A Leopard in trees – Maasai Mara 2022

A Leopard in trees. It was early morning in Kenya’s Maasai Mara when we found this lovely female leopard relaxing in a tree. Our dreams came true when she decided to climb down the tree and move off. We tracked her for some time as she crossed some open ground taking in a drink on the way. It seems she was heading for her favourite tree and to our delight she climbed the tree with ease. As we watched we were astonished to she her jump effortlessly from one branch to another. She then settled down and would likely spend the rest of the day in the shade of the tree’s canopy. There is nothing quite like watching a Leopard in trees where they are completely at home.
