Nice photo Crested Val. Its a risky business hunting porcupine, it can go so wrong. I remember seeing a lioness with a face full of quills up in Shingwedzi. She was lucky not to have lost an eye.

Thanks for sharing

Great sightings Shaheen, Granjan, Jan, and Riaan; thanks for sharing - when I see such pics I simply want to jump in my car and rush off to Kruger again!

Hi James. Thank you. We were very lucky.

The first one was on the H1-2 towards Thsokwane just after the Maroelaloop turnoff.
The second was on the H7 towards Orpen. 7km before Orpen.
The third is on the H1-3 towards Satara just after the baobab tree.

Most of the other Leopards were seen near Lower Sabie, The mystical Balule Leopard at Olifants while sitting on our stoep, H1-1 a few. S1 3 on 1 trip.

Awesome photo Robbie, love the light and the background.
I took these this past Friday also between Lower Sabie and Croc Bridge on the H4-2. This was one of five Leopard sightings I had on my 6 day trip to the Kruger last week.
