Country: Zimbabwe

Coordinate: 20° 52' S, 28° 8' E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text as range
Geography comments: "a number of private cattle (Bos domesticus) and game ranches (-2074' to -2100'S and 2800' to 2816'E), known as the Ingwezi Game Management Project, in the Mangwe District" (this apparently means 2044')
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical savanna
Protection: other protected area
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 20.4
MAP: 650.0
Habitat comments: "This area is managed as a conservancy and includes 15 small-scale cattle farmers who provide some form of protection to the wildlife and are compensated by profits received from trophy hunting. The study area forms the western end of the extensive Matobo Hills range, made up of large balancing granite boulders known as kopjes... the Mangwe district is exposed to human settlements, trophy hunting, agriculture (small-scale maize production and cattle farming) and high levels of poaching. The study area falls within the Savanna Biome (van Wyk & van Wyk, 1997) and the overall vegetation type is characterized as deciduous tree savanna... Annual rainfall in the region is less than 650 mm and is highly erratic (Lightfoot, 1981; Moyo, 2000). The average annual temperature is 20.4C with an average high of 27.4C and average low of 13.4C"

Sampling comments: "A camera trapping survey was carried out from 23 October to 5 December 2009 and was originally designed to meet the requirements for estimating the density of leopards... cameras... were placed within a minimum leopard home range size of 10 km2... Twenty Wildview Xtreme 5 (Wildview, Grand Prairie, Texas) cameras were placed in pairs, facing each other... images of the same species at the same camera site within a period of 30 minutes were excluded "
