We started the day searching for elephants, which were rather obliging, and several herds came out to pose for photographs. We also found a few old male buffalos spread out along the river, as well as a young hyena on the move. The day however belonged to the leopards, with 4 different leopard sightings! The first leopard was going about his business until he ran into 3 hyenas that were finishing up a nyala kill. The second was attempting to get her kill back from the third leopard, who was feeding in a tree above a hyena patiently waiting for any falling titbits, and the last leopard for the day was out hunting some impala! There was a lot to photograph, but we managed. This was yet another brilliant day on safari.
