Death brings Life on the African Plain
We traveled to the Kruger National Park area to witness life untethered by man. This Leopard was found at Tanda Tula Safari Camp on the Timbovati Private Nature Reserve where rangers and trackers respect and protect the animals within their boundaries. To allow people to experience the African Plains and stand in awe of life at its rawest is to teach people the immense responsibility we have for this plant and all it's creatures. According to the rangers watching this kill unfold, the baby impala was left to hide by it's mother when the leopard came upon it. In the blink of an eye a new born life came to an end, while the life of another grew stronger.
