Camp Pan 4:3 Male 


*This image is copyright of its original author


Date of Birth: December 2000
Mother: Tavangume Female
Father: Wallingford Male

The King of Londolozi 

The Camp Pan Male is an enormous male leopard believed to weigh close on 90kg. His massive fore quarters, dark lines under his eyes and split tongue make him unmistakable. This powerful male holds a vast territory, moving incredible distances daily, patrolling the entire area marking his territory.

His territory overlaps with lots of females, including  Vomba Female, Mashaba Female, Tutlwa Female, Maxabeni Female and Nottens Female. 

Camp Pan was born west of our boundary to a female called the Tavangume female in December 2000, fathered by the Wallingford Male. Initially, after becoming independent around 2003, he spent a lot of time around Singita Camp Dam from where he got his name. In 2007 he moved eastwards onto Londolozi where he dethroned the dominant Sparta 5-5 Male virtually overnight.Since then he has taken over the territory of Manyelethi Male (Paleface) who died in September 2009 in the eastern portion of the middle section of Londolozi. Initially he seemed to be pushing his territory further and further north but recently the Marthly male has made this territory his own and is actually putting pressure on Camp Pan, even being seen south of the Sand River on occasion. Sightings of Camp Pan north of the river are now a rarity.

Date of birth: April 2002
Mother: Short Tail Female

Alias: Bicycle Crossing Male/Lex’s Male

Distribution: Territory includes southern and eastern Sparta, most of central Dudley as well as western MM.

General:
The definition of success in nature is the successful reproduction of your own genes. For this reason Short Tail Male is an incredibly successful male leopard. In the past year he has mated with Maxabeni, Nottens and Wacheche Female.

Interestingly, while mating with the Wacheche Female in 2010, he heard his son, the Dudley Riverbank 5:5 Male mating with the Maxabeni Female in the northern reaches of his territory. The Short Tail male immediately chased his son away from the Maxabeni Female and then alternated mating with both the Maxabeni and Wacheche female.
He is a large, handsome dominant male who holds a large territory in the south and east of Londolozi.

His mother was known as Short Tail Female due to her noticeably short tail and he was born in the litter of April 2002. As is customary, until the leopard becomes territorial, he takes on the name of his or her mother – ie Short Tail Young Male. The big leopard now holds a large territory to the south and east of Camp Pan Male’s considerable territory, however it was decided that his name had become entrenched as part of his character, and for that reason he is unconventionally named Short Tail Male even though he does not have a short tail.

The currently viewable leopards on Londolozi fathered by him include:
• Dudley Riverbank 3-3 Young Male
• Dudley Riverbank 4-3 Young Male
• Dudley Riverbank 5-5 Young Male
• Xidulu Females 3 cubs produced in Jan 2010
• Sunsetbend Young Female

TYSON a.k.a Marthly Male 3:2


*This image is copyright of its original author


Date of Birth: 2001

Ancestry is Unknown

The Marthly male originates from north of Londolozi`s boundary and was born in 2001. Seldom seen prior to 2010, this big dominant male leopard with a characteristically large mane, and a rift in his right ear, now holds the majority of the property north of the Sand River. Sightings of him have become more frequent as he continues to extend his territory southwards. Initially he benefited from the void that was created by Manyeleti Male in the north and he has subsequently laid claim to this much sought
after area.

The Marthly Male is believed to have fathered the Nyeleti 4-4 female’s 3 cubs as well as Mbilo female and possibly the cub born to Tutlwa in Aug 2010.

He is spending more and more time around the Sand River which, historically, was controlled by Camp Pan. That would be some battle!

MAFUFANYANE MALE

Born: 1999

Dead: Jan. 2012


*This image is copyright of its original author


Until his death he was the dominant male of Djuma. His name is sometimes spelled Mafufuyane, Mafufayane. Also referred to as 'Muff-Daddy'

Mafufanyane at one time was thought to be the father of Saseka and Tingana, Karula's cubs. The other possibility is the Jordaan Male. Other possibilities: Mafufanyane is the father of Karula, which I think is a good possibility. Bottom line, no one knows when it comes to male leopards which cubs are theirs.

