Description: A night to be remembered: lightening storm, rain, no stars for guidance, spiders every where, three individual leopard sightings. The first one (pictured) we worked so hard for - she kept eluding us, but after an hour, we did find her and I was able to snap some truly horrible photos, simply proof that I had spotted one. On the way back, down a wide open 4x4 track, a different leopard crossed our path… this after getting lost in the thick bush and having to push the landie off of a downed tree. We were in disbelief… how could this sighting be so easy after the effort we put into the first?
