It has been a fabulous month for leopards here close to Mdonya Old River Camp, with frequent sightings of our favourite leopard cub duo barely a stone’s throw from camp.

After a few weeks of only having sightings of the young male cub we were delighted to eventually see his sister again and our guests were treated to some wonderful views of the two cubs playing together.

 The leopard is spotted!
Another memorable sighting was of a poor young leopard who was trapped at the top of a big baobab tree as a pride of lions lay all around the base of the tree.

A big male lion seemed to enjoy keeping the leopard hostage and he spent the entire day sleeping directly beneath the leopard. After a long nervous day for the leopard it finally managed to escape under the cover of darkness once the lions became bored of their game and moved off.

Special thank you to Michele Joninon for sharing his marvellous pictures with us.
