Thank you for the pictorial update. We always enjoy seeing and hearing what is going on at Londilozi.
Also thought your video on the Majingilane, lions was wonderful, hard to watch in places, but very informative all the same.
Again thank you for all of you posts, they are greatly appreciated.

Wonderful pictures this week! Excited to hear about the wild dog sighting – hope they will be there when we come in June! The flooding pictures are incredible, thanks for including and for explaining what these views normally look like for those of us who aren’t so familiar with the area.

Beautiful, beautiful shots of the wild dogs, and I am gobsmacked by the shots of the Sand River! It will be exciting to see how the flooding will affect the movements of the animals within the reserve in the forthcomming week. Thanks x

The river is unbelievably high! Hope that was the crest! As to the lioness giving a ringing slap to the lion, great shot Talley! My favorite of the week!

It is fascinating to see the height of the river. We hope there was little damage. We loved the picture of Tear-along, the dotted lion!

Talley you never fail to amaze us with your photographs – each one tells a story – and talk about flood levels – thank goodness you are all safe and well, even if a bit soggy under foot!

Quote:”More often than not, the female will fly along and strip the nest bare if she is not happy with the quality of the build”

Possibly the finches in your area have a different culture to those near Pretoria but here it’s the males who strip the nest if they are rejected by the female. I’ve never seen a female destroy a nest.
I just love your blog.

Hi Martin, the bird in question is not a finch but rather a weaver. I am not entirely sure about the breeding and nesting habits of finches, however you can read a bit more about the masked weaver here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Masked_Weaver . thanks for your comments and glad to hear you love the blog. rich

The rain seems incredible. I would love to see some contrasting pictures to get a true sense of the rising water level. I hope you are all still safe and smiling there at Londo’z. Great Lion and Wild Dog pics this week. Shjoe.

Loved reading and viewing the week in pictures and so pleased to know the river has subsided and life in the bush is “relatively” back to normal. Stunning photographs, thanks for sharing!!!
