We finally have photographic proof: The Cape Mountain Leopards roam Simonskloof!
Yesterday, a week after on of the guest took a photo of two Leopard prints down toward Keerom dam, I downloaded the data from the two camera traps set up by the Landmark Foundation. And what a joy: 1 Leopard, 2 Rooikat, several Steenbokkies, 1 Rhebok, a couple of Scrub Hare (still hoping to spot the Riverine Rabbit…) 1 Honey Badger, 3 Spotted Genet, and a couple of dogs and guests either in 4×4’s, MTB’s or on foot, including Kanda and Matata our border collies.
Wonderful news indeed to know these cats are still alive and kicking right on the edge of a sheep farming area.
