As Tanda Tula guests were heading for their Sundowners and snacks on afternoon game drive, they watched this young leopard have his evening appetizer. Normally the leopard has to stalk his prey, but an inattentive mongoose walked right by, and was too tempting to let pass. Hardly enough to satisfy a leopard, but enough to get him through the night.
We caught up with him again the next morning when our lucky leopard hit the jackpot; he came across a giraffe kill! He seemed overwhelmed by the bounty, not knowing where to start. There was so much meat, he didn’t even mind sharing with the hyena.
