Even Leopards Need a Moment

This was quite possibly the biggest highlight of our African Safari, with the lion cubs being right up there with this! To enjoy safari in this location, we chose to stay at Larsen's Camp, which sits right by the river.

Our driver was excellent at spotting the local wildlife, and before we encountered this gorgeous leopard, we had already enjoyed a number of other sightings, including an owl, gazelle, rutting impala, and so much more.  (For more photos of this day, feel free to explore our gallery!)

But this fellow...magnificent. I couldn't get enough.  He allowed us to watch him for over an hour.  I wanted to capture every moment and gave my best effort to do so, with both my senses as well as my camera.  Just amazing!