Sometime in June, 2008, Mafufanyane was in a fight with Tyson, And as a result sported a long scar going down his nose. But he won the battle, tyson was younger and stronger, but Mafufanyane still managed to win the fight on pure experience! The scar starts on the bridge of his nose where his forehead markings end and goes diagonally to the left side of his nose.

here is a link to the video of the fight!

DUDLEY RIVERBANK 3:3 FEMALE


*This image is copyright of its original author
Date of Birth: September 1998
Mother: 3:4 Female
Sibling: Newington Male

Litters:

2002 – 2 Cubs – Both cubs died, one killed by a leopard
2004 – 2 Cubs – Both cubs killed by Sparta pride
2005 – 2 Cubs – Both presumed dead
2006 – 2 Cubs – Dudley Riverbank 4:3 Young Male and Dudley Riverbank 5:5 Young Male both independent.  5:5 adopted by 3:4 Female.
2009 – 2 Cubs – 1 killed by hyena off Mad Elephant Pan rd in Sept 2009.  3:3 Young Male survived and is reaching independence.

One of the great-grand-daughters of the famous Mother Leopard, and sister of the Nottens Female, she holds territory in the south and east of the Londolozi Game Reserve, west of the Sand River. She has produced ten cubs since her first litter in 2002, but only two have reached independence. Remarkably, one cub was adopted by her mother, the 3:4 Female. Having lost eight cubs in eight years, the Dudley Riverbank female is a relatively anxious mother. Her poor success rate is mainly due to the dense lion and hyena populations in the area; nevertheless, her territory overlaps that of the father of her present cub (the Short Tail Male), which reduces the risk of it being killed by rival males. Furthermore, the thick foliage provides her with the necessary cover to hunt as well as to conceal her cub. This dense vegetation makes sightings of her and her cub that much more special for guests and rangers alike.
¨
Amazingly enough she is still alive today, she has been driven off, far away from her old territory, and is in pretty bad shape...

Yeah that's a brave and experienced cat. Who managed to survive, I have heard of leopards in same situations from mala mala who did not have the same defending skills as him and died after a attack from lions, after he tried to Scavange from their kill, one week before he wasalmost caught by a male lion on a dry river bank, after he tried to eat from his buffalo carcass.

Nice info,
There is another infamous picture of a Male leopard and Male Lion laying near each other panting, the lion has blood dripping from his face.
The story about the photo said they fought over a carcass I believe, and it was to a draw and finally the leopard ran off at end.
Some leopards are just fighting machines, like the other large male leopard who killed a female or sub adult tiger (i forget) and the leopard died as well. Still very impressive none the less.

Yeah i have seen both of the male lion vs leopard, and the tigress who died. 
From what I have seen leopards are extremly skillfull at defending with all four paw's, Jan and their extreame agility! You will very rarely see lions kill leopards in a fight! They will just damage the leopard so much that they sometimes dies from injuries... They are fearsome cats

This forum was recommended to me as a helpful resource. I am working on cataloging the leopards of Sabi Sands. It's a massive undertaking, but one I feel is worth the effort since all the information about the leopards is so scattered. In addition I'm finding that the information on some leopards is either incomplete or contradicts information found in other places.  I'm hoping to rectify this by creating a a single website dedicated to the leopards of Sabi Sands. In addition to pictures that can help ID the leopard, I want to include some information about each of them. Date of birth/death, parents, siblings, offspring, spot pattern, other identifying features and area roamed.  Also, since many leopards are known by different names on different reserves, I want to include their "also known as."

If anyone wants to help compile information on some of these leopards, I would welcome the help. There are dozens of leopards and the list continues to grow.
