I have been a guide for almost 10 years and love what I do. Every second being in the bush surrounded by the magnificent wonders of the wild makes my passion for nature grow even stronger. A question I get asked the most is, what my favourite animal is?
That is a very difficult question to answer. I love every aspect of nature from the tiniest insect to the mighty Elephant, from the smallest and dullest flower to the largest overbearing tree. What about the fish that swims around the muddy waters or a bird that flies among the clouds gracing us with its beautiful call. They all intrigue me in one way or another. But one animal that gets me the most excited though is Leopard. In particular, tracking a Leopard.
It’s not just about picking up on tracks but also understanding its behaviour as well as habitat and hunting patterns and terrain they prefer most. It’s probably because they are the most elusive cats around and you will only find them if they allow you to find them. Able to track down a Leopard is truly a great feeling and once spotting them, watching them in their natural environment is just breath-taking.
