Leopard sighting

I have just finished the South East Africa Explorer trip. The tour was very fantastic. We had wonderful passengers of which 2 of them were visiting Africa for the first time. South Luangwa as usual was like paradise, we saw a leopard on the night game drive there. The local game ranger told us that he has not seen leopard during the day recently. 

When we went to Kruger National Park, Jeff (second guide) and I wanted to make sure that we have to find a leopard during the day for everyone to see. Amazingly as we were doing the game drive, driving from Letaba to Satara there the male leopard was lying on its stomach on the tree trunk facing our direction, with its four legs hanging on both sides of the tree trunk. This was only 10- 15 meters from us and guesse what? It was during the day around eleven in the morning!! At one point the leopard stood up and changed its position. It showed us its back, lied down and stood up again as if someone was signaling to it to model for us. It started clinging its jaws and finally came down from the tree and started stalking the Kudu’s, oohhh! What luck!
