Very difficult decision as they are all absolutely stunning Don, but I especially love the Mashaba’s tail circling her two babies & the close up of the ellie tusk & trunk. Thank you & enjoy your weekend 🙂

Who can resist Mashaba and her cubs, but the elephant in the dusty morning, the illusive honey badger, the overactive Wild Dog all are superb. but my favorite is of the old warrior, Gowrie Male Leopard. It breaks ones heart to loose our warriors, but then it sings again with the coming of age of the new generation of Warriors males and females alike.

fantastic set of images don, thank you for sharing sergeys wisdom and the stories you encountered during your time out in the bush veld. I look forward to seeing how mashabas Cubs grow and what’s next for the piva male.

The images are incredibly sharp, what camera and lens were you using?

Great article Don. I’m only an iPhone photographer, but I got some amazing pictures and at the same time enjoyed your tutorial’s with my fellow photographers with more sophisticated cameras. Loved your storytelling around each over the photos!

Incredible photos of great moments – this is what every photographer wants to get – the article brings forth the patience and time it takes to capture this images. We are planning to visit next year in July and hope to capture good moments

I somehow missed this blog, but so glad I found it today!! These are amazing shots. My favorite is the eye-level perspective of the Gowrie Male (tho, I wish it was a closer shot), He looks huge and powerful…and, I agree…those eyes hold you mesmerized! The elephant shot is great, too, and the giraffe B&W. Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed it!!
