Crested Val, what a fantastic pic of the two kitties ! Early next month I am going to search the Mahonie Loop over and over in search of these two (and/or their mom). Can you recall on which side of the loop did you see them ?

We were with Val when we saw them Lennie and it was the end nearest the camp gate and within a few kms we found a huge male Leopard who crossed the road in front of us and then barely a km further on these 2 cuties sitting on a termite mound.
I will hopefully be starting a T report in the next few days when I will have some more pics of the male and the cubs. :thumbs_up:

Hi GlenD

Very wet! Hopefully a bit drier in April...
We hardly saw any elephants there, and NO animals drinking at Klopperfontein because there was so much water in the veld.
But flowers and birds everywhere... lol
You should be a bit luckier by then!
God bless,

Punda in July, I cannot wait. :D :D
My last visit to the north I was about 10 years old (so it was a good 14 years ago now!) and I hardly remember anything. These sightings have me really excited :D
