What a great sighting! Loved the photos! Good for the francolin, bad for the leopard! Hopefully she found something to eat soon thereafter!

A sighting of a lifetime! That’s what safaris are all about. Each day is a gift, opened with anticipation, and providing joy for whatever you receive. That was a wonderful sequence of photos.
