Day Or Night, Leopard's Roam Freely In Masai Mara

Undoubtedly, the leopard is one of the most secretive and successful of all the predators you will find on Safari in Kenya. In most of the Kenyan national parks, having a close and clear encounter with this spectacular big cat is a true blessing sent directly from the heavens. 

Tsavo West National Park in the southern circuit of Kenya, is well known for its leopard sightings and they usually grace the photographer with a few good minutes during dawn or dusk game drives before they wander along on their way.
The leopards of Masai Mara on the other hand seem to be of a different breed altogether. Breaking their self imposed species code, Mara leopards can be spotted roaming the plains freely or resting up a tree right by the road side at any odd hour of the day. Their remarkable level of comfort and self confidence makes the Masai Mara a real treat for both wildlife photographers and holiday makers alike. Looking at our own wildlife statistics for maasai mara safaris in 2014-15, we have averaged a cool 70% success rate in spotting them!
