Great to see this young leopard again. I hadn’t seen him in ages and how he has grown. Seen just off Nyeleti Pan interacting with Tutlwa yesterday. We all hope to see more of him.

Amazingly this young male was seen yesterday afternoon south of the Sand River, which is far from his natal territory. He was hunting bushbuck unsuccesfully in Camp Donga, hindered somewhat by a troop of monkeys who were alarm-calling at his presence.
He then moved South and West, where he managed to kill a young impala ram, but was robbed by a Hyena before he had taken a bite. He managed to reclaim what was left of the kill about 20min later.
He is taking a big risk coming into the area around camp, as he is still young and far smaller than the Camp Pan and Dudley Riverbank 5:5 males he might encounter in the area.
