Guineafowl are usually a good indicator as well. Often though its because of Aireal predators like the African Harrier Hawk,but every now & again you find them going crazy & chilling in the trees trying to escape danger below. Leopard's are always keen to have a crack at these birds & often flush them out.
Great comments coming through, very interesting to read! I must say though, Giraffe have always been my most reliable spotter. Their height gives them a great advantage & the fact that they stare constantly in the direction of the predator makes the job a lot easier. :wink:

When the baboons and monkeys go into a frenzy – leopard. On two occasions we were fortunate to see leopard where either the baboons or monkeys gave the leopard’s presence away. Once on the Skukuza- Lower-Sabie road and once on the Skukuza – Malelane road.
