The national parks are big, spread over hundreds of square kilo meters but our expert (professional and experienced) guides, who grew up near the parks and they have spent good part of their lives inside their respective leopards’ reserves know exactly where to go and what to look for. They know these big cats and also know their territory, family history and behavior very well. We also keep an eye on where a kill has been made by the leopards, the chances are leopard will return to the kill. After meal, the big cats head for waterholes, we know these spots very well. In the summer months, the cat cools itself in the water, we keep regular an eye on these waterholes.
