Rare sighting of leopard taking down impala

It is not often you manage to see a leopard stalking its prey and taking it down.


A video shared by Meegan Matthee shows a leopard concluding it’s hunt near the Berg en Dal rest camp in Kruger National Park.

In the video, you see the leopard slink forward and stealthily approach a group of resting impala.

The leopard makes it into striking distance without alerting the impala, and then two of the impala lock horns, giving the leopard a chance.

The leopard lunges at the impala closest to it and the predator latches onto its neck, securing its dinner.

People loved the video and commented: “What a capture, both, for the leopard and the camera. And not to mention, the patience on both accounts. One of the best wild videos I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing.”
