Stunning images Nick. I love leopatds much more than lions. It must be the most beautiful cat. Just had an amazing leopard experience in Kruger. Leaves you in awe of these incredible animals.

These pics are simply outstanding: not only in capturing the moment….but also because of your post treatments to enhance the beauty of these leopards and the image. Thank you

From a gloomy UK, your email account today has just made me has sent shivers down my spine! My first encounter, although much later in life, was in Madikwe Game Reserve about five years ago and I can’t describe the tears in my eyes and the goose bump feeling that I had. Last year, over in Etosha, we managed to find ‘our’ own leopard hiding in the bush and, once again, I find it hard to describe my feelings. These animals are so very special and you are, indeed, privileged to encounter them on an almost daily basis at Londolozi. Always savour each and every one! Thanks so much for your “A Year with the Leopards of Londolozi” which i have so enjoyed on a winter’s afternoon in the northern hemisphere and one day I hope to visit.

I am in awe of your eloquent words and stunning images. In spite of several safaris in South Africa I am yet to see a leopard and I long to do so! I must come to the Sabi Sands!

Thank you Nick, I don’t think anyone could have written a better blog on these beloved cats, there is something so unbelievably powerful about them, but oh so graceful & serene! I love your B&W pics as they are so different & more white, but show the cat perfectly. I love the one of the Nanga’s cub with the blue eyes & the power of the Anderson male coming down the tree – wow 🙂 Have a great week & look forward to more Leopards from you 🙂

Beautiful words and stunning images Nick. I understand completely your love for these beautiful leopards and was speechless when I saw a leopard for the first time while at Londolozi in 2013. Thank you for including the lovely image of the little Nanga cub, who touched our hearts in a very special way.

What a privilege is was for us to spend part of the morning in the presence of the Tamboti young female in the tree. Thank you for sharing your passion and love for leopards and photography with Klaus and I.
