Predator’s Advantage: Leopard’s Stealth and Strength in a Successful Wildebeest Takedown.

In this incredible sighting, a leopard shows its strength by taking down a wildebeest three times its size! This moment was witnessed in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Field guide Jolandie Prinsloo from GZ Adventures took these incredible photographs! Koos Kilian from Kambako Executive Lodge shared the video and story with

“My wife and I took a group of clients out on safari and, of course, everyone was keen to see elephants. So we headed to Lengau dam where we observed a lot of general game. My wife had left the area with her guests, but just as we wanted to leave, someone exclaimed, ‘There’s a lion!’ which I found confusing because predators tend to rest at midday. But when I looked over to where they pointed, I saw it was a leopard!”

“The leopard had been stalking a herd of wildebeest next to the waterhole the whole time. Seconds before the leopard charged, a guest who had been photographing the general game realized what was happening.”

“Of course, we were all on the edge of our seats, but I remained doubtful, thinking – what are the chances of this leopard being successful?”

“The leopard kept its focus on one wildebeest and took off! I got goosebumps! It took the wildebeest down, which was unbelievable when you compare the size difference. I so badly wanted my wife and her guests to see this too, but by the time they arrived, the leopard had moved deeper into the grass to cool down with its prize.”


“After our lunch break, we returned to observe the leopard enjoy its lunch. And this leopard was not at all fazed by vehicles – quite the show-off. Always be ready with a camera and be patient. Let the animals come to you! I learned this once again… Had it not been for my guest spotting it, we would not have witnessed this.”

“It’s hard to explain one’s emotions when you have witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime sighting like this…”
