I just saw this post in WH chat from the Lodge :

Hi good evening all

There where 5 Lionesses in total and they where trying to hunt. Unfortunitly the wind wasn't in there favour and the Impala's and Wildies got a way.

I left them and they were heading in a north westerly direction away from the camp. I will be trying to find them in the morning if they are still in our area.

it looked like the Styx females and they are very hungry.

Hope everyone enjoyed them.

Good night

Ernst

Hi All. I've been sitting here mulling this over. When it came to the camera, I could swear I could see spots. I'm calling leopard. I also think it circled the cam tree and went around the right side of the waterhole. The other critter that followed it between the marula and the mound looked more hyena. I'm just saying... Smiling

Edit to add: Embarassed Or it could have been 5 lionesses!! LOL, the lodge just confirmed it in the waterering hole thread.

The pics I made do not show that, to me WD. She was standing there for a long time, just staring to the left.

And it is indeed the hissing, I heard, what made me think of a Leopard.

Not me.  Just looked like a young, healthy lioness.  But, I hope you're right so we can see cubs!

It was walking form the tree and then back again close to tree line. Those sounds are that Lioness sounds?? More Leopard.

Are they both there? 

Just from my experience hearing Leopard on the cam ..it is usually a spitting hissing sound, like fighting cats make.  The sawing sound is what they do to communicate with other Leopards, not while hunting or fighting off other predators. 

 And I just heard spitting hissing, and a lion sound ..and of course the wind so can not be sure

that alarm ?? was it NK or EP ?   I saw the lioness exit at about 2 oclock at NK

I saw the first cat exit under the camera and then a second cat walked from the right (3:00) side of the waterhole (but in the grass) quickly to the path by the Marula Tree.  Later, the first cat returned from the left of the water hole (the 10:00 side) and moved directly to the tree line on the far right (NK).

Pretty sure there's more than one kitty out there.

I heard Leopard also Swift; I think they are both there.
