After many years of night drives...

Unread post by Guinea Pig » Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:44 pm

I've been on so many night drives in Kruger and always have fun. This time we decided to take another from Satara. I warned my brother and traveling companion not to expect too much, it's about the experience. After not finding the leopard with the kill in a tree on the H7, Dominique (our guide) took the S12 as U-turn back to camp. Then this happened:

:lol: Not kidding you, Matthys, until this trip I've never seen a leopard in full on foot. Only in trees and one so hidden by long grass that i could never judge how big they are. It became quite the family joke and I became obsessed with seeing one next to the car. It was so bad that I am more likely to find wild dogs than leopards on a trip. Now 5 in 5 days. 4 individuals because we think the other one I posted the video of earlier was the one on the kill next to the H7. 3 of those sightings were like this. The one near Talamati was just too quick for video. 8)
