... for them in the fading light of our first day and we weren’t to be disappointed. Two young leopard cubs about a year old were sitting in two separate spots. One gnawing on the body of a recently killed impala, while the other rested under the cooling night sky under a tree.

... off the lights to give us an idea of ten bush in the dark. It was fascinating. Without light you were so much more aware of sound - frogs, cicadas, fireflies and other insects. Truly an African night. There are three cats found in the Western Shores - serval, spotted genet and leopard. The guy with the left hand light spotted a serval with its long ears lying in the grass and Theo pointed out twin spirited genets in ...
