I'm sure that, like me, many people have enjoyed seeing our Nossob lion cub grow over the months :D :D :D

So I thought it might be a nice idea to have a timeline of his appearances on the cam :thumbs_up:

Thursday 10th April, 2014

The lioness brings her cub to the waterhole for the first time and together they play in the early morning light :D :D :D

It was during these early days in May that we cammers were super excited about a leopard that had become a regular at the waterhole 8) 8) 8)

As the days went by however, our excitement turned to sorrow as we learned that Langklaas the female leopard was seriously ill :(

WillieV and family were visiting Nossob at the time and captured some incredible images of our cub, his mum and Langklaas as the drama unfolded over several days.


Sunday 4th May, 2014

Our cub and his mum were captured on cam Sunday morning :thumbs_up:

WillieV first saw Langklaas on Sunday afternoon.

At Nossob, as I stopped to open the gate, a good Kgalagadi friend of ours opened the gate for us and told us there is a Leopard at the hide. She was there for a few days and they were waiting for her to come and drink water at the water hole.
I just parked the car, took my camera and went to the hide. She was lying in the shade opposite the water hole.

Back to the Leopard story.

The people in the hide did not know which leopard it was, they said she was very thin and did not look well at all.
She came to drink water twice a day and she stayed at the water hole for at least 30 min per time.
We quickly booked in and unpacked. We then decided to spent the rest of the afternoon in the hide.

The Leopard was still in the shade under the tree.

At 1h45 the leopard got up, but was not interested in us and walked to the tree.
