We saw this female leopard hiding in thick scrub. There had to be 25 vehicles waiting for her to come out. One by one they left, and our keen guide had his eye on her and said we should wait. When everyone gave up and left after about 90 minutes, she finally came out and walked about 10 minutes in the open to get to a lone tree where she had her kill from the night before well hidden in the branches. She posed for us and then came down the tree with her food and dragged it back to the scrub we first saw her where she had hidden 2 small cubs. We did not get a good glimpse of them, but she provided us with an amazing morning with her. It pays to sit and wait.
