‘The female proceeded to cross the road and the male started walking straight up to our vehicle parked about 60m away.
‘Moments later, I lost visual of the leopard as he disappeared in front of the vehicle thinking that he probably came up for a sniff and would walk right past us to follow the female. About a minute later I felt something bumping the car and that’s when we realized that the leopard was actually biting the tyre.
‘What made this sighting special was that it happened at one of the busiest junctions in the southern part of the park, in the middle of the school holidays, bang on peak game drive time and there were no other vehicles in sight!
‘It was a definite once in a lifetime encounter, I mean we all drive around for hours and hours hoping to just catch a glimpse of a leopard, but having one come walking right up to you and giving your car a tyre a good old bite is unheard of.’
The group found 7 puncture marks on the tyre, Jurgens confirmed.
