Leopard cub in tree

A recent sighting during a Pondoro safari as seen by ranger Sam and his guests. The cub of the Mohlabetsi Mafazi is really getting bigger and bolder by the day. He is often seen in the area around Misi Loop and Rock Fig road which now have become one of the guides’ favorite spots for searching and trying to find these elusive cats. His mother will fetch him after making a kill which will usually be stashed in a tree to avoid losing it to predators like hyena and jackal. The cub will be independent from his mother at around 15 months of age after which he will lead a solitary existence only occasionally meeting up with his mother and other females.
