Finally finding a gap in the incessant rain, we dash out into the bush in an attempt to get into a leopard sighting before the heavens open again. Thankfully the Ntomi Male had been found resting in a large knob thorn tree. On our way there we can’t help but stop to revel at the flowing Maxabene River.
With the ground as saturated as it is, we cannot get too close to the stunning scene of the young leopard draped over a branch, which actually plays to our advantage as we pull out the big lens. Not too long into the sighting he gets up and leaps across a gap to get to a small warthog carcass and begins to feed.
He drops the carcass and gives us exactly what we were hoping for, him descending the tree towards us. No longer able to see him feeding on the ground, we decide to call it a day and head back to camp, where we are met with surprise after surprise.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
A single cub of the Ximungwe Female's second litter. Initially rather skittish but is very relaxed now. Birth mark in his left eye.
