Drama in the African Bush


In a stroke of incredible timing, the team at Mombo witnessed an extraordinary scenario…

One of Pula’s two tiny cubs was spotted climbing out of the tree she had hidden them in. It transpires it had just managed to evade a python which had taken its little sibling.

After a few hours Pula came back and took the surviving cub to safety in a fallen tree. She went back to the tree where she lost the one and tried her best to get the python out but to no avail.

As Graham says, “Hopefully her new hiding place for her precious secret will be safer”.

The incredible video footage was shot by Jemima Middleton
