What an awesome sighting.
We have been to Kgalagadi twice in last 2 years but have not had the luck of seeing a leopard yet. Hopefully this year.

All sightings during our August KTP trip were enjoyable, however the highlights were definitely the 3 leopards (they'll each be posted separately).
First was the female Sefefô at Eland on 22 August at 11:05 (thanks to AstroMatt for the ID).
