Spotters, meet Murray, no stranger to this mercurial mail-out and indeed one of Bush Camp’s favourite sons. Murray has been a regular for many years but this January has outdone himself, with a whole pick and mix of cats with their candy-faced cubs.
Don't know where you spent Christmas this year, I don't suppose Jackie Turner really cares as she found herself almost knee-deep in cats of all sizes at Bush Camp. Lions with eyes still only half open and a suitably topical leaping leopard.
When the combined weight of knowledge from three veteran guides with over 100,000 game drives tells me a leopard has had her cubs within the last few days, I am inclined to believe them. The soft folds of fur near her tail confirm this as does her behavior. Fig’s well documented pregnancy is over.
