Today my “ office” did not dissapoint. I set out early as i have been doing to look for zawadi the leopard since i did not see her or the other leopared by the Mara river yesterday. Today i got to the leopard gorge at 7.00am sharp. I was only focused on the leopard. I even had to painfully ignore a perfect sunrise with a lone Boscia tree and a giraffe(the typical African horizon photo)
I arrived at the same time as my friends Jonathan Scott and Angie. We have all been attracted to this spot by Zawadi. When with Jonatahn, we keep talking about the good old days, when the leopard gorge was the place to be if you wanted to see a leopard. This morning we spent about two hours with her, as she posed on the rocks, walk around and play with the cub. i may not have taken any good shot, but i enjoyed more just sitting to watch. When she left the cub, we thought she had gone to hunt so we did not want to disrupt and so we left the gorge, to go and look for other animals, then ended up at the camp for lunch.
When i went out again later, i wanted to look for Olive, the leopard to show my guest. I found lions, girrafes etc, and just whne i was going back to camp, i found Olive and bahati. What a day!. The two leopards entertained us fro sometimes playing around before wandering around. At some point bahati jumped on some guinea fowls, missing one by a whisker. I went back to camp very happy. Surely my “office” can never dissapoint.
