Guests staying at Okuti recently were desperate to see breeding herds of elephants. In response to their request, Solly arranged a picnic lunch to be packed in order to spend a full day out of camp and explore farther afield. Their day trip started well with several excellent sightings of elephant herds including a breeding herd followed by buffalo with calves and several other game species. Solly  took them along the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve, near Khwai village, an area well known in Botswana for its incredible wildlife. Here they had the extremely unusual sighting of a female leopard with a very young cub. An adult leopard is normally shy and reclusive, but this pair were unusually relaxed and allowed the guests to admire the youngster for sometime, taking some photographs before retreated slowly into the undergrowth.
