By Will Knocker:
On sunday afternoon I was at the Masai Gate (which borders on the Silole Sanctuary) when the KWS ranger on duty – Jackson ole Kuyioni- looked over my shoulder down towards the brodge over the Empakasi River…”Do you want to see a chui?” he asked in Kiswahili
“Look up in the big acacia!” Can you see the leopard here?
The binoculars revealed the cat just 75 m away, listening to us chatting: suburban leopard!
Hopefully the leopard population in NNP is going up since two of the big cats were poisoned by a new neighbour near the Sanctuary a year or two ago….
