We had a great experience on an early morning safari when we saw a leopard going from branch to branch chasing monkeys.

The Vervet Monkey [Cercopithecus aethiops] is one of the most endearing animals for guests to see on safari, but they are usually pests around lodges where they raid kitchens and food tables.

The Monkeys main predator in Botswana is the Leopard, and the noise that follows a Leopard after it has been spotted is deafening. This is what attracted our Safari Guide to allow us to have the experience of seeing the leopard in the tree with the Monkeys.
