Last night the camp was visited by at least one but possibly two leopards. A big male (most probably Bow) was seen bounding past the staff camp at 9.45pm.
The managers then woke bolt upright sometime later listening to heavy clawed paws walking across their deck ten feet in front of their bed.
Next piece of excitement came when two guests in our honeymoon tent were jolted from sleep and listened amazed but wide eyed to half an hour’s worth of guttural deep-bass growling right beside their deck in the bend of the river.
Either it was one leopard who was being threatened by something even bigger than he was, or there were two lovebirds going through their mating dance. Our fingers are crossed for more leopard cubs in this neck of the woods : )
