I think this has to be the day that sums up the whole trip in a single incident. Leopards are well known to be secretive animals and not seen anywhere near as often as other cats. Sightings aren’t extremely rare, they do happen, but infrequently. As you can read in a previous post we were lucky enough to see a leopard when we went out with the guys from UCF.
We were up nice and early to leave our lodge and get underway. As we were driving off the peninsular we turned a corner and there she was, a leopard right in the road, not only that she had 2 cubs with her. We got to spend about 10 minutes with them before they vanished, but what a 10 minutes!
One of the cubs was very interested in us, as you can see below. We really are exceptionally lucky!!
