The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is one of the most famous Game Reserves in South Africa because it boasts the Big 5, one of those recently made itself at home at Singita Ebony Lodge.


Sabi Sands is most popular for its Leopard sightings. Recently, Stephanie Abrams Blair was at the Singita Ebony Lodge when she spotted something perched on the chair outside her room.

On closer inspection, she saw a Leopard sitting lazily on a zebra print armchair right outside the lodge door. She quickly snapped a picture of the majestic creature. Once posted online, the picture has been shared nearly 1000 times and has drawn many enthusiastic commenters.

Leopards are fast and can run at up to 58km per hour! They can leap 6m forward through the air and are mostly solitary big cats. As they are nocturnal animals, they spend most of their days lounging in treetops, camouflaged by the leaves and branches. Obviously, this big cat was happier sitting pretty on a Zebra…
