Leopards inhabit a variety of terrain including forests, savanna, shrubland, grassland, rocky areas, and deserts. They are most populous in mesic woodlands, grassland savannas, and forests, but also occupy mountainous, scrub, and desert habitats.

Leopards favor trees throughout their entire geographic distribution and are most comfortable in the lower forest canopy, where they often feed. They descend from the canopy head-first.

Leopards have been recorded at 5638 meters on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
