It does not happen often that you will find 2 of the Big 5 animals together in one sightings, but Ranger Rul took this video of a young male leopard (Pondoro madoda) and 2 white rhinos at a waterhole on the 31st of January 2016. Rul was busy watching white rhinos drinking when the leopard appeared to quench his thirst. He must have had a kill not too far away as he had a full belly and were seen several times over a few days in the area until the territorial male Chavaluthu found him and chased him away. We never found the kill. This young male is fast becoming a regular sighting during safari drives and we are looking forward to many more.
