African Safari – Serengeti – Morning Drive – Leopard sighting

For those who are following this series of blogs, the last blog entry for the morning drive ended with the question: Lunch? or Leopard?

Tough question 🙂 but unanimous answer. Lunch could wait! and unless they were in the mouth of a leopard, birds could wait! Without further delay, we were on our way, at high speed (over rough road), to see the reported leopard!

When we arrived, along with a number of safari vans, the leopard was visible at quite some distance. In leopard fashion, its fresh kill had been hauled up the trunk of the tree and lodged in a notch for later dining. The following photographs were taken with 400mm and 500mm equivalent lens combinations and then cropped and sharpened in PPing.
