Rul, one of our guides, heard jackal give alarm calls during sundowner stop on the 15th of July 2015. Suspecting that it might be for a leopard he quickly herded the guests back into the safari cruiser and raced over to where he last heard the jackal calling. A female leopard was quickly caught in the gaze of the searching spotlight. Everyone was then alerted to the excited sounds of hyenas nearby where they were feeding on an impala stole from the leopard before she could host it into the safety of a tree. This a great example of why Pondoro only employ guides and trackers with more than 10 years of practical experience in the wild. Anyone can stumble upon animals standing on the road or respond to a call on the 2 way radio, but only a select few can listen and understand the language of the bush in order to enhance the safari experience for guests.
