Hi Prof,

Just make a list of all the places where leopards have been seen over the last few months and keep your eyes peeled there, plus look in all the trees.

It also helps to talk to people. We were told about the chap at the confluence. We ALWAYS check out the waterhole & tree before doing the dune road to MM.

@prof - In KTP you have also got to look out for LOGs(leopard on ground). Twee Rivieren is a good place to start with your leopard hunt - 3 leopards seen around there. Good Luck! Hope you have a great spotted 50th! :thumbs_up:

@Salva - awesome pic! :clap: :mrgreen:

@ingrid - you know how I feel about your LOG at Bedinkt! :mrgreen:

@Salva and ingrid60 - have you checked your leopard for spots? :lol: Bedinkt and Langklaas waterholes are quite close to one another, it could be the same leopard, if the sex is the same? :hmz:

Edited: Salva's and ingrid60's leopard is the Langklaas Female - leopard no. 1.34 in the ID Guide(04042014). RIP Langklaas! (08052014)

Had the same thoughts but the face of Ingrid's leopard is not clear enough. Strange: o-dog thinks it's a young male but we thought it was a full grown female.

Thanx Jo! :thumbs_up: Always great to see a leopard at Urikaruus! We were told that there is a male and female that use the U waterhole and birdbath! (check page 3 for a pic of the U male)
