Naming wild animals is contentious at best. Simple ID numbers are often employed and understandable, cloying western names perhaps not so.
A young originally shy male leopard that has skulked around Kicheche Mara Camp for a while is now being seen with some regularity and is worthy of some recognition.
If there is a clamour for a name why not an appropriate Swahili one? Also, if you are going to listen to tenders why not go to the top of the pile to the grand doyen of African writers: Brian Jackman, the greatest and most venerable of them all.
Brian was quickly out of the blocks when the first shot was posted of this handsome boy and suggested Kivuli (Shadow)….it does the job and more. Asante Mzee Brian. Asante Kivuli
