We don’t share time relevant rhino sightings on our social media platforms, so even though the below clip was not a sighting from this past week, it is just too adorable to not share with you all…
After finding Ntsumi, a young female leopard, she took us to where she had stashed a bushbuck kill. After hearing the rasping calls of a nearby male leopard, the female brought the kill down from a large tree and proceeded to drag her kill nearly 400 meters. It was there where she encountered a young hyena causing her to hoist her kill once more. A great illustration of her strength and power.
The Msuthlu female has been seen a lot this past week as she went about stalking some prey but was not successful. Later in the week she was seen deep inside the territory of a neighbouring female, possibly looking for a potential mate as she seems to have been unsuccessful in her previous mating sessions over the past few months.
Little Bush has been seen close to Selati Camp calling for what seems to be her cub that hasn’t been seen in the last couple days, however, it seems the two are in close proximity to one another as we located the cubs tracks early on Saturday morning.
The White Dam male tried to hunt a kudu calf but the element of surprise was lost when he attempted to drink quietly.
A male leopard we haven’t seen for some time, Xovonekela, made an appearance one evening as he moved through his territory.
Another older face, Kashane, was seen enjoying a well-deserved meal atop of tree.
Two lionesses from the Eyrefield/Sparta Pride were also seen this week as they made their way through our reserve on a beautiful warm winters morning.
General sightings have been spectacular again this week – we hope you enjoy the below highlights…
Until next time…
