Leopard sightings around Malelane & Berg en Dal areas

Unread post by DinkyBird » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:39 pm

Berg en dal and Malelane area is regarded as one of the best areas to see the Leopard, people will think it is very difficult to see a leopard but if you are at the right place at the right time, it is easy.

We had leopard that were recorded at steilberg with 2 cubs and another one at s119 with 3 cubs this year. Recently a male leopard was spotted more than 6 times on the Malelane turn off to the ranger post by guides and field rangers, another territorial male was also spotted on the night drives and sunset drives at the reservoir by Malelane guides and Berg en dal guides.

On the morning walk I did with Peter we had a leopard with an impala ram on the knob thorn tree, we also had another leopard with an impala carcass on the matjulu loop while were heading to the walking area.

This is the new topic that I will report Leopard activities in our area, I will also post pictures if I get them but I will also encourage forumites to contribute by sending pictures as well.

Regards
Raymond Khosa

Hello Forumites

What a lovely sightings; I have come across a male leopard on the Malelane Road yesterday. I also got some pictures for you to have a look. This morning I had a leopard on the crocodile river road, it was very quick to move to the thickets.


Enjoy reading the forums

Hi forumites,

Attached a photo of a leopard sighting which our 5 year old daughter made (we're extremely proud of her :clap: ) on 12 June about 4km's from Berg-en-Dal on the S110 @ 14:15.

I had another leopard sighting the following morning at Matjulu waterhole @ 6:25 where I was lucky enough to be the only car around. :D Unfortunately, my photographic skills (while driving) dropped me on the day since I was alone in the car and the photos taken were bad. Luckily I managed to make a video clip or 2 to show the family what they missed out on.

Just returned from six nights at Berg en Dal and had an incredible week. Seven, yes seven leopard sightings and then interesting sightings such as serval and honey badger. Two of the leopards were on the Matjulu loop (possibly the same one twice) as well as the badger.

Animals at our campsite included leopard tortoise, dwarf mongoose, cane rat, genet and a handful of scorpions during Friday nights storm - obviously they were looking for dry ground.

First time staying at Berg en Dal and thoroughly enjoyed it..!
