There is an eerie quality in the stare of a leopard ( Panthera pardus) that can be totally unnerving. Arguably the most succesful of the big African cats, it is an opportunist par excelance. Always on a sharp look out for unsuspecting prey, it also keeps a wary vigil in order to avoid it’s aggresive carnivarous rivals, namely the lion and hyena. Nothing misses the sharp attention of the leopard and despite the fact that a body of water lay between him and us, there still was a sense of dread when he cast a long searching stare in our direction.

South Luangwa National Park in Zambia is renowned for it’s leopards and true to form, they certainly did not disappoint!
