We had quite a few leopard sightings during the month and as most people know any sighting of a leopard is usually a highlight. We saw 2 leopard cubs on the 26th of December on Impalabos East that provided us with some very good photo opportunities. A young male leopard, the son of Manana, was also seen regularly between Main camp and Bateleur Camp.

A female cheetah with 2 cubs were also seen on the 2nd and 16th of December.

I had the privilege to see a caracal drinking at Nyari dam during the afternoon drive on 29th. They are rare and usually very shy meaning that we only get fleeting glimpses of them as they disappear through the undergrowth.

Other sightings of lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo were good without being spectacular.
