Maribye at Rest


On a morning game drive in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, our second highlight of the drive was encountering a young male leopard called Maribye (born in March, 2020) in the eastern part of the reserve.

Maribye, which means 'of the rock' in Shangaan, was resting by a mound, and other than a film crew which had been working in the area and had located him, we had him all to ourselves.
