I've been fortunate enough to visit Kruger multiple times a year.
I've always heard of leopard sightings near Transport Dam but luck was never on my side and I almost believed that maybe it was just a myth...
In March this year my luck changed 8) and I was privileged to witness this beautiful male hunting Impala and Waterbuck

Lovely picture Phokojwe it shows the utter concentration in the eyes and face that only cats have when they are on the hunt.

RoelfA your picture is great I like watching the cats front feet as they walk with them moving at a sideways angle as you have captured nicely or when they are creeping along and lifting them up slowly and holding them in the air before slowly putting them down to avoid noise.
