Kruger National Park‘s leopards are notoriously difficult to spot, with many a family spending an entire safari holiday trying to track them down. As nocturnal hunters they are rarely seen out and about during the day, and with the Kruger’s huge size, an encounter is all that more unlikely. However, one guide has developed a knack for finding and photographing these elusive cats. 

The following photos were taken by our guide Mario Paul, whilst on game drives with guests for Vula Tours. Mario is very passionate about his career as a nature guide and this passion has helped him to track down and produce some truly stunning sightings of leopards throughout Kruger.
