Re: Leopard at Malelane Gate (on foot)

Had a very similar experience at the end of a walk in the Malelane area too! The vehicle was in front of us, the lead guide was about to tell me he was going to 'step behind a bush' and ask me to take the guests to the vehicle - when a young leopard exploded from under a bush on the right in front of us, across the path and off into the grass on the left.

A salutary lesson that the walk is not over until all are safely on the vehicle!
Smiling is contagious. Start an epidemic today!

Have you read the entrance permit? Do you KNOW the Conditions of Entry?

Completed over 6 years in Kruger in my caravan.

If I was normal I wouldn't be me!
