More Africa: The Leopard Haven
Shot on Location:
Mala Mala and Mashatu Game Reserves, South Africa/Botswana in 2009 with the Canon 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 500mm f/4 and 70-200/2.8.
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to Krueger Park in South Africa, is famous for its leopard sightings. Mala Mala Camp is located within Sabi Sands and It's where I first saw the Kikilezi female. It was awesome watching Kiki interact with her two year old cub, knowing that the cub would be leaving Mom shortly.
I was lucky to observe Kiki on 5 more camp visits. She continues to be the matriach at Mala Mala Game Reserve and good news - she recently had twins in May 2016.
