Leopard climbs a tree to reach its prey – Maasai Mara 2023

Leopard climbs a tree to reach its prey. Monkeys alarm calling suggested we were near a Leopard in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. We found this lovely female cat hiding in the long grass. We could see its prey in a nearby tree. So we positioned ourselves in what we hoped would be the perfect spot should she decide to climb the tree to reach its prey. After a long wait our patience was rewarded. She effortlessly climbed an almost vertical tree trunk and started to feast on her kill. She then did a bit of grooming, looked around and then came down the tree and headed off in the dense undergrowth.
