The number of views over the previous week has been nice. The Ntsevu Pleasure with their cute cubs have taken refuge within the southeastern components of Londolozi.

The additional water means we nonetheless get to see the fowl with the longest legs-to-body ratio round Londolozi, the Black Winged Stilt. The younger cheetah has returned to the central components of the reserve to make its presence recognized.
The largest information out of Londolozi this week is that the Ndzanzen feminine led us to her lair and revealed one cub.
