Looks like you had an interesting and varied week as evidenced by your photos. I’m loving the little embarrassed elephant- great catch of the expression!! I’m hoping for some baby animals to photograph during my stay 22-25 November! Happy shooting!📷📷

Our very first trip to Londolozi in 2011, James Hobson was our guide and Elmon Mhlongo was our tracker. We had stopped for an evening cocktail, and Elmon asked to quietly get back in the vehicle – there was a leopard coming right behind the vehicle. Elmon had one foot on the vehicle and the other was still on the ground. The leopard came right up to Elmon, sniffed his leg, and continued on his way. We were so excited to see this interaction between a leopard and a man. It was amazing. We came again in 2014, and again in 2017 (with our granddaughter), and will return again in October of this year.

Hi Joan,
What an amazing experience! James was a superb guide and still has close ties to Londolozi, and Elmon of course continues to lead the field in the tracking department.
We look forward to having you back this year.
Best regards.

We watched the space station race across the sky – and wondered how many times we would see it. James looked into it, and came back with a response. He was an amazing guide – knew all the constellations. It was an amazing trip — and we keep coming back, so that is kudos for all of your staff. We never leave Londolozi out. Our last trip we visited Rwanda and hiked with the gorillas (our granddaughter was to young to do this), so we met her family in Tanzania – we went to Bushtops first and then our favorite stop — Londolozi

Several years ago, we were honored to have Elmon as our Tracker . . . an experience we will never forget.

What a great way to end the week! Hard to choose a favorite. The owl is beautiful, the wild dog looks joyful and the baby elephant is just darn cute.

Awesome TWIP. The Nhlanguleni cubs on the rock are amazing to see!

Thanks for these lovely images. Always much appreciated. Re your obs of the Klaas Cuckoo we also have a few residents over-wintering in Fish Hoek. They are constant callers on the coldest of days.
