A leopard has been spotted in Gorongosa National Park for the first time in 14 years. The big cat was caught on camera for a few seconds only ten minutes away from the camp by a group visiting the Mozambican park.

The species had not been spotted in the region for at least 14 years. But on the night of Thursday March 29, a small group of guides and visitors were surprised to see a leopard on their game drive in the park, the passage through the bush of one of the most agile and feared predators in Africa recorded for just a few brief moments.

The news was quickly relayed by park officials to their main supporter and financier, the American Gregory Carr, who quickly published the information and images on social networks.
