Camera: Canon EOS 400D (Rebel XTi) digital; Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM telephoto zoom; Focal Length: 400mm; Aperture: f/5.6; Shutter Speed: 1/160; ISO: 400

Location: Elephant Plains Game Lodge is a private safari lodge situated within the 65,000-ha Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

Sabi Sand, adjacent to South Africa's flagship reserve, the Kruger National Park, is possibly best known as home to a handful of the most luxurious private game reserves in southern Africa, including Mala Mala, Singita, and Londolozi.

There are no dividing fences between Sabi Sand and Kruger, allowing the prolific wildlife to roam freely between the two. The Sabi Sand area - and Elephant Plains in particular - has earned a reputation as one of the top spots in the world for viewing and photographing leopards in the wild.
