So the most illusive of the big five for us was the leopard. Yet we had two leopard spottings. Ha! Spottings…get it? Whew. ANYWAY, the first was up in a tree in Madikwe. You can just make out the spotted backside. The rest was hidden.
The second time we were on a boat on the Chobe River in Botswana. And then we saw this elephant carcas. And look…a leopard was getting a snack of elephant. Kind of gross, but neat to see.
Both times we were super far away. I guess leopards around these parts are very shy…so you don’t get a chance to get all that close very often. We were just lucky to even see these incredible creatures!
