Leopard eating warthog – Pondoro Game Lodge

Had an amazing leopard sighting on the 24th of March. A young male leopard was seen on the Impalabos section in the late afternoon next to a small drainage line. As the sun was setting he got up went to a big marula tree and jumped in. He got higher than any leopard that I have seen before and disappeared from view in some very thick foliage. After about 2 minutes he appeared again, but this time with a baby warthog in his mouth. He obviously killed it earlier in the day. He then continued feeding on a lower branch with a hyena patiently waiting below for any pieces of meat dropping down from the careless feeding leopard.
