Although Lion Camp is closed for renovations they have a film crew in camp focusing on leopards. They are seeing plenty of action at Acacia Loop including:
The female leopard known as Malaika has a new cub (3 months old). Malaika was seen near her daughter feeding on a puku kill.
Luambe, the dominant male leopard and possible father of Malaika’s new cub was also in the same area and had an encounter with Malaika where she was aggressive towards him (probably to protect her cub). Luambe stole her kill but the cub was unharmed.
Other exceptional game sightings in July include:
Wild dogs denning at Hippo Lagoon – the film crew has not seen the pups and is staying away until they are out of the den – we will keep you updated on this exciting development
Herds of 25+ Cooksons Wildebeest
A hyena with a small pup (also at Hippo Lagoon)
A very shy, lone eland bull has been seen regularly at Fish Eagle Lagoon.
Large numbers of young Yellow-billed stork are being seen. These storks nest in the Nsefu sector during the rains.
