We were in the park in December 2010 staying at Berg-en-dal. Ons Christmas day on our way to Tshokwane we were driving slowly, embracing every inch of nature. Since there was alot of baby impala at the time, being so cute and all, we stopped to watch them all cross the road. While we were sitting there watching the last one cross the road suddenly gracefully running in front of the car was a leopard. The Impala didn't even make a noise so they were clearly unaware of his presence. As he ran into the bush, my friend picked up the camera to take a photo of the leopard, suddenly realising what was going to happen,she asked me nicely to please drive. On one hand I can kick myself for driving away, since you do not see this happen often, but on the other hand I was glad I didn't stop to watch.Although it is nature and he must eat,I do not know if it is something that I really want to see.Next time it happens I will watch but close my ears so that I can hear the Impala dying. Thought I would share this little story with all.
