Great sighting. Still on my wish list to see a leopard (or lion) leap over water.

Wonderful! – as you say, your patience paid off. How old would her cub be now?

Unfortunately we have not seen her cub for some time now and we presume it has passed away. If it were alive it would be roughly 7 months old.

Another vivid example of the value of patience—something appreciated after a few game drives.

Guy, I loved all the photos, especially leopard🤗

What a beautiful leopard. That leap we have all being waiting for. Fantastic!!! Thanks Guy and Andrea.

Absolutely stunning pictures of the Nhlanguleni leopard! What a precious time you spent with her.

Guy, You are a great story teller! What an incredible sighting. So rare to catch any leopard in mid-air! We heard the story from our great friends John and Sue, who were with you! Thanks for creating such great experiences for them during their first Londolozi experience. They loved every minute!

Hello Mike, good to hear from you. Thank you very much. John got a photo just like the one you saw in the blog. Very glad he enjoyed his stay. They are both wonderful people and had such a great time.

It’s the sitting and waiting sometimes that provide the most exciting sightings.

A leaping leopard is on my “must see” list! Lucky you!

WOW!!!! Incredible capture! Truly fortuitous event, and so exciting!!

Well worth that wait Guy !!! What a shot 👌🙏💗

The waiting brought a great pay-off! Lovely blog today.

I loved reading your account of this sighting, having begun the drive looking for wild dogs and then switching gears to go in search of the leopard. Nhlanguleni is looking great, although it’s a shame that she most likely lost her cub. Fantastic photo of her leaping – on my wish list for my next trip and I certainly will have packed a lot of patience!
