Wonderful pics Jan :thumbs_up: I also once thought I would see a leopard kill but it didn't happen. Did the prey animal notice the leopard or what happened?

Location: Heart, mind and soul on an early morning drive close to Satara, unfortunately the body is in CPT!
Just returned from an amazing 20-day trip to Kruger.

We were the only vehicle to enjoy this awesome sighting.

Awesome pictures!!!
Spanishwolf think I know this male leopard.
I think he roams the S3, S4 , S1 and H11?
If it is the same leopard, saw him on S3 about 2km from Kruger Gate in a territorial fight
1 of the biggest leopards I have seen

YES SAF!!!!
I really thought it would weigh at least 80 kg. It's huge.
This Leopard is by far the biggest I've ever seen.
It's all a big boy! :mrgreen:
