on Teamwork to Find a Leopard in a Tree

Nick, what a find!

Love the teamwork! The photo of the Ingrid dam female in the tree was deja vu for me – I was with Guy in November when we sighted her and came away with similar images. She is such a pretty leopardess and easily recognizable. Assuming no cubs for her yet, after she lost the last ones?

Exceptional teamwork, Nick. One of my very favorite images is seeing a leopard resting or sleeping on a tree branch. Your image was no exception and perfectly framed. Seeing the massive male Anderson image reeked of true masculinity.

Ingrid Dam female. That’s nice. She’s Xidulu female Leopard’s mother.

Hi Abraham, that is correct, if you’re referring to the Xidulu female in the northern Sabi Sand reserve…

We’re not supposed to listen to the radio, but it’s clear that the communication among rangers is critical.

Always love finding a leopard in a tree. They give a look as if to say don’t make any noise or give away where I am. They are often so hard to see but when they are stretched out on the limb lord or lady of all the see the are magnificent. Victoria

Really enjoyed the sighting and the explanation of how the ranger team work together to provide a great view for a lucky guest!

Great team work. The trackers have got amazing eye sight spotting the animals.


Nick, We love hearing about the constant teamwork and are always amazing how the tracker and rangers on different vehicles all work together – ultimately reaching their goal!
