A sighting they will never forget , lucky guests and good photos. A bit of blood always enhances the photo

How awesome for your guests. Lifetime of memories

We were also at the same sighting with Sandros which culminated in the mother taking the remainder of the kill up a near by tree! Altogether an amazing sighting from start to finish and one of the highlights of an another incredible stay at Londolozi


What an incredible sighting for your guests! Wonderful photos! I look forward to your BLOG posts everyday and would like to wish all at Londolozi a very Merry Christmas!!

Bruce, great photos of the leopards

It’s also amazing that the feeding by the leopard is much less violent than that of the lion.

Hi Bruce, what an extraordinary time and wonderful pictures!! Wish we could have been there. Hope you are well and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year. Victoria

That had to have been one of the best viewings of late. Wonderful series of photos Bruce. I’m in awe….

Some of the most excellent images I’ve seen of leading to the kill and the feed itself….even the practice of killing it again by the cub! I was not aware that leopards feed alone, unlike lions. You taught me something. Your guests were truly fortunate to see such a complete story when seeing their first leopard!

Wow Bruce! What an amazing sighting! Your guests expectations must have been super high after that! They were probably saying “what amazing experience is Bruce going to show us next!” High expectations for sure. Very cool to see the unsheathed claws so close up. Thanks!

a nice blog Bruce and what an experience for your guests to get to see these beautiful cats. Great pics also. Thanks for sharing with us. Merry Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy 2020 to you and all at Londolozi.

Beautiful photos!!!
