Leopard in camp!!

Posted on February 7, 2010

Hi there,

We have arrived back in cold , misty and wet Yorkshire.

Wow what a fab time we had with you all at Leopards Hill.One of the highlights was when Tom , Bente , Frankie , Stephen and I were having a quiet lunch when the mother leopard decided to stroll round the decking and visit us ! Beautiful but a little scary when Frankie and Stephen realised they were viewing her at a distance of about a metre in an area where there was no glass!!!!! Lunch was never the same after that !

So many memories – like when Frankie and Adam entertained us on our final evening with some show songs- a magic moment !

Hope you had a good Birthday Gary !

Best wishes

  1. Wow, if this isn’t an experience of the sublime: beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Are her cubs still keeping Duncan out of the gym?

    Note to self: Must get back to Leopard Hills.

    Thanks for sharing these.

  2. Great pictures! Thanks Robina. We have really been having an exciting time.
    Frankie and Adam’s performance was brilliant- keep watching the video clip.
    Look forward to welcoming you back to the lodge one day soon!!

    Ann- Hlaba Nkunzi has moved her cub/s(??) to the cave which is situated under the Leopard Hills Kitchen.

  3. Woow!! What an awesome experience, although I bet it took your breath away! It’s impressive that you had the presence of mind to take photos, given the proximity.
    Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. Happy Birthday Gary
