A massive male lion discovered a leopard’s iмpala meal up a tree and assumed it would be simple prey. But even though he was deceased, this iмpala fought!
After a recent sighting in the Greater Kruger, Benjamin Scheepers, a 30-year-old Field Guide, and his companions were on the edge of their seats. He had never seen anything like this in his 13 years of directing. A lion climbs a tree to steal a Leopard’s kill and then has to split it with his brother!
From cappuccino in the morning to a tree-climbing Lion.
“On a morning safari, we had paused for some coffee and noticed a mass of cultures circling an area nearby. My visitors and I resolved to investigate. We discovered nothing after entering the area until a Male Lion appeared and began sniffing around. This was already a significant victory for us, as I had not yet been able to show my guests a male lion.”

“Then this male began trotting towards a tree and started climbing!” My pulse rate increased, and I was completely taken aback. I moved the ethical so that everyone could get the best view. Sadly, I had passed up the chance to photograph the climbing.”

“Before we knew it, he was in the tree and had managed to get a Leopard’s, Iмpala 𝓀𝒾𝓁𝓁. When he carefully came down, his brother moved in to get a piece of the 𝓀𝒾𝓁𝓁. Of course, this gave off somewhat of a rumpus, but after a quick game of tug-a-war, both lions had a quick snack and went to take a nap in the shade.”

“No leopard was around at the time and expectedly did not return.”
This was lucky because Leopards have one advantage: they can hoist their food at an elevated level. This helps to keep the competition from taking their prey. Lions, in general, are not known to aid climbers because their size and weight do not always enable them. But, once again, this is an amazing example of Mother Nature defying the law of them.
“I honestly did not know when to take photos and when to take videos, and when to simply just appreciate what we had been fortunate enough to experience. This has, Ƅy far, been one of my most memorable sightings. I have never witnessed anything like it and will surely remember this for the rest of my life.”
