The facts: Akira, daughter of the venerable Tito, Olare Conservancy. Cub (her first)… tiny (6weeks?), Nancie Wright, seasoned Kichechian, the above title employable for both of them. Top work Charles Wandero, top work Nancie. This is spotted box office, but even the most rudimentary safari fan knows how challenging it is for her to look after this beautiful A-lister, Akira nightly patrols are what she might need.
There is, as yet no idea whether the young scamp is a boy or girl, not that it seems to matter these days, but Nancie, her dappled surfeit not sated, then picked up Nelangu and Jaziri on her way to Mara Camp.
One of our own indeed. I wrote of the genuine thrill of bat-eared foxes last week and this neither diminishes nor demeans that but, close up with a leopard, with a vulnerable infant occupies a decent chunk of the top drawer too.
