Head Scout’s daily report
Reporting date: 30.09.2011
While on an afternoon patrol within the conservancy, our Game Scouts spotted two Leopards: a mother and her one cub of about four months. It was drizzling and the two leopards took cover under the croton bushes waiting for the rain to stop. The scouts then informed Japhet who was on an Afternoon Game Drive with his two guests. When Japhet arrived at the scene, the two leopards had left but instead a male leopard was walking in the same area. It is probable that the three were together but the scouts managed to see only the two and Japhet was lucky to find the third. Powerful, graceful and arguably one of the most beautiful of all the large cats, the elusive leopard is a master of stealth and survival.
