We had a visit from a young, unknown male lion this week.  He has been seen in the area a few times, but unfortunately no one has been able to positively identify him. He is sporting a few wounds to his right eye, however, this is just a minor injury sustained in the life of a male lion.

Another amazing sighting this week was of not one or two, but THREE leopards in one sighting!  Little Bush and her cub were feeding on a baby kudu which they had taken down, when Maxabeni showed up.  Maxabeni remained in the vicinity of the females, marking his territory close to Bush Lodge.
