Very rare leopard on our home reserve

A very rare Strawberry Leopard captured on camera trap by Tara Pirie from our leopard research team.
Of-course we've been aware of Black Leopards in our area for many years, but the presence of Strawberry Leopards was previously only rumoured, however we now have proof. Making this a very rare sighting.
This picture was taken at our home reserve (Thaba Tholo wilderness reserve), which is the base for most of our South African safaris.
Be there....You can meet and be involved with our research team as part of our award winning safaris, or volunteer to join our research team. Just follow the South Africa tab on our website
