I love leopards they are among my favourite animals, but also impalas. They are both graceful and beautiful animals, leopards are highly clever but impalas are not stupid at all. It is nature ‘s law, at least the ram died quickly. The winners must have been happy without their competitor…

Thanks Robert for this great blog, the photos and the video . So your readers can take part, at least a bit, in the excitement of such a kill. What great hunter she is.

Robbie that was an amazing experience to witness. Nkoveni has so much power and strength to bring down a impala ram and hoist it high up in the Marula tree. She is a formidable hunter forsure. Thanks to your guest who took the video and shared it with us.

Bravo to the Nkoveni female. That’s really impressive for her size to take down a fully grown Impala male. The accompanying video and your photos really completed your narrative. I hope she was able to hoist it into a tree before it could be stolen.

To witness a leopard hunting and then dragging the kill into the bush is such a thrill! They are truly amazing predators. Love the photos!
