Thanks Big 5! Incredible photos. We all know bizzzzzy. Look forward to the video when you have a chance to get it posted. :popcorn: :clap:

I remember like it was moments ago our 30 second night time sighting of a few spots on a leopard on our last night at Camp Shonga (Shishengani). I was shaking for quite a while after that! Very exciting. :shock:

Wow big5spotter, this must have been an awesome experience.

We seen a lioness pulling down a kudu a few years ago. That was also amazing, but I cried my eyes out. It was so sad hearing the kudu crying for help. The buffalo must have made a lot of noise too.
