largest and experienced territorial male leopards like tugwaan male or campan or sandriver male are well able to stand off and chase away lone spotted hyena

Camp Pan male proberly stands his ground against a hyena and slaps him around 😉

Mike great article.. Will never forget the experience we had.. well camp pan had.. as we watched him take an impala up a tree and wrestle with it for about 15 minutes trying to get it to balance in the tree.. Only to have the impala and camp pan fall out of the tree.. as soon as he hit the ground a hyena came out of the bushes and took the kill from him.. what a experience in our first hour at Londolozi..

I gosh such wonderful sightings and beautiful photography. Just love the landscape shots showing the leopard in his environment.

Way back in 2010 I photographed a leopard running toward the vehicle. Not until I returned to my home and looked at the photos did I realize the leopard was being chased by wild dogs….one of my favorite photos from the 2010 trip.

Hi Mike!

Nicely written blog as always! Maybe the quality of provider of bushmeat for Hyena and Lion should be added to the long list of Leopard’s skills.

And what about Leopard females who also provide free meals to their male counterpart, and often to the father to their cubs? … For them another predator must be added to their list. Life is not easy for a mother Leopard.

To go deeper in relationship with these predators there are very remarkable books with authors like Peter Turnbull Kemp, Ted Bailey(probably the best book ever on leopard) and more recent Luke Hunter and Guy Balme
