A WOW sighting Timbits! :clap: :clap: There have been reports of a leopard taking AWC, but no pic evidence. You were also lucky to see Cagn again on the 6th of September. Was this also at Leeudril?
Thanx for posting! :gflower:

Oooops, sorry. :redface:

The Sept 06 sighting was also at Leeudril. I'll be describing it in my TR (Memories of......Red Sand - 2012) in a few days.

Here are some pics of two leopards we saw near Leeudril on the evenong of 21 May 2012. I believe the one leopard is Kagiso, which we first spotted at the start of our holiday,(and had the hoNour of naming) and that the other is a new female, yet to be named :P

I can't tell the difference, so here are a whole lot of pics, and hopefully we can get a positive id.

Thanx for posting Gavin! :thumbs_up:

Your pix with 2 leos - Kagiso is the leopard furthest from the camera. Your pix of the single leopard - I believe that this is a new female. She looks an older leopard and, going by the pix I would hazard a guess that she could be Kagiso's mom(can't see any flirting going on here, and Kagiso obviously knows her).

Another African name coming up Gavin? :wink:

These are pics of Safran seen at 5:30 PM Oct. 10, 2012 at the Lifersdraai waterhole. She then made her way across the road and headed south. It's nice to see she is looking so healthy (at least to my eye). What a beauty she is!

@AFRICAT - lovely sighting of Safran! :mrgreen: She is looking in purrfect condition! :dance: :thumbs_up: Thank you for posting.

We have just returned from the park. Some snippets of information:
Ljiersdraai - a leopard and young cub has been seen at Ljiersdraai waterhole(late Oct/early Nov). :hmz: Perhaps Safran.
Polentswa - a leopard is around and managed to catch a cheetah, carcass hung in a tree.(early Nov)
Kwang - carcass of jackal hung in a tree - 31st Oct/1st Nov).
Cagn - was seen near Leeudril late October.
The Rooiputs female has been seen at Samevloeiing(late Oct).
Miera has been seen at Montrose(early Nov).
Barolong has been seen at Kamqua - with 2 oldish cubs(late Oct).
Tsamma - we saw her at Urikaruus early(12.20am) on the 7th, in lovely condition, then a herd of Eland arrived and she hightailed it out of there. :wall:
We also saw a few spots :roll: near 14th borehole - a leopard's head at the top of a calcrete ridge for a few seconds. So fast - no pix! :redface:

Hoping that some forumite has a few pix to post. :pray:

Hi wanderw

:big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes: ...a lot of spots about!!

A bit late but we saw this leopard on the lower dune road on 5 August 2012, which we think is a female, about 3km east of the access road to Kielikrankie at 09h45.....

Anyone able to ID the leopard from these pics - unfortunately, only got these views :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:
