Thlangisa introducing us to her two Cubs

Posted on June 8, 2014

It’s been a very special couple of weeks in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, as Thlangisa has given birth to two Cubs and she has brought them out to share this special time with everyone.

Unfortunately the details surrounding the Cubs, as to which Male Leopard could be the Father and when exactly they were born, are not know – but it is believed they are around 8weeks old.

This is Thlangisa’s first litter, as far as we’re aware, which is wonderful considering she’s the daughter of the Mambirri Female who’s territory was in the Southern part of out traversing. We look forward to spending time with these cubs and sharing the special moments between them and their mother.

  1. Nice pics Johan – my son Tom and I were privileged to be there when some of them were taken. And it completed a morning drive when we had earlier followed the young male leopard up close along the river bank. Frost on the ground as we set out, but perfect clear blue skies. Watching the cubs play was the last sighting we had before we had to leave Leopard Hills – a memorable way to close out a memorable trip
