Shadow Part II – The Lesholoago Leopard – Kgalagadi Trip February 2018
The Lesholoago campsite is said to be part of the naughty lion pride territory. We carefully place our camp outside of the vegetated bushy area and nearer to the pan.
While we sit at the campfire enjoying the sunset, I feel something looking at me, turn around and see a shadow walking along behind the nearest tree. I’m telling hubby – I’ve seen a cat, but it wasn’t a lion!
With the stories about the naughty lion pride in mind and not being 100% sure what I saw earlier on, we move into our car and enjoy a video. Again I see a shadow along with the bonnet, and then gee, it’s really a leopard. Not even 2 meters away from us, it enjoys rolling over a wet patch on the ground. It walks around, showing this is clearly leopard territory. I manage to take a few pictures than enjoy watching the scenery.
Leopard L 55, that we saw at night at our campsite in February 2018 at the Lesoloagho Pan at the Mabua side was named SERITI in June 2018, meaning Shadow, by the Kgalagadi Leopard ProjectContact us here
