It is the same leopard which roams Oranjekom waterhole,Moonrock and the Black Ridges.
I was also informed this morning by the Section Ranger of a leopard kill close to a waterhole, a male springbok was caught, but not eaten,but then yesterday it was fed on, would be so interesting if you could have placed a trap-cam there,put it on video, as it is so rarely that you will find it for a area like Augrabies leopard feeding. :) .
