Description: Leopard hiding in the thick bush up a very well disguised tree.

Story from behind the lens: On an evening drive we hoped to find a leopard. Our guide Wison had spotted a kill in a tree quite some way away and knew there would be a leopard close by. We sat for a while and searched around the tree with the kill and eventually found this beautiful leopard. Wilson had spotted this leopard on a number of occasions but she had no name so when we found her, thanks to our amazing guide we named her after him. We gave her the name Nampaso which has stuck and is being used today by tourists.
