:thumbs_up: :D Wildchild you are very fortunate :dance:

I doubt from all our visits that we have seen more than ten leopards. Not 100% sure how many we have seen, but the Impala sightings were many more, but we have seen for the very first time last year after many visits in May a leopard in tree about five km’s from the Berg-en-Dal turnoff towards Malelane gate. The leopard was so beautiful.

I have no idea how many leopards I have seen over the past 50 years. But I do remember a few years ago I had 27 sightings in 9 days in the Kalagadi. Some of the sightings lasting over 2 hours. All the viewings took place in the Ayob river bed from TR to Mata Mata. One sighting was a mother and two teenagers playing and hunting on the 14th waterhole loop for nearly 3 hours. The last time I was in Kruger I had 6 sightings of leopard - three with kills. All were in the Skukuza area over a period of 7 days. Paul Kruger Gate road, S1, S65, S83, H4-1 (x2). Over the years I have seen quite a number of leopard on the S65 - with and without kills. It has also been a good road for wild dogs, lion, and cheetah.

Well, my prayers were answered :pray:

Had 2 reasonable sightings of Leopards near B & D.

And a 3rd, but that was literally a few cm of tail hanging out of a tree, so am not going to count that one.
