Electra is one of our leopards in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.
Electra was first collared in May 2010 when she was approximately about 2 years old. She has grown into a beautiful leopard lady and has become one of Okonjima’s most famous leopards.
Due to the fact that she was initially very shy and cautious around cars and people, Electra was only seen rarely during the first two years.
Raising cubs in a high density leopard area, isn’t easy and so Electra lost multiple litters due to infanticide by males. In July 2017 Electra gave birth to single male cub which she managed to raise up until now. Electra and her cub are often seen together with Mawenzi, who is the sire of the young male leopard.
