My driver said it was the remains of a small gazelle. Just to give you an idea; there were 12-15 vehicles under the tree with tourists taking pictures! Watched by rangers moving the vehicles on to prevent a traffic jam under the tree.

The brances were very thick so you could hardly see the corpse and the leopard eating. I tried a few shots with the 70-200 but it was very far. The 400 just about picked the head of the leopard while enjoying his/hers lunch! I had to focus manually due to the dense tree branches.

Thanks for your comments.
