What a beautiful specimen he is Jan. I wonder if that could be the same leopard that Kaapsedraai saw around LP.

Unfortunately the leopard only gave us 2 hrs :? . He became very agitated when a car arrived, who did not switch their engine off and was running their air con as well. He eventually jumped down and disappeared into the undergrowth. We tried to look for him for a long while after but he had gone. Unfortunate, but it goes like that sometimes.
