Savanna, the Legend

I wanted to pass on the sad news to everyone who has been to the Big Cat Reserve and photographed that beautiful cat - Savanna.

Savanna and her cubs were released late last year and were doing well out in the reserve. In December we photographed them all at an Impala kill. Many thanks to David for climbing the closest Marula tree to get an unusual photo from above :) !

Unfortunately they must have come across the Lions on the reserve and Savanna died trying to defend her cubs. The cubs made it back to the lodge.

She will surely be missed by all who came into contact with her and especially those who had the unique opportunity to photograph her.
