This the Vomba female leopard(Panthera pardus) of Londolozi.This was taken a few months before she passed away from old age.Here she was waiting for her then 5 month old cub .I posted a photo of that male cub resntly from my last trip in August who at 1 yeer is doing surprisingly well on its own.The Vomba female was a magnificent leopard and comes from great leopard lineage and she raised many litters successfully

    She’s beautiful. You’d never think she was old. Great shot, and how nice for you to have this to remember her by.

  • Thanks much,because of frequent visits have been able to see same animals over the yearws which is always good but then with the circle of life you get attached to some and it iis sad when they pass on:)
