9 August 2016 - The leopards continue to thrill

Leopard kill

Many visitors come to Kruger Park and never get to see a leopard. The spin-off of the terrible drought we have been experiencing for the last two years is that the bush has thinned out making sightings much easier. In addition many of the traditional prey are weakened by the lack of grazing making them an easy catch. Our guests have been very lucky over the past few weeks with almost daily sightings of the elusive big cat. Yesterday they experienced nature at its cruelest with a leopard catching an impala in front of the game vehicle and dragging it off into the bush. Some awesome pics were taken and they can be seen on our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/NeedlesLodge/
