First Boland leopard cubs!

Some time ago, we obtained this beautiful photograph from a camera station near the Wemmershoek dam.

Looking closely at the picture, one can just see the end of another tail in the background, and we surmised that it might be a mother with a cub…

Recently, we serviced the Wemmershoek cameras again, and to our delight our earlier suspicion was confirmed with these photographs of the cub!

We later realised that there are in fact not only one, but two cubs. Both seem to be in good condition, so we’re wishing them all the best and we hope to see much more of them in future!

Boland greetings
