Kenya leopard is the most spectacular wild animal in Kenya. On this page we will guide you about Leopard as part of Animals in Kenya.
Unlike the lion, the Leopard, Panthera pardus, is a solitary animal. They are silent and wary and tend to glide away into the brush if disturbed.
Being accomplished climbers you may see them during the day resting in a favourite tree or on a large rock. They also take larger kills up into the branches as a protection from passing scavengers.
Many Kenyan lodges put out bait for the local Leopard; generally this consists of a goat haunch tied to a tree. This can allow you to get a really good look at one of these beautiful cats.
