34 Beautiful Photos Of Africa’s Most Elusive Big Cat


August 10, 2017

It happens every single time we go on a safari. The guide will ask what we’d like to see and the chorus goes up, “A leopard!”

The elusive nature of leopards probably fuels their mystique, but it’s their sleek beauty and majestic grace that really captivates us. Nothing quite compares to the thrill of a leopard sighting and that’s why we all want to see one. Or two. Or three. If you’ve seen a leopard in the wild you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. And you’ll probably appreciate these photos even more…A leopard A leopard up close A leopard  snoozing in a tree A leopard in the savannah A leopard sits silently in a tree A leopard  at nightA leopard  watches the game vehicle A leopard  high up A leopard  with the sun behind A leopard  resting on a branch
