Lumondt Kritzinger and his family spent a long weekend in Uitkyk cottage in the Cederberg at the end of April 2012. While driving on the winding dirt tracks they stumbled across a leopard crossing the road, 1.6 km away from their cottage. Lumondt’s son Luke spotted the leopard in some bushes a short while later and the family watched the animals for some time before it disappeared.
The family named the leopard ‘Luke’, a fitting name for a stunning animal!
