@isinkwe - lovely sightings of Motsumi and Itumeleng! Thank you for posting here. :gflower:
Motsumi - just north of his usual range! :thumbs_up:
Itumeleng - She has not been seen at Kamqua for a long time. I think she is exploring south due to the 'free' range, now that her mom Barolong has passed on.

@WillieV - thank you for helping with the IDs! :thumbs_up:
