This last week on our full day Kruger Safari we were lucky enough to witness a beautiful sighting of a mother leopard and her cub feasting on a fresh Impala kill.

Leopards have a reputation of being difficult to spot due to their amazing camouflage and nocturnal nature. Unlike lions, leopards are solitary mammals which means they live alone. The only exception to this is if a male and a female come together to mate, or a mother who is raising young.

Leopards are incredible climbers and are exceptionally strong. They are known to carry their kills up a tree. This is to prevent any other predator or scavengers such as a lion or hyena from stealing their kill.
