Again, a lovely sighting of Nkwe! This is only the 3rd sighting of him, first seen at Tierkop on the 8th January 2012. Seems like he is going walkabout!
Thank you Katy and Francolin! :thumbs_up:

Posting the following leopards on behalf of rjm:

I believe this is Rosa- body spots and spots on left hind leg seem to match. Will check what AstroMatt thinks.

2.Seen a few kms south of Grootkolk on 17 November at 6.20am.

Image

This is Rosa. :thumbs_up: (same sighting as Sharifa's below)
3.Seen at Grootkolk waterhole on 18 November at 5.34 am.

Image

This is Rosa! :dance: Side spots match.

4.Seen at Ljiersdraai waterhole on 18 November at 8.31am.

Image

A beautiful pic of Safran! :thumbs_up:

5. Seen a few km south of Urikaruus camp.

Image

A pic of one of Barolong’s 2 cubs.

Lovely sightings! Thanx rjm! :thumbs_up:
