Kaeng Krachan Leopard Sighting

Kaeng Krachan Leopard

I decided to spend a few days down at Kaeng Krachan before it shuts next week for the rainy season, we had a great time including one of the most amazing leopard experiences of my life. This male allowed us to view him for about

20 minutes whilst he slinked in and out of the undergrowth curiously looking at my parked car.

 

 

 

A truly unforgetable trip and I am truly thankful that we were this lucky to see this gorgeous feline alive and well in its natural environment. I really never thought I would ever see, let alone photograph the leopard in Thailand. It just goes to show there is no replacement for time spent in the forest and most of all luck!!
