Good day fellow readers,
It’s been a warm week at Leopard Mountain with Glorious days and cooling afternoon storms keeping everything green.
As a result of this warm weather animal activity on the reserve has been plentiful and the first of the summer babies have started to drop with both new born Impala and Warthog being seen on drive and around the lodge.
The Female Lions have been very active this week and have come down from the north of the reserve and been hanging out a stone throw away from Leopard Mountain. This has resulted in some fantastic sightings with one group of guests having a memorable time watching the girls playing by the river.
The river in front of the lodge has been flowing for the past few weeks as a result of all the rain. This has attracted the presence of a fish eagle which is extremely exciting as one has not been seen in the area for many years. This has caused quite a stir with all our birding guests.
Rhino have also been seen a lot this week as well as the male Lions. Our nocturnal drives have produced loads of Genets, Owls, Chameleons and Scorpions.
Until next week…
The Ranger Team
