Exquisite yet elusive, the leopard is a firm safari favourite. Watching them up close in the wild is a deeply compelling experience that literally pierces the soul, remaining with you long after the leopard has moved off. As one of the most resourceful and adaptable predators in the wild, their lifestyles are equally intriguing. They live in many different habitats, eating whatever prey is most common in an area, and they will hunt or scavenge as necessity demands. Leopards spend the majority of the day resting in thick cover before getting active under the cover of darkness to hunt, but this routine is not strictly adhered to given their propensity for opportunism.
