Simbambili Game Lodge
A word from our rangers.
14 September to 21 September 2008
This last week has provided us with some excellent viewing of not only Leopard and the other members of the Big 5 but also Cheetah. One male cheetah was spotted in the eastern part of our traverse area resting with a full belly. We managed to view him for 2 days whilst he remained in the area and then on the third day he managed to kill an impressively big Waterbuck. Unfortunately for him the territorial male leopard Mafufenane was in the area and watching closely. With very little ceremony the big male Leopard proceeded to chase the cheetah and promptly hoisted the waterbuck carcass into the fork of a nearby Marula tree.
