Amazingly, hundreds of people every month search online for “will a leopard attack a human”. Well the short answer is YES. Of all the ‘dangerous game’ species in Africa, leopards are the least likely to attack humans, but when they do it’s no joke! If they are put into a confrontational situation, are not likely to back down. As you’ll see in the leopard hunting video below, when they come, they come fast.

Leopard Attack Statistics

According to the Wildlife Conservation Society, leopard attacks on humans are rare, but they do occur. In India, for example, there were 431 leopard attacks on humans reported between 2015 and 2019. However, it’s important to note that these attacks were reported in areas where human activity and leopard habitats overlap.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
