Name: Lyss

 

Location: Titusville, FL I can see NASA across the river

Originally from Phoenix AZ and lived in multiple areas of Illinois.

 

Favorite Animals include: Orcas, Horses, African Leopards, Kudu.

 

I've not been on an actual safari before it is a bucket list dream right now, but I do go on a safari 2 times a day from my home while watchin WildEarth's safariLive online everyday on youtube. :) I have been watching and following the lives of the animals within the Sabi Sands and focused more closely on animals seen within the traverse area of WildEarth which is Djuma, Arathusa, Chitwa Chitwa, Cheetah Plains and they just added the entirety of the Masai Mara in Kenya.

 

I'm quite active on Facebook reading updates from different lodges, gathering information for the different groups I belong to as well as researching the leopards of the Mara for my own Facebook group that focuses on them solely. I also scour lodge sites and forums like this for information on the leopards. I have probably used photos from this site before, and I make sure to put credit when I do, but if you are not okay with me using your photos please let me know and I will happily take them down. If I can help ID an individual I will happily do that also. I'm quite proud of my leopard group as I've not found one dedicated to leopards of the Mara or a site like the lions, cheetah and hyena have. I find that a shame and so I'm trying to work hard on getting as much info on the different cats as I can as well as their stories.

 

I am a amateur photographer focusing on wildlife nature and architecture that catches my eye.

 

I'll post a link to my portfolio once it's finished.

Hello Lyss!  I was in Titusville in March; checked out Waffle House, Kennedy Space Center, and Cracker Barrel (in that order.)   ;)

 

I'm going on my first-ever African safari next month, based on trip reports and recommendations from this fine group of enthusiasts at Safari Talk. I'll keep my eyes peeled for leopards for you (and me!)

With all your study beforehand, you'll be an expert when you do go on safari.  Welcome to the forum.
