Tshwane is about 45 minutes away from where I am now...cubed in by 4 office walls :wall: ...but dreaming of the Kruger Park. Counting down to December as we are packing the parents to spoil them with a nice stay in beautiful Shimuwini!

Overturn the myth that you will only see leopard either early morning or late afternoon, as our very best sightings have often been in the middle of the day - winter or summer
