Leopard Number 5


Lake Mburo 071

With all the busy activities of the last month, we failed to post a photo of one of the highlights on our trip to Lake Mburo to celebrate our anniversary.  We joke about the ‘rent-a-leopard’ service they provide, as we seem to see leopards there quite often and this time just before dusk on one of our drives we were fortunate enough to spot one actually sitting in the middle of the road right in front of us.  This is the fifth leopard we have spotted (no pun intended!) in Lake Mburo National Park.  They are really amazing creatures—fearless, stealthy, beautifully marked and very agile.  Moments after this one stared us down, it sprang like lightning into the bush and disappeared.
