Read Part 1 and Part 2
We had a very easy 5 hour drive to the Anderson Gate from Swakopmund… the closest gate to Halali Camp, our base for the next three nights.
On the way to Halali we passed a few waterholes which we checked for game. Plenty of Springbok and Gemsbok, but no predators.
Then close to Rietfontein we had a wonderful surprise. It was like meeting an old friend. Last year I photographed a Leopard as she hunted around my vehicle and actually made a kill a few meters from me. There she was again and she was hunting again! She walked around, meandered between our vehicles, then climbed a tree right next to the road, which brought her to our eye-level. She scouted the area carefully before jumping down to continue her hunt. It was already late and we had to get to camp before sunset on order to check-in, so we pushed on.
