The mighty leopard
Photographs leopards in South Africa
With a bit of luck, a leopard may reveal itself, and if they choose to do so it is always a great privilege to be in their company. I love how they wear their pale yellow fur, adorned with beautiful dark spots grouped into rosettes, each pattern as unique as the individual cat. The leopard is muscular, slender, nearly 2 metres in length and stands between 60 and 70cm tall, making it one of the most powerful of large cats. I was fortunate enough to see leopards when I stayed in the Sabi Sands and when on Safari in the Kruger National Park.
