As you can see by Muhammad's post above , Masego is looking better these days. :dance: She seems to be still moving north - heard tell that she was seen at Dalkeith on the 23rd and Craig Lockhardt on the 24th. Two leopards have also been seen together - perhaps Itumeleng and Masego ?

@hilda - Many thanks for posting. :thumbs_up:

We returned from KTP last week. This was our "leopard" visit. Never in our 20+ visits have we been this fortunate with leopard sightings.

We believe it to be Masego, we saw her 3 times, each a special sighting.

We saw her the first time on 14/4 when she chased an african wild cat (unsuccessfully). This was between 13de and 14de on the Auoub river. I was very fortunate to capture this event.

In my previous post, the photos submitted of her were taken on 19/4 and 22/4. By this time, 22/4, she had almost reached Dalkeith waterhole.
She was going from tree to tree, trying to flush out prey in the tree and dense undergrowth. The photo seen on Facebook was the successful downing of a cape fox, between 14de and Dalkeith

Hi TonyT,
Great photos of a beautiful Leopard. You've been to KTP 20 times? Nineteen more and I'll have caught up to you. :)
