In February 2006 a leopardess patrolled her territory in the Serengeti National Park for more than one week along the tracks giving us the pleasure of close encounters. In this occasion all cars had just left because they had to be on time at the lodges. Luckily we could stay a little bit longer. She left her tree, slowly walked to our car and sat down! Only five metres away, looking straight at us, her face and eyes never to be forgotten!
