Description: Luluka, the Leopard carrying her new born to a safe den

Story from behind the lens: Luluka, the most celebrated Leopard from Maasai Mara had a litter of 2 in the month of Nov 2022. First thr first 5 days of our trip to Mara, we had no luck of to see this most love Leopard of Mara. On the last day of our trip, we got the news that Luluka is out shifting her cubs. We waiting for 5 hours for her to bring her cubs out there you go! She did not disappoint. She gave the greatest show one photographer can imagine. Unfortunately, she lots her litter of 2. This shows how difficult it is to survive in the nature. Hopefully Luluka has a successful motherhood next time around
