Photos of leopards and black rhinos seem to dominate our Facebook and blog pages as sightings of these elusive animals escalated during the last few months. This makes one forget that there are still other animals around. Lions, when active, are amazing animals and the raw emotion when coming across these powerful animals cannot be […]
Mark, Pondoro guide, took this fantastic video of Chavalutu, young territorial male, feeding on an impala nearly right on top of his car today. Well done Mark, you cannot get closer to a leopard than this.

Mark took this video of 2 rock monitors rudely interrupted by lions during their mating session on the 11th of October 2011.
We found the male leopard again on the afternoon safari at Jiga-Jiga road. He was still at the kill and we were lucky enough to find him lying on a termite mound.
