Tiyani on a Mission


When we encountered female leopard Tiyani on our first game drive in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, she was decidedly on a mission, searching for something.  She was constantly on the move.

Occasionally, Tiyani would stop to survey her surroundings.  This is one of the rare moments in which she stayed still in a relatively open area, and I was able to capture this image of her in the warm afternoon light.
