After many years of guiding in the bush, this is by far one of the best sightings I have ever experienced! Three adult leopards came together and acted just like a pride of lions.
Firstly, a young female leopard killed a crowned crane and just as she was about to start feeding, a large male arrived on the scene and stole the kill away. The female casually stepped aside and observed with a certain amount of curiosity.
And if that wasn't interesting enough, a second adult male appeared and waited in line, watching the other male feed. The scene had built up to a large male feeding with two other leopards sitting closely together waiting for their turn to feed - solitary animals behaving like a pride of lion.
The sighting took place between Musanza Camp and Busanga Bush Camp.
