THE BEST MOMENT CAN BE THE WORST – On the edge of my seat in an open jeep. THERE ! A LEOPARD ! OMG he’s going to jump into the Jeep and grab me!! Driver says, “Stay calm, no screaming!” This is the excitement we signed up for. Somehow I managed to keep my mouth shut and with that, all five of us lowered our cameras and remained still and quiet. This leopard was young and frisky and came a bit too close for comfort. Once he turned and moved off we were ready for a coffee break for sure!
I have to say being on Safari is always one of my most unforgettable travel experiences. Sabi Sands was the first of several safaris we did while in South Africa and it rates up there as one my favorites.
