I recently returned from a three week photo adventure in South Africa. The highlight (once again) was a visit to the Mala Mala Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands. Mala Mala is home to wild animals (which can wander in and out from Kruger National Park and other neighboring reserves), but it's location on private property allows for greater access to the wildlife.
Especially leopards. We saw 11 different leopards in four days, including this 4-5 month old cub, which was hanging out alone in this tree while mom was out hunting. We had such great success with leopards on this trip that I've put together a 2013 Leopard calendar. This will be December's image.
