I don’t think we have ever had such a run of luck with leopard sightings at Selinda.

Kane our Explorers guide said that for the past month every single guest has seen at east two separate individual leopards, and some times five.  The same has gone for Selinda and Zarafa. There are three mothers with cubs seen regularly, and the highlight must be the Leopard with an article seen by Reuben.

So why are we seeing more and more each year.  We have been monitoring the antelope numbers and they have been escalating, and even doubling, which could be down to the increased amount of water in the region. In 2006 Great Plains halted all hunting he region, no leopards have been shot for some time now and this could indicate a recovery. Either way our guests are revelling in this excitement.
