A really incredeble range of photos and I was particularly happy to see the variety of bird photos. I’ve never a hooded vulture photo as good as that one and I’m very surprised to hear that there are broad-billed rollers nesting on the reserve (definetely not very common that far south). Also love monochrome shots of the lions and the moring shot of the Nanga female. Look forward to seeing more of your photographs

Thank you very much Callum

Who are the father of the Tsalala prides sub adults isn’t it the matimbas

Alex Jordan
Field Guide

That is correct Ramone. The remaining cub of the Tsalala breakaway pride is fathered by the Majingilane coalition.

Alex, Great stream of beautiful images! Great to see both of the Mashaba’s doing so well! When will the “young” Mashaba get her own name? Also amazing to hear that the Majingilane gang is still on patrol!

Thank you. We will discuss the naming of the Mashaba young female when she has firmly established her own territory. At the moment she is still fairly young.

Great pics this week Alex. Love the rhinos and side striped jackal.

Great to hear about the ostriches again

Jeff Rodgers

Love the image of the Rhinos. One of them has an exceptionally long ‘second’ horn. Is this unusual?

Alex, on your comment about the open Piva Male Territory below the Inyathini Male image, you say the Piva and Inyathini males are competing for this open territory. Piva Male cannot compete for his territory since he is deceased. I think you mean the Flat Rock Male instead. 🙂

“With the Piva male’s demise, we are watching with interest as to whether the Piva or Inyathini male will take over this territory.”

Alex Jordan

You are indeed correct Bruce. Apologies for the typo.

Hi, Pardon my ignorance, but in the second last picture it is mentioned that ” With the Piva male’s demise, we are watching with interest as to whether the PIVA or Inyathini male will take over this territory.”
But the Piva male is dead …unless there is more than one ?

Thanks AB, it was meant to red “Flat Rock Male”. Corrected forthwith.
Best Regards

Another great week of photos! I especially love the ending pic of the ostrich- good eye catch. Wish I was there. Enjoy the week to come.

Loved seeing the ostrich and hearing they are flourishing. Please write more about status of the Tsalala pride and break away pride…what is the latest? Sounds serious…..

Great photos! When you get a chance can you provide an update post on the Tsalala and the breakaway pride? The two photos of the old female and the breakaway pride cub talk about significant changes to both. Is the core Tsalala pride is with a single female now since the other female seems to have disappeared. Hope tailless is hanging in there..

I have not seen a story recently of the resident female ostrich. Is this a photo of her? How many chicks survived? Is she still around Londolozi?

Thank you. What else? NOWHERE ELSE!
