The Leopards of Londolozi #2

Londolozi has released its second short film – The Leopards of Londolozi #2.

Jam packed with powerful emotive
scenes of Londolozi’s leopards – there are some particularly amazing shots like the leopard attacking from a tree and the one leopard chasing its prey at top speed straight past the safari vehicle. Did you realise they moved that fast ?

Check it out !

If you watch closely you will see a short image of an old leopard way up in a tree – he had just finished off some baby fish eagles in their nest and was on his way down again. Check out the full video from the sighting – as viewed by some of our safari guests while at Londolozi !

The Kalahari is an often overlooked game reserve when discussing South African reserves. Outside of the Sabi Sands, the Limpopo and Timbavati, the Madikwe game reserve and the well known eastern cape reserves, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park of which the southern Kalahari desert extends into is an excellent choice for a different safari experience.
