I have always wanted that photo. It is why you should have a wide angle lens in the camera of a short zoom.

Hi Ian, a wide angle lens would have definitely been more ideal for the shot! It all happened so quickly.

Some beautiful shots here James. So glad you have finally received enough rain to swell the Sand River. Great for humans and animals alike.

Awesome collection Souchon. Love it. Are the Mhangeni breakaway back with Matimbas? And are the Matshapiri pushing in on Londolozi?recently been hearing such developments.

I am also hearing the Mhangeni breakaway lioness which gave birth to her first litter of cubs to your east, has now brought her cubs on Londolozi and reunited with the other Mhangeni breakaway lionesses. Is she back?

Hi John,
At least one lioness has had cubs, but we are yet to see them on Londolozi. They will only be a couple of weeks old, so it may be awhile before we see them…

Beautiful pictures, James! I love the fire rainbow image, and it’s so fantastic to see the Wild Dogs back on Londolozi (although the Nhlanguleni female may not agree)! Thank you for sharing these beautiful images with us.

Hi Jill, Thanks very much. Its always very exciting to follow a pack of wild dogs, you never know whats going to happen!

Compliments of the Season to you James & all at Londi! Oh wow how amazing is this WIP. The beautiful cloud formation with the rainbow & those nutty dogs trying to reach the Leopard so high in the tree & all the green after the devastating drought, may it now be a thing of the past! Have a great weekend 🙂

Thanks Wendy and the same to you. The reserve is flourishing at the moment with all the water. There is lots of new growth and new life!

Nice article and pic’s James. You may have accidentally shot yourself in the foot with that pic of the Klaas Cuckoo though …. Helen’s probably wondering why that one was not included in the 110+ types of birds that you found for us last week ! 🙂

Thanks again to you and Richard for another great week at Londolozi

Gordon & Helen

Hi Gordon, hahaha… I was very worried that Helen might see that picture of the Klaas’s Cuckoo. We’ll get it next time! It was such a pleasure and thoroughly enjoyed our week together! Keep well.

Are both Matimbas still together? Saw a report that Ginger was in KNP now. Please let me know! Thanks in advance

I also saw that report that mentioned one of the Matimba Males but that could be one of the Northern Matimbas who look similar but have much thicker impressive manes.
