Thanks Hitman; first time I've seen any two cat species together! At first, we never noticed the leopard at all! Then my daughter nonchalantly looked up in the tree after I suggested she check there to see what the lioness was constantly looking at from the top of her eyeballs: and there he was!

For a fuller tale of how and what we saw:
GO HERE and follow the three=part story

Great pictures guys. I don't have more than 1 of the big 5 in a picture but thought you would enjoy these. Its a leopard fighting off a hyena that was trying to get to its two cubs - the two cubs are in the second picture unfortunately. They were keeping their distance.

Getting 5 out of 5 is almost impossible. Even three out of five is excellent.
Here is a confrontation that took place at the mudpool near the Sweni waterhole. Two of the buffalo left it to the last second before departing the mud pool. As soon as the elephant walked by the buffalo returned to the waterhole.

I wouldn't want to be that car - caught between potentially stampeding buffalo and charging elephants. :big_eyes: Where do you go if there's trouble? :shock:
