Exeter River Lodge is situated within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, renowned for having the best Big Five game-viewing in South Africa, if not the world.The Reserve is famous for its incredible leopard sightings. The Sabi Sand leopards have grown accustomed to safari vehicles, thereby permitting close up sightings and extraordinary photographic opportunities.
After spending three hours tracking this female who somehow managed to evade us, we found her on the way back to the lodge, on a termite mound right next to the road! Then she moved off up a tree, giving us a real show for almost an hour which we spent mostly alone. What a special Christmas treat!
