p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Botswana #7 A Leopard Story


I had some exciting leopard experiences on my last trip. In the next few posts I will tell the story of one such sighting that lasted 2 days.
So we start out early one morning and within 5 minutes of leaving camp, the driver and tracker stop, jump out, start looking about, throwing grass in the air to test the wind etc. I thought this was just for show, as it was our first day at this camp. So we drive off, do a few loops and they point; Leopard. Where There was a dead impala on the ground but somehow they saw this leopard in a sausage tree. And so our incredible leopard day started.
Please enjoy, and thanks for looking.

/1) A lovely female leopard in a tree, with a dead impala below and almost nothing eaten, Strange indeed.

/2) She becomes restless, looking out from the tree, occasionally growling and flehmening (Not sure of the spelling).

/3) She descends from the tree. (Sorry, you may have seen these before).

4) Get down, Hurry up. These viewers want to know what happens next






5) She leaves her kill and wanders away, scent marking and even standing on her hind legs to look around. Stay tuned; you won`t want to miss what happens next!!

Don't leave us in suspense too long Don ! What a gorgeous set. I love that last shot. Can't say I have seen shots of one in that position. Her gaze seems fixed on something, but what??
