There had been leopard tracks called in from various locations not to far from the camp

I waited to hear who was following which tracks and where they were heading and decided to check up on tracks of a young male we had just found. Our set cut through a drainage line which we drove around, heading east onto the clearing west of camp.
When not one but two leopard flashed into the bush, we drove back into them after putting Freeman in the car. I was amazed to see Karulaís two boys hanging out together.
The last time I had seen them together was close to two months ago and that was under great rivalry over a steenbok kill. No sooner had we stopped a respectful distance from them when they decided to head toward the donga as clearly it was each others company they wanted and not ours.
We waited till we lost visual and moved to the edge of the drainage line to observe their behavior which seemed to be jovial at being reunited.
Due to the vegetation it was difficult to see them all of the time, but was clear from who ever was in views, body language, there were games on the go.
After messing around with each other for a good forty minutes or so and a short rest, they drifted apart once again, it is uncommon but not unique that this kind of post natal bonding goes on, just another fascinating peek into the mind of this amazing specie.
