“Pic of the Week”. November 16, 2012 — Leopard resting in tree, Okavango Delta, Botswana

November 16, 2012

I enjoy all my travels but there’s something truly extraordinary about going on safari in Africa.  The opportunity to see large numbers and a huge diversity of animals is unparalleled and completely captivates me.  The best game viewing opportunities are, in my experience, available at private concessions as the drivers and guides are not limited to traveling on roads and can provide close viewing of the animals.

Such was the case with this leopard in Sandibe, a private concession in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.  Our game spotter saw her at a great distance.  We drove to within 20 meters of her and saw this beauty resting on a branch, taking a nap.  The photo captures her the moment she wakes.  She was the most beautiful wild animal I’ve ever seen!
