Late one evening, we came across a pride of lions eating a Rhino carcass.

We came across this young male leopard after following the sounds of an agitated herd of buffalo. They had discovered this young guy who took refuge in the nearest large tree

Had an awesome sighting of a civet just sitting up a tree eary one evening. Taken with a red light, hand held, came out way better than I thought that it would.

Under the very sparse shade in the Namib, we came across a pride of lions relaxing in the meagre shade they found.

One of our very first lion sightings, she was keeping a good eye on what we were up to

The smaller cats are way more engaging & difficult to find.

Lions can be boring.  You normally find lions just lying around so getting shots of them doing something is a bonus.

Heres some shots of the other cats as well.
