Mathe said, “The leopards were spotted crossing the island and were on the road. It’s urged that especially truck drivers be careful.

“Avoid getting out of the vehicle and onto the road or standing outside cars. These leopards were seen near Biyela and near the local river.”

According to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, the leopards observed on the highway escaped from neighbouring game parks.

Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife said, “Like animals such as snakes, jackals, and hyenas, leopards are free-living in many parts of KZN.

“They are found inside and outside of the protected areas. So, if next time you spot it, count yourself lucky, as they are rare animals to spot. Appreciate its beauty and don’t engage.”

Last year, park officials were able to capture and return five elephants to the reserve. At the time, Ezemvelo’s Musa Mntambo speculated that the fence had been broken by severe rains, allowing the elephants to escape.

Mntambo speculated that the elephants may have escaped to look for marula trees.
