Wow! What an amazing sighting!!!! The video was great – thank you so much for sharing it!

Indeed a once in a lifetime sighting, Kate! I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

What a lovely experience Chris. The best sightings happen when least expect it.

That’s correct Marinda. And they often require a great deal of patience too.

What a wonderful sighting, the guests would have been in leopard heaven

How exciting for you and your guests! Love the video – big cub!

Yes, this was rather big cub! Probably one of the last times that it will be carried in this fashion.

No matter you didn’t have a camera- your video really told the story. Additionally, you lived the experience!!
I saw this female in late November, up a tree next to the riverbed with a kill. She was beautiful. She didn’t look pregnant then but perhaps had just given birth? What a great day you all had 📷😊🐆

You were very lucky to see this female Denise, not many people do! If my memory serves me correctly, we suspect that this litter was born mid-late October last year so she had probably given birth and had the cubs hidden away in the rocky outcrop at the time that you saw her.

Wow again! I’m glad you were able to video this. Interesting how the cub curls hits rear legs up to facilitate the carry. I’m sure the mother was nervous carrying the large cub over such open area with hyaena in the area!!!

We were fortunate enough with Trevor to see the final seconds of a mother carrying its cub.

A very lucky experience you had then, Vin!

I appreciate the photo of cub and mother drinking together. Luckily enough I was at that sighting and have the same photo!!

What a beautiful leopard – she seems to have a more gentle expression than some (if that is possible!). The cub must have been quite traumatised! Your guests must have been bowled over at such a fantastic sighting and thanks for sharing it with us.

Give me strength! Right past the game viewing vehicle like it wasn’t there. One might almost expect her to stand up on her hind legs against the side of the vehicle, drop her cub in your lap and say, ‘Could you watch her while I go hunting, please – I’m worried about those hyenas…’

Amazing! I had the chance to spend 2 drives with her and her former cub. It was indeed quite a challenge to find her. She is such a nice leopardess
