Description:

This camera was set up outside my hut. I was hoping to get a genet or a bush baby and I got this leopard. It is literally two feet fro the exterior wall of my hut. I could not believe it when I saw it. I have dutch doors and only close the top when it rains. To think that that leopard has never leaped in while I was sleeping.

I always knew there was one around, but to see was really special.

Description:

My friend Elmarie and me went for a walk on New Years Day at Kirstenbosch and saw a lynx on the path going up to the Contour Path. Its the first time I have ever seen one. It was totally unbothered by us, and kept walking at a slow pace about twenty yards ahead of us for several minutes, before going off into the undergrowth. The pic was taken with Elmarie's i-phone. Not Bad for a pic taken in deep shade.
