Wow….Absoutely Stunning Pictures!!!….I need to take some photography courses.

Tammy, although I’m sure courses will help a lot, there really is a lot you can do on your own. I would suggest spending a few days in the garden at home with your camera manual and just play around with settings. All of what I do is self learned and it is made a lot easier by the amazing environment and sightings which I find myself in on a daily basis!

These have got to be the best, they are fantastic. I can’t wait for the time when I can return but it’s going to have to be early September to get shots like this. Thank you so much for sharing them.

Thanks Kate. There is fantastic leopard viewing in September, but don’t discount the rest of the year, as each season provides something different as far as colours and photography goes. There is no bad time of the year!

Hi Michel and Maria, great to hear from you. I’m glad you got to see the photo of the reflection of the Dudley Riverbank female that you were so lucky to witness! I hope you are both well and we hope to see you back soon!

Hi James your shot of the Maxabene female under the marula tree came out nicely. That was a great sighting of the grand old dame. Did you manage to identify the young female we saw down South that had the Impala hoisted in the tree a little way off? Was it the Tamboti female in the shot as that female also hissed at us when we were with you??

best wishes
Trevor

Hi Trevor, unfortunately we didn’t manage to identify that female down South. She seemed nervous, even the following day when she was seen at the same place, so I’m sure that she isn’t seen regularly by any of the lodges in the area. I doubt we will manage to find out who she is, but we will keep a look out for her and keep trying. It is, however, exciting to know that there is a new leopard about! It definitely wasn’t the Tamboti female, as she is seen in the central and eastern part of Londolozi. She is usually extremely relaxed and it is very unusual for her to hiss at the vehicle.

James, Tamboti snarling is world class!! Well done.

They’re all gorgeous, but must agree with James. The snarling picture is perfection!

coming in next august what lenses do i need to take these kinds of pictures? thanks in advance

Adam Bannister

Bill I have a 70-200mm IS canon lens. It is wonderful. I might also recommend a 400mm zoom as it gets up close but up to you. Obviously a good wide angle lens helps with scenery and landscape
