After passing matjulu bridge I heard Leopard calling next to the road, I switch off all the lights and I asked my guests to be quiet. I had impalas giving some alarm call 40 meters from the vehicle, I moved the vehicle forward and when I turned on the lights the leopard was 10 meters from the vehicle crossing the road, what a sighting forumites !!!!
