Such a shame about his eye Sparrow! But as you said, it doesn't seem to bother him, he is in a very good condition and beautiful! :clap: :clap:

On my second ever day in the Kruger I asked if we can stop as there might be something in the tree we just passed and there was. He seemed to be just as interested at looking at us as we were of him/her.

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
