Nkateko Leopard Cub

By Patrick O’Brien on February 13, 2009

A sequence of images as Nkateko leopardess decends from a tree.

Kings Camp’s hottest leopard cub, Nkatheko, was found during an afternoon drive. What made this an interesting sighting was that she lay on top of a dead old tree. This was a perfect photographic opportunity and as would be I had a professional photographer and writer on my vehicle.

  1. She looks very graceful, indeed. Do tell Patrick, who did the photographer and writer represent? Will you and/or Kings be mentioned?
