Welcome to another volume of week in the bush. This week I have decided to do the week in the bush in black and white due to the overcast conditions.

For the last few months we have watched with amazement at the growth of one of my new favourite leopards.

Individuals that us as Guides on the reserve get to know intimately and of course, each will have their favorites.
