Quick tips to play Nidalee

Nidalee is an early game dominant Jungler. Look to gank as frequently as possible to get yourself ahead.
Use alternative ganking routes by jumping over small walls with your Bushwhack / PounceW to ignore commonly placed wards.
Delay a team fight for as long as possible while you poke them down with long-ranged Javelin Toss / TakedownQ’s.
