Chivalry is dead in Leopard Society then it seems!

Well my guess is that we must have seen your earlier leopards of 30 years ago as we visited Londolozi several times (my husband was marketing director of Metal Box and the overseas directors loved Londolozi). I have a question (and i should know this one) – How long does an average healthy leopard live? Your blog and photography is breathtaking. I am sitting at work drooling over the latest story of the female literally flying out of her tree (once her’s and now the nasty male’s) What a story guys. This is a prize winner I am sure.

So hard to believe that is the same two we saw mating for days in about 2005!

Camp Pan is a cad! Does he ever kill on his own? Every time I read about him, he has stolen another cat’s prize.

What a bully – I noticed he did not like having his back towards her in the tree – it was true justice that she landed okay – what a joy to see a flying leopard – hope Camp Pan got indigestion !!!

World class Adam! Some great framing there, particularly the opening sequence. Good work bud!

Brilliant and reminds me of what we saw in 2009 when the female was actually pushed out the tree by her very aggressive cubs when we she was trying to feed on impala!

Wow what fantastic video shots. He’s a greedy sod & needs to catch his own food. Thanks Adam for these wonderful pictures, from two years ago!
