Another Leopard sighting yesterday afternoon - after the turn off that goes to Malelane camp, it was moving on the side of the road heading west. General Texson did miss it with few seconds.

Very interesting topic, thanks for the updates.

Any leopard activity heading a bit further north towards Biyamiti? S118, S114, H2-2 & Afsaal?

We have 4 nights at Biyamiti in Nov/Dec, very excited.

I was on my way back to the camp from Malelane town when I came across 3 cars on the sighting of a leopard after the big marula tree.

Hi forumites,

Attached a photo of a leopard sighting which our 5 year old daughter made (we're extremely proud of her :clap: ) on 12 June about 4km's from Berg-en-Dal on the S110 @ 14:15.

I had another leopard sighting the following morning at Matjulu waterhole @ 6:25 where I was lucky enough to be the only car around. :D Unfortunately, my photographic skills (while driving) dropped me on the day since I was alone in the car and the photos taken were bad. Luckily I managed to make a video clip or 2 to show the family what they missed out on.

This morning from Raymond:

Hello Forumites

I hope people will agree with me when I say berg en dal is one of the best areas to see the leopard in the park.

Last night I met kwagga 1, who updated me of a leopard kill at Matjulu Bridge, when I arrived there it was busy dragging the carcass into the thicket. We only stay for 10 minutes and left, when we came back the carcass was on the tree and the leopard was moving on the ground.

What a lovely sighting
