We came upon this Leopard eating the hind quarter of an Impala at the base of a tree. Up in the tree, twenty-five feet above us, the gutted and thrashed Impala was still starring at us. The Leopard killed the Impala, gutted it and hauled it up the tree. The Impala weighed almost as much as the Leopard.
He didn’t like us watching him eat so he took his dinner and sauntered into the bush. We followed. He decided to ignore us and sat down to finish his meal. When he was done, he just sat there, resting.

That’s a beautiful picture! Leopards are one of my most favourite animals
Thanks for the kind words. This Leopard was amazing. He dragged his impala, weighing nearly as much as he did, more than twenty feet up a tree.
Leopards have amazing strength! You’re a lucky sod to have seen that!
We were lucky. It was a pretty incredible experience.
