@kittykat23uk - Many thanks for the added details about your Mofhenyi sighting. :thumbs_up:

Your second leopard you saw was Namabies - a 3 year old female. Again, thanks for all the details. I am sure this sighting turned a miserable day into an amazing one. :wink:

We had the pleasure to see Mofhenyi on the 28th of October, three kilometers north of Gemsbokplein at 14H12.

I first thought the leopard was dead because it was laying down in such a strange position plus it was midday in the summer.

Mofhenyi 28/10/2017

Only after taking the first photo did we see it was breathing. Later changed position, which might have been a bit more comfortable!

Gorgeous sighting LQ! Rather a sleeping leopard than a dead one! ;)
Thanks for posting and reporting to the project! :gflower:
