Leopard

Africa's most common cat, the leopard, is also its most difficult to spot. True to their feline roots, leopards spend most of their days sleeping in the tree tops (which is where they also store kills). The services of a well-trained guide are invaluable if you want to spot a leopard. However, rare sightings do occur in the open, particularly in woodland-savanna mosaics. Size: Shoulder height 50cm to 75cm; length 1.6m to 2.1m, including 70cm to 1.1m tail; weight up to 90kg; male larger than female. Distribution: Widely spread throughout the region, they also persist in human-altered habitat due to their adaptability.
