This is Makhulu.

The leopard is massive. A brute of rosettes. He is most easily identified by his collar. Also renown for demolishing the warthogs in Sabie Park, and famously walking out the Kruger boom at Paul Kruger and walking past morning traffic causing people to jump in their cars! This sighting was on the S1 Phabeni road Oct 2012 near the S65 turn off :D

Thanks julle!

Skukuza has a high density of leopards in the area! Still takes luck to find them ... this one did not pose a challenge to spot 8)
