What a sighting!
This young male Leopard was lying on a low branch in a tree when we approached with our game drive vehicle. As soon as we were in sight he silently moved of the tree and away through the grass. He thought himself undetected when we spotted him again and watched him for while before he decided to disappear all together. Leopards are like magicians. One moment they are there and then they are gone!
An exciting sighting demonstrating to Thanda guests the capabilities of Leopards!

One of my favorite Leopard pictures, ever – a Leopard doing what it does best – disappearing!
