The below video shows a female leopard and her two young cubs walking a long the deck of private home in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park.
This was our fourth trip to the Kruger and our guide was famous videographer, Ranger Rob. He is superb at getting sightings, and finding the right place to be.
After five days of trying to find this elusive mother we found her on the deck of our lodge owner’s private dwellings. The leopard and her two young cubs decided that pacing the deck would be fun so we had to drive back and forth on the outside of the property, after all it was private land.
This video was taken from about 60 yards away in a dry riverbed. It was captured with a point and shoot camera (Canon Powershot SX 50 HS) – which has outstanding zoom capabilities.
