If seeing a leopard in the wild is on your Bucket List then there is no better place to go than Sabi Sands, just next to the Kruger Park in North Eastern South Africa. In fact they pretty much guarantee leopard sightings for their guests.

We visited Sabi Sands for the first time in September 2015 and were lucky enough to see a young mother leopard with a very young cub on our wedding day. We had an incredible sighting of the mother making a kill and placing it up a tree for her and her cub. So you can imagine how excited we were when we returned in 2016 to see her cub had grown up to become a very strong looking male leopard.

Here he is in 2015… sabi-sands-game-reserve-dulini-13

And here he is now… leopard-kill-sabi-sands-south-africa-52

On both visits to the reserve we stayed at Dulini Lodge. Dulini is an absolutely magical place, probably the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. We could not recommend this place enough, Iain and Sue are truly fantastic hosts.
