The Great Eight!
“Why settle for the ‘Big Five’ when you can have the “Great Eight?” Mombo does it again with fantastic sightings of many of the most sought after animals in Africa. View Dana Allen’s spectacular photo series showing the “Great Eight of Mombo”!

The three month old leopard cubs at Tubu are doing very well and delighting all the guests lucky enough to see them.

Vumbura Plains guide Speedy Senase captured this photo shortly after this tiny cub had reunited with her mother. The little cub had been missing for a few days causing our team at the camp to fear the worst. Needless to say, we were all very relieved to see the full pride back together again.
