2 Days ago, late in the afternoon, the Tegwan male leopard caught a bush buck between room 2 & 3.
Over the last couple of months more and more general game have been coming into the lodge, especially late afternoon. Every day there will be at least 3 nyala bulls, 3 ewes, about 7 bush bucks and 5 warthogs. These animals are all very relaxed and you can get quite close to them.
2 Days ago Bridget got a nice surprise as she was doing afternoon room checks. A young male leopard, called the Tegwan male, had caught one of our resident bush bucks between room 2 and 3 and was dragging it along the pathway towards room 7!
A very out of breath Bridget came running to reception and told us the story so we got onto a landrover and found the male with his kill in front of room 7!
Once again Leopard Hills lives up to her name!
Thank you, Lisa, for the picture.
This male unfortunately also killed one of Makwela’s cubs 4 days ago. Luckily the other 2 survived. Makwela has taken them out of the reserve, next to the koppie where she had her previous youngster.
