Simbambili Game Lodge
A word from our rangers.
18 to 24 August 2008
We've been very fortunate this week to have seen both resident male leopards, Mafufanyane and Tyson. They seemed to be more interested in their territorial patrols than actually hunting! Matimba the young male leopard managed to avoid the two dominant males and it is pleasing to that his limp has improved a lot in the last month. We also managed to see the old female leopard Safari killing two steenbuck in one night and then had the privilege of spending the next three days watching her finish her meal in the vicinity of Simbambili Dam. A younger male leopard, Mvula, who has been spotted on occasion in the area before, was seen joining her but only temporarily. He also managed to kill an adult baboon but lost it to the hyenas. In addition the female leopard Salayexe was seen marking her territory on Piccanin Uthla.
