Simbambili Game Lodge
A word from our rangers.
14 to 21 July 2008
One morning as always the safari started with some warthog sniffing around the waterhole as we were having our first cup of coffee and as we departed from the lodge we came across some very fresh leopard tracks with a difference, these tracks were accompanied by two sets of cub tracks !! We were excited and after some intensive tracking we found Nyaleti and her two cubs in the Manyeleti River. The cubs went in to hiding but Nyaleti came very close to the vehicle and started calling for the cubs as if wanting to show them off. One of the cubs came out after about 10min. A great sighting for ranger, tracker and guests.
