It is important to always stop and appreciate the sounds around you in the bush. On a recent morning safari, my guests and I had stopped for our morning coffee when our tracker, Norman, heard impala alarm calls not too far from where we were. We decided to leave our coffee and head towards the commotion further along the drainage line.
We headed straight in the direction of the impala, and finally spotted them looking towards us. We somehow knew that there was a big predator in the immediate area.
We were not wrong…
It wasn’t long before Karula appeared. This magnificent female leopard was walking towards one of the mud wallows to have a drink. We positioned ourselves to get the best view of her, and enjoyed a great photographic opportunity.
What an amazing cat she is!
