Dear friends,
Once again the office had be really busy with activities especially the J5, Just yesterday while our guest are on a game drive they found mighty Kali playing and hoping mama Olive will call for a good surprise of an impala or a horg.
Then he started playing with birds butterflies and entertaining him self like any other kid.
All of a sudden a serval cat came around the conner ooo what a mistake walking towards kali.
Kali ambush this little cat and kill it on the spot no fight there Kali took like a flash.
As much as we all know Bella, his grandmother no doubt if he will be as powerful and mama Olive of his late grandma Bella.
Olive on the other had is still looking after all of the litters the older girls Binti and Ayah a long said there little brave brother Kali.
This beautiful predators had gave us a lot of pleasure, entertainment, and a lot to learn about the total behavior of leopards a long the Talek river.

Shakira on the other had well she was gouguers yesterday on my early morning game drive a few min after we sow her she took off for a hunt but miss it lucky tommy.
Like any fist time gust keep pushing can we get close please I said no she is on business to feed her family right now let us wait until she is done the we can get a good photo.
Although this little cubs are well grown up they are still mammy cubs no way they can live without the protection of Shakira.
Yet another beautiful day in the mara, I did not see any of our cats, Chui, Lorian, Ayah, Notch, and the marsh pride I had to take my guest for a morning breakfast.
Today the mara will remain you of the beginning of the great migration with the number or wildlife in the park.
I m off to Amboseli the next day for a day visit but I will be back to the office soon.

Best salaams Jackson Looseyia.

Such a brilliant picture of kali and although I love Serval cats and therefore felt very sorry for it I am pleased for Kali that he made a kill, he is a credit to his mum Olive and his grandmother Bella.
Lovely picture of shakira's girls and as you say, lucky tommy!!!
I bet your guests are having a magical time in your office.
You have a great time at Amboseli Jackson.
Thank you for another wonderful update.

Dear Jackson

You never cease to amaze me. Kali looks in great shape, really beautiful and a force to be reckoned with. Poor Shakira however does not sound so lucky! And 3 extra mouths to feed as well!

I wish all of the big cats good health and fortune and that you also enjoy your well earned forthcoming trip.

Your guests are so lucky to encounter so many of our favourite big cats.

Good health to you Jackson

Little Lisa

Jambo Jackson,

What a wonderful update - so great to hear how Kali is doing and what a fabulous picture of the gorgeous little fella! Like Littlewid, I do love servals too so couldn't help feeling a little sad about it but our fave cats all need to eat. It sounds like Kali is a credit to his mother and grandmother.

Well look at Shakira's girls - how brilliant! I feel like we have been with this little family every step of the way and it is just wonderful to be able to hear how they are doing. These 4 girls have a very special place in my heart and I thank you so much Jackson for keeping us up to date and letting us feel like we know her.

Thanks again and again.

Beautiful picture of Kali! Thanks for another great update.
Like the others, I feel sorry for the poor little serval cat - he probably didn't know what hit him! (although I think the Queen of the Talek River would be well proud of her young grandson!)
Hope you enjoyed your Amboseli trip. Amboseli has a very special place in my heart as I got married there 10 years ago, at Ol Tukai Lodge. It really was the best day of my life!
