Big 5s

David Kabambo

Founder and Director, Peace For Conservation

“I am not ashamed to say that the leopard is my photographic subject.

I understand that the leopard is a nocturnal animal and normally hunts during the night hours. They tend to take their prey up into a tree to avoid disturbances from scavengers and other predators. It’s very rare to see this animal during the day because they are shy. Usually, they’re solitary but you can find males and females during the mating times, or when the female is accompanied by her cubs.

When you meet them, try not to run because they are very fast – you can’t compete with them in such battle. Instead, you better stand and look straight in their eyes. Perhaps you will not believe it when leopard run away from you.”
