    Jacques at HartzView Safaris works with an operator in Zimbabwe for clients wishing to book free range dangerous game safaris. The area is in southern Zimbabwe in fairly close proximity to Kruger National Park. At SCI this year a couple was booked for a Leopard hunt. The hunt started about 2 weeks ago and culiminated last evening with this beautiful cat. This is an area where Leopards can be hunted at night with artificial light and I believe this was how the cat was taken. Hopefully Jacques will be able to fill in some more details. I can tell you this lady was on her 5th attempt at leopard and is 85 years young!

    It can be done, it just takes tenacity.
