Some of the leopards we saw on our trip in April 2012.

This was the evening of 10 April 2012 at the Urikarus waterhole.

Terrible photo I know, but for me that is now the norm!!!

She came walking under our cabin ( nr 3) and then a hyena chased her into the tree in front of unit 4. When the hyena left she got out and just sat there staring at the waterhole.


I've been trying to clear up some old(ish) sightings using newer pictures and i have an identification for this shot now. There was some speculation that this was Tsamma, but i'm certain it's Barolong (Tsamma's mum).

@Oumie - Thank you for posting! :gflower: Super sighting of the LIT near Kaspersdraai! :dance:

If possible :pray: , could you please post a bigger pic with higher resolution, and/or send it to AstroMatt. This could be leopard no. 50 for the project, and we are very eager to see if it can be IDed. Many thanks.
