The female leopard rolls over onto her back each time after mating for a better chance for the sperm to get to the egg. Leopards mate once a year and it goes on about every 15-20 minutes for 2-3 days. The poor male gets so exhausted that sometimes he'll try to climb a tree to get away from the female.

On Safari in South Africa
There have been a few trips that, for me, can be considered "trips of a lifetime." Going on Safari in Africa was a life-long dream. At Londolozi in South Africa we saw leopards mating. It was one of the most amazing, and memorable, times of my life.
