Illuminated Rosettes

It is one of the most incredible sightings to see a Leopard crossing the road just when one is leaving the Thanda Safari Lodge for the morning game drive.

The beautiful soft morning light illuminates the rosettes on the Leopard’s pelt as all the photographer’s on the vehicle hurry to get a good shot before this elusive cat disappears into the thick bush.
