Leopard strolls through Sabi Sands lodge

Posted by Kyro Mitchell on 1 September 2020

Leopards are known to be quite secluded and solitary animals, with most encounters being nothing more than a quick glimpse. One leopard however decided to pay a surprise visit to Singita Ebony Lodge in Sabi Sands Game Reserve in broad daylight.

In the video, an employee can be seen curiously looking at something rustling in the bushes before an adult leopard casually strolls up a set of stairs, as if it were a regular patron at the facility. The leopard then moves towards Reg Calmeyer, the person filming the encounter before making its away up another set of stairs and disappearing into the surrounding foliage.

Take a look at the once-in-a-lifetime encounter below:


Despite being one of the most solitary species of big cats, leopards are actually the most widely distributed big cat in Africa, according to Africa Geographic . Their habitat ranges from desert areas to equatorial forests, mountains and even coastlines. Their wide range of habitat also plays a role in their diet. In regions of southern Africa, 80% of their diet consists of rock hyrax, while leopards in Kalahari Desert primarily feast on bat-eared fox’s.
