The BEST leopard story EVER!!!
When your manageress phones you at 9.45 pm and sounds like she has just run a race you know something serious is up! Turns out that TJ one of our clients in camp, as well as our security guard Ben were walking down from the lodges to the dining room. TJ thought he could see a dog right outside the dining area. He pointed it out to Ben who then informed him "that is no dog, that's a leopard, its got spots." The young leopard at this point decided enough was enough and headed up the stairs toward the kitchen, and then hung a right into our dining area aptly named the "The Leopards Lair" !! Ben in his wisdom ran and closed the door, while our manageress Lin unknowingly entered the same room from another door. She was then confronted by a scared leopard trying to escape, and took cover behind the curio stand! She yelled at Ben to open the door, who then entered the room with TJ to rescue Lin, at which point the leopard finally made its escape through the open lounge door!! Luckily nobody was hurt, but really what an incredible story, which is totally uncharacteristic of Mr Spots!! The young leopard was then seen nonchalantly strolling along past our natural rock pool....
