Makepisi by Night


This is Makepisi, a male leopard who inhabits the Timbavati region of Greater Kruger National Park.  He was the first leopard we saw on a magical four-day safari in Motswari Private Game Reserve.

Makepisi was sitting on a termite mound, and as the light fell, we continued to observe and photograph him, while he sat only several metres away from us.

I also shot video footage of Makepisi.
