I don’t want to call this a “best sighting” because it feels like I am discounting so many other amazing moments in the bush.  So I will say instead that this was a truly special sighting, made all the more memorable by how genuinely excited my ranger was to get to experience this moment.

On our last morning game drive, we decided to head out to the area where this leopard was last seen, in the hopes of seeing her, or even better, her with her 2-1/2 week old cubs.  I never imagined we’d find her transporting one of the cubs to a new den site, and that we would have close to an hour to watch her and the little ones.

I’ve posted a few more photos from this encounter so far, you can find them here if you’d like.
