Leopards galore

Enough about the magnificent Cederberg for the meantime. Currently I am in The Timbavati and my adventures here warrant some stories too. So while we are on the subject of Leopards . . .

I am mostly confined to camp (order brand viagra

ni.com”>www.umlani.com) and game vieiwing is not high on my list of priorities or expectations but a few days ago I had to drive to a neighboring camp on an administrative errand. It was 14h00 and hot and I was not expecting to see much. As I was crossing the Hlaralumi River I noticed a small animal struggling through the grass on the opposite side of the river. My mind was battling to make an identification because size and shape did not correspond with anything logical. Then I realized that it was a leopard cub. Its mother had concealed herself at the sound of my approaching vehicle but in its inexperience the baby was struggling through the grass trying to find its mom. She soon stood up and led the way across the river bed with the cub trailing behind and struggling to catch-up. I suddenly realized that I had a camera in my pocket and managed to get a few photos before they disappeared into the bush.
