Leopard of the Night
A magical sighting of Makepisi male leopard at night on our first night of our African safari adventure in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa.
As the light fell, Petros, our tracker, brought out the spotlight so we could continue to view and photograph Makepisi as the sun set over a beautiful African savannah landscape in Mpumalanga province.
We saw Makepisi twice during the trip, and he is a special leopard we will always remember.
I also shot video footage of Makepisi.
