Recent guest and long-time friend of Londolozi was back for another visit a couple of weeks ago. With Ranger Sandros Sihlangu and tracker Ecskon Sithole, who between them boast a combined total of over 50 years bush experience, he was in position to take some great shots during his stay.

Here are some of his highlights:

The sun sets on another magical day at Londolozi.

Wild dog sightings are always very special as they roam large areas and it’s always a surprise as to when they’re going to visit us next.

Stunning photos Anthony. I really like the one of the Mashaba female – there is something very vulnerable about it. Thanks for sharing.
