“We have had guests from the United States staying at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Camp in the Mara Triangle. On a private afternoon game drive with guests and our guide, Oscar Taiwa, Mike and Suzie Moll seemed to enjoy the bush and animal sightings. We came to an area where we encountered a leopard that seemed curious about something in the grass. Knowing that the leopard might be preparing for the hunt, the guide stopped the vehicle and we watched for a while. Between the bushes – the hidden creature has appeared. We realized that this leopard was interested in a HUGE African rock python!

“Shortly after spotting the python, a battle broke out between these two amazing animals. At the beginning, it was a feeling of surprise for everyone because this kind of sighting is so rare! For a moment it looked like the leopard had lost the battle when the python started wrapping its rings around the leopard in an attempt to choke it. But with miraculous agility, the leopard managed to break free! He jumped out of reach, biting and scratching the python. Each of these creatures met the other’s fierce battle strategy to survive, but they knew there would be only one ultimate survivor.

“In the end, the python was defeated with numerous puncture wounds on its body, especially on its head. The leopard also had wounds with an obvious injury to its right front paw. It was clear to see then. that he was limping away from the stage. I had never experienced such an encounter before and it was also a first for our guide Oscar!”
