Hi mites

Raymond asked me to tell you that they are off line at Berg en Dal so he has not been able to send reports since yesterday.

Hello Forumites

I was on the sunset drive when I came across a male Leopard that has caught an Impala ram, the Impala was too big for the Leopard to drag it into a tree, the Leopard ate a half of the impala, I stay with thLeopard for 2 hours and Oupa & Patrick from Malelane Camp were updated, 3 male Lions from LUKIMBI PRIDE come from nowhere and they passed close to where the Leopard were and they stopped start sniffing around and they have moved straight to where the Leopard were and took the carcass and start fighting over the Carcass and the Leopard run away for the safety of his life.

Enjoy reading

I think Raymond needs to take me out to see lion and leopard. I saw an directed one of the night/sunset drive vehicles to a leopard sightings on the s25 on the 16th of Jan but that was my only cat sightings in 2 and a bit days of game viewing in that area. There were reports of lion but i couldn't find any.

The cat in question

You up to the task raymond?
