One of the oldest lionesses has had another two cubs. Still too young to tell the sexes, we can only deduce that they are strong, healthy and very confident. They are often seen wondering the banks of the dried out Msunduze River, making it their luscious home for a few months now. On another note, the two young males have been heard vocalising and almost establishing a territory in the south part of the reserve. Interesting to see what the future holds for these two against the other territorial males.
The wild dog pack has made Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge their new hunting ground for over month. With the pack spending a lot of time in the North while they were establishing their new den site and bringing up and protecting the pups, we definitely enjoyed watching them run through the riverbed right in front of the lodge! The excitement has continued with the pack making repeated attempted kills right in the grounds of the lodge over the space of a week.
Staff got together for an afternoon of fun team building activities at the lodge. Trust and communication exercises were lead by Ranger Alex (previously a camp leader) where fun was had by all with some healthy competition between groups. Afterwards we enjoyed sundowners and an afternoon game drive where elephant, lions, buffalo, rhino, hippos, crocodiles and much more were seen.
