Jeesh!
Interesting to see the drastic differences in the amount of leopards seen! In the same month as well!

My most recent trips:
March 2011 = 0 leopards
June 2011 = 2 leopards
December 2011 = 1 Leopard
February 2012 = = 8 leopards

The South is by far the best region for seeing Leopard. :thumbs_up:

Grand to see that most of the mites flourish with leopard sightings. :clap: :clap: It means we're doing something right!

Nine! Excellent, Bushchild. :clap: :clap: Yes, leopards are unforgettable - I've never forgotten any of my leopard sightings; can tell you the road, the precise location on the road, and what the leopard was doing!

It will be really unfair to tell you how many leopards I have seen so far, as I am nowadays every weekend in KNP, and we see them quite regularly. :twisted: Just want to mention that we managed to see a beautifull leopard at Punda again on Sunday evening.

If I am counting correctly, 11 leopards. None until last year.
11 leopards VS 3 cheetah
