Leopard Lookout
Chobe National Park, Botswana

This image almost didn't happen. Several vehicles were tracking this leopard through Chobe, and when it appeared that he would finally cross the road, it seemed like every Land Rover in the park converged on this one spot. We were near the edge of the traffic jam, so I figured the photo op was gone...he'd cross the road nowhere near us and disappear into the bush. Yes, he did cross the road, but I was never so happy to be wrong. Instead of disappearing into the bush, he climbed into this tree by the side of the road, probably not more than 35 feet from where I was. By the time we left, he showed no signs of getting ready to leave.

The exposure was a bit tricky, and I didn't like how the sky appeared in the original image, so I dropped in a dark background that gives it an extra pop.

Friendly staff, tidy rooms and really close to the main CBD. Beware the car park is really tiny and can be hard to drive in if you have a larger vehicle.
