Leopard tracking turned into a 5-hour marathon adventure. Gideon, a fabulous guide, was trying to pick up signals from any of multiple free-roaming, radio-collared leopards. After 2 flat tires in mountainous, rocky terrain, we were rewarded with a sighting of this beautiful male leopard. We were actually tracking his mother and found him as a bonus!
