It all started one morning when we left the lodge in search for lions. I heard that the big pride of 13 were around in an open area the night before, so I went straight there to see if I could find tracks to see which direction they had moved to during the night. I received a call on the radio that someone had found them – they had just chased a leopard up a tree and stole its food. As the leopard jumped out of the tree, the male lion chased the leopard away, giving one of the females a chance to get the food and run away with it. When the male got back, he saw one of the females eating what he had stole. He tried to get it back but every time he got close the female would run away with it. We had such luck that we had found the lions and got a great show out of it!
