Traffic jams do not please anyone, especially when you are in a hurry.
But we welcome you if you are in South Africa and you are driving along the road to the Kruger National Park, one of the most dangerous and at the same time attractive places in the world where wild animals roam free.
Traveling along the wide road of the reserve, locals and tourists can see wild animals: elephants, lions, leopards or rhinos.
Recently, a family passing along this road had a fantastic opportunity to witness such a scene.
That day, early in the morning, when they were leaving the camp in the hope of seeing leopards, Father Tinus Delport jokingly asked his daughters to sing loudly so that the leopards would hear and appear.
They did it, and an amazing magnificent sight opened before their eyes.
First they noticed the traffic jam. Then they realized that the leopard family was to blame.
An adorable leopard mom and her two beautiful cubs were trying to cross the road when one of the little kids, confused and scared, stopped in the middle of the road.
The leopard’s mom must have returned because she saw that her cub wasn’t following her.
It seemed that she whispered something in the ear of her child, urging him not to be afraid and to follow her.
The cubs seemed scared. But they decided to trust their mother, who is always there to help them. And they crossed the road safely and disappeared into the bushes.
For the girls from Deport, it was a good opportunity to take some wonderful photos of these elusive cats.
