    So here are a few shots of 2 different leopards we spotted on our recent safari. I've never seen a leopard in the wild before, and we saw 5 different leopards on our 6 game drives last month. Was amazing. Our 1st leopard sighting was early evening (2 busy mating!). Absolutely amazing experience.

    The 1st three shots was a youngish female (around 2 years). It was extremely hot, and we observerd her trying to catch a rabbit. She looked quite peeved that we were following her.

    The 4th we found after seeing the hyenas. It was quite late, and she was not budging from her 'hiding place'.
