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.

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.
