Recently we had a very interesting, rainy afternoon filled with big cats and a warthog. Nearing the end of the afternoon game drive in the Kruger National Park, Outlook Safaris guide, FJ, and his guests spotted two leopards next to the road.
They initially thought it to be a mother and cub but later realised it was a mating pair. As they where admiring these magnificent animals (which they had all to themselves) a guest sitting in the back of the vehicle suddenly noticed three lions behind the vehicle.
These three youngsters were systematically checking the drainage pipes next to the road for a snack. As the leopards disappeared into the foliage, FJ, followed the lions.
There was a sudden spout of activity as an unsuspecting warthog flew out of a pipe, quickly pursued by the three musketeers. He did not get very far and it took the lions about 15 minutes to kill him as he put up a brave fight.
The ruckus actually brought the leopards back, whom where very curios and watched the spectacle from about 30 metres away.
