Wow! This is a once in a lifetime sighting. You never know what you see out there in the bush.

That has to be one of the most incredible sightings ever! I just cannot imagine! I have not seen many snakes on my many safaris. I certainly have never seen anything like this. I would say I don’t want to, but then again, it is nature at work, and has to be jaw dropping (so to speak) to watch. Thanks so much for sharing this, Bruce. It is etched forever in my mind!

That is such an incredible sighting!! To see a python is rare enough but to see one hunting??!! I’ve also heard of two sightings when a leopard approached a python feeding (on an impala or a duiker) and it forced the snake to disgorge its prey.

Unbelievable! That had to have been the sighting of the week. The video really gave credence to how a snake can catch and consume its prey. It’s straight out of National Geographic. I can hardly wait for your next adventure.

INCREDIBLE! What an amazing sighting. Please tell Garrett and Life my expectations for my next visit are up! haha – kidding!
What luck!
