Whilst our team enjoyed some rest over the New Year, we experienced one of the most wonderful wildlife sightings to date as a female Leopard took temporary residence in Room 2 to give birth to 2 baby cubs.The female leopard gave birth in the wild and brought the cubs to the room one at a time a day apart. She was obviously concerned when they were so young and vulnerable and felt that room 2 was the best place to keep them. Without intervention the Leopard has now moved back out of the immediate camp and although we haven’t spotted her yet, we will be keeping a keen eye open for her and her cubs over the next few weeks.
