“Find a sausage tree,” says Guy Combes, “and the chances are good you’ll find a leopard as well. They are ideal for leopards, with their large broad branches to sprawl out on or to place a kill for safekeeping away from lions, hyenas and jackals. Leopards have evolved incredibly strong fore and hind leg muscles specifically for climbing trees. This trait allows them to avoid fighting with other animals of prey over a kill.

“Sausage trees don’t grow in stands, so a large solitary tree provides a leopard not only with solitude but also with an expansive view of what is happening in the territory around it. Leopards will hunt from the early evening to dawn so at midday, as it was when I came across this great cat on the Maasai Mara, leopards are most likely resting. This cat was so comfortable in its perch that a group of elephants rubbing themselves on the base of the tree barely disturbed it.”




Guy Combes
Guy Combes was born in Kenya in 1971, the son of artist Simon Combes. After studying in Kenya for several years he moved to the United Kingdom to continue his education. While in school he developed an interest in visual art. He studied at art college in Cheltenham, then at the Inchbald School of Design. After a short stint as a consultant, Guy diverted his attentions to the catering and licensing trade while painting commissions and design work. Guy is now based in Kenya, where he manages tourist lodges and continues to paint commissions and works for exhibition. In November 2006 he began a program as artist-in-residence at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, New Jersey. His current interests are the history and culture of the Swahili coast of Africa and the diverse wildlife of Kenya. Throughout 2006 Guy visited Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe and the United States and will include observations from these trips in his portfolio.
