    Did you know ...

    With nine recognized subspecies, leopards have the largest distribution of any wild cat, occurring widely in Africa as well as eastern and southern Asia? South Luangwa is one of the world's best places to see these beautiful predators, but leopard populations elsewhere are declining in large parts of their range. They are threatened by habitat loss, pest control and illegal hunting for their pelts.
