In Botswana, your best chance of spotting a leopard is in the Moremi Game Reserve, where wetlands of the Okavango Delta meet dry lands. We spend three nights in the reserve here on our Okavango Adventure, with a number of game drives into the park’s floodplains. This area is also very popular with twitchers, with kingfisher, bee-eater, stork, egret and fish eagle all regularly spotted here.
The Serengeti is also a good place for spotting leopard, which is in fact Africa’s most prolific Big Cat. The tip is to follow the riverline and look among the trees, rather than on the ground.
