Leopard vs Warthog in Kruger

Leopard vs Warthog in Kruger

Wildlife photographer Sheila from Sheila’s Africa, was lucky enough to be in the north of the Kruger National Park when she came across a sighting that would quickly become epic!

While sitting at the Sable Dam in the Kruger Park, she was watching a warthog wallowing when she spotted movement in the bank about the pig.

What followed was an epic battle between the agile and bigger leopard and the razor sharp tusked stocky warthog
