Notes

Early November is the photographically ideal time to visit the Serengeti. The beginning of the "small rains" means the sky is clear in the morning, then dramatically clouds up in the mid afternoon, with the expectation of a brief shower or two. Typically the sky clears again in the later afternoon. The sky is sparkling clear after the brief rain.

Description

We watched this mother leopard and her three cubs for three successive days in November, 2018. She had killed and stashed a wildebeest in a nearby tree for her cubs, and remained near by while the kill was consumed. The rock is extremely close by to the camp where we stayed. One of the camp tents is visible in the background. It gave us a great opportunity to spend time with the leopard and her cubs, who are very habituated to the presence of vehicles.
