I was up in the Northern Sector of the park over the weekend and we found this large male lion drinking in a gully. He wasn't very comfortable around us and quickly moved up the bank and away from the water, but he did stand for an identification shot.

It was well before sunrise so the light was very poor, but as he moved through the trees, we could see the remains of an old scar which identified him as 'Limpy', a male who'd sustained a nasty gash on his front leg. There wasn't much sign of the limp anymore!

At the other end of the day, as the light was fading fast, we found a large male leopard padding through the shrubs at the edge of the river.
