Recent guest Mike Johnson was on a return visit to Londolozi, and just had too many amazing photos not to share with us:
After a magical time at this very special place in November 2014, along with memories that have kept us smiling ever since, we just had to return. September was very different, gone was the lush foliage of the bushveld, plentiful water holes and productive grasslands, in their place were vast expanses of open grounds providing excellent visibility for viewing wildlife. The dry river beds, where foliage still flourished, attracted all kinds of animals along with their predators. With our extremely knowledgeable guide, Sean and Tracker Terrance looking after us, we managed to capture many incredible moments as well as learn a tremendous amount about the behaviour of various mammals, insects and birds, and how this can change in times of severe drought. With these two enthusiastic and very talented individuals at the helm, adventure after adventure unfolded and we experienced moments that will stay with us forever.
We returned home from our first trip to Londolozi feeling huge amounts of gratitude for natures gifts and the individuals who fight so hard to preserve these very important areas. Returning home from this trip was no different, Londolozi and the people who work there, hold a very special place in our hearts, we are blessed to be able to experience such incredible individuals and the wonders they share.
Below is a just a very small portion of the many images we captured on this visit, we still cannot believe this was over just a few days and once again would like to thank Sean and Terrence for their incredible enthusiasm and love.
Images were mainly shot with a Nikon D500 and 300mm f2.8 lens along with a Nikon D800 and 70-200 f2.8 lens with the occasional use of a 16-32 mm f4 lens and flash for the odd evening shot.
