Chris, great video🤗


What an amazing sighting. I so love leopards, this beautiful Lady is agile, fast and strong. While instinct does play a big part, her mother has also taught her well and can be proud….RIP little vervet….

Wow, what an astonishing sighting, Chris – how incredibly lucky you all were! I was thrilled to see this leopard in early September, when she was newly independent and looking in great condition, especially as I saw her as a cub the previous year. She certainly seems to be continuing to flourish.

Leopards are such amazing hunters. Great video along with beautiful pictures of the Nkoveni females

Wow, brilliant video catching some of the action of the flying leopard. After all that exercise, catching the monkey seems like an amuse bouché. Hope she found a main course later…… your first time safari guests will be talking about that experience for months to come.

I’m so glad that you posted the story behind this recent video shown on your blog. I wondered what the leopard was chasing….now I know, which makes the story even more interesting! The chase was lighting-speed AND all the while in a TREE! Also I never thought to see a leopard do a complete upside down flip on the top of a tree! The entire video was both humorous and facinating. Your guests were treated to an unforgettable and incredible experience!
