Defend Truth


I have a picture for you! 24 October – 30 October 2021

Sometimes we are fortunate to have moments like these – moments that stay etched in memory for a very long time. This photograph of the Porcupine Female Leopard was taken at Lion Sands Tinga & Narina in the Kruger National Park. It was a truly unforgettable experience the guides put us in just the right position to be able to capture this portrait – she is one of the dominant females that are seen fairly regularly at @lionsandsgamereserve.
