Black Leopard relaxes in the shade – Laikipia, Kenya 2023

Black Leopard (black panther) relaxes in the shade. It was a very warm afternoon near Laikipa Wilderness Camp, Kenya when we found Giza, a stunning black leopard (black panther) relaxing deep in the undergrowth. Giza, which in Swahili means “darkness” is a most appropriate name for a black leopard. She was to stay in this location for many hours. Filming was a challenge given the harsh light and very pale grasses which surrounded Giza. Still she reward us with some very nice action. A very pleasing encounter.
