Unread post by surpriseh » Wed May 20, 2015 8:39 am

Yesterday afternoon on my way to Biyamiti view point ( 4 km away from biyamiti camp S139 west ) i sppotted male leopard stocking a bushbuck in the riverbed but the herd of elephants spoiled the party by chasing a leopard away that was not good at all. unfortunately i did not carry a camera with me to capture that lifetime sighting momemt!!!
