A Week in the Bush Vol. 153

The week started off with regular sightings of the Kigelia female leopard, and she continued to feature throughout the week with some interesting interactions between her and Maxabeni who seems to have picked up on her mating with the Kashane male.  Maxabeni chased Kigelia up a large Marula tree as she constantly growled at Maxabeni as he tried to approach her. An incredible interaction between the two!

This was the first time we had had such a relaxed sighting of a Slender Mongoose. It literally sat staring at us bobbing and weaving behind the grass.

Moving on to the lions…

The Southern Pride have been active this week and constantly in search of their next meal.  The pride is well, including their 14 cubs and we have been privy to some amazing interaction between them.  The missed a hunt at the end of the week when one of the cubs gave away their position – a harsh lesson learned.
