What an amazing afternoon you had Kate and your images are fabulous! You certainly were able to share an incredible sighting of the Three Rivers female and her young juvenile with your guests, to the point that both sundowner time and dinner recounted the experience in fine detail and excitement! That is every ranger’s and guest’s dream time on a drive, so thank you for sharing this c

Thanks Denise! Absolutely – it was a ‘perfect’ afternoon to be able to spend almost the entire afternoon drive with these two animals.

They are both gorgeous animals, she has an exquisite beauty and the picture resting on the tree branch is really a great shot, she seems to smile. No wonder leopards survive among brute power of hyena, lions and wild dogs, they are the brainers among large predators, don’t need to share anything but rare sweet times with their offsprings. Pure freedom and wilderness at their best

Thanks Francesca. I agree – both of these leopards are particularly beautiful and it is so special to witness these interactions whilst the young male cub is not yet fully independent!

Kate you certainly are so lucky to be able to see these wonderful leopards in their environment. The mother is a beautiful leopardess and the cub is so gorgeous, that look on his face spells out mischief. Thank you for sharing you foto’s with us, they are stunning foto’s.

Wonderful images Kate especially the one of her looking straight at you in the tree. I’ll forgive you for using a Canon !!! Your images are spectacular what a sighting and what light!!!

Thank you Howard! I am borrowing a canon at the moment as I continue to do my research on which camera to invest in (and I am loving it hehe).

I cannot imagine a more pleasant afternoon than one with 2 gorgeous cats interacting and feeding! Leopards are such amazing creatures!

Beautiful photos Kate, what a great afternoon you had. We were lucky enough to spend time with these 2 when we came in February, and the cub was in a very playful mood! He was about 6 months old then, the same age as his mother was when I saw her with her mother Xidulu back in October 2016.

Thank you so much Suzanne. Amazing – so lucky of you to have spent time with them earlier this year. This young male is growing so fast and into an incredible male leopard so watching his growth is something special!
