I got new guests one day and the first thing they asked me was “will we see a leopard?”. I replied and said that it is possible but I cannot give the odds of seeing one. They understood that the chances were slim but nevertheless, we saw some of our plains game such as impala, warthog, giraffe, gnu, etc. When we were on our way to our sundowner stop, to our surprise, we saw a leopard walking in the road – a big, young male walking towards our vehicle. He allowed us to view him for quite some time before disappearing into the thick bush.
What a surprise it was to see this elusive cat. My guests were, of course, extremely happy and excited.
