unconfirmed at this stage.
