Talley, I am so happy for you. You have truly come a long way to reveal what awesome talent you have and your true passion for nature. God Bless you and don’t let anyone ever try to bring you down from the heights you’ve reached. Good on you Girlfriend! Your safari sister. Carol-Anne.xx

Great pics again this week, interesting to see the big tusker. Looks likeone that moves into sabi sands from the central parts of Kruger. If him he has a small square notch in his left ear if I remember and is referred to as Muliliwane (there is a website with all large tuskers in the Kruger documented) most large Tuskers seem to live into their mid fifties.

Thanks Greg, I was also checking out the Kruger Big Tuskers website and thought it must be Muliliwane. He is definitely starting to show his age though, compared to the photos they have on the site. As Jane said below, it’s wonderful to think he has lived up until this ripe old age.

Talley!!! What tales you tell (and what tails you photograph!) the colors in the shot with the lion cubs
Posed on the rocks is just stunning. I feel like I will recognize these animals when we next get to Londolozi! It’s heartening to see a big tusker reach old age without falling prey to poachers.
Fantastic. Another great week of pics and dialog. Thanks!

Another great batch Talley. Can’t believe the Tsalala lioness was in that tree! Is it the horizontal one that leans out from the Western bank? I’ve
always wanted to see something sitting up there…!

Thanks so much guys for all the comments! It is a huge privilege to be able to share with you the stories we get to watch transpire every day, and truly an honour to be a part of the continuing journey.

As I have told some of the wonderful people who have joined Freddy and me on our adventures, the reason I became a guide was to share with you that primal experience of nature, out here in the bush. Yet it is very exciting to now be able to share in a different way, and I hope that as the weeks go on, we can continue to build upon these stories, relaying them as they unfold and bringing the bush to you!

Always had the highest regard for elephants and despised the treatment they sometimes received from humans. Beautiful shots Talley!!

Freddy, the tracker with whom I am privileged to work with…..

and with whom I had the privilege of spending five days on game drives with last November. He was incredibly helpful and patient as I tried to hone my photography skills (or lack thereof)…please say hi to Freddy from Judy in Hawaii. Next trip back…not till 2012 but I wait impatiently for your new posts to live vicariously.

Hi Talley
Wonderful to see a lioness up in the tree. Thomas and I have just remembered that you can see amazing animals every day. The blog helps us to share a little piece of your world. Still thinking a lot of our drives with you. All the best from Heidi and Thomas
