It was dark when we drove through the ebony forest towards our camp. Suddenly the warning bark of a lone baboon indicated a leopard was close at hand. Peering through the darkness, we could make out a leopard dragging a large impala up the trunk towards a fork in the tree. It was a struggle for the predator and twice both fell to the ground before the exhausted leopard succeeded in securing its kill.
