Sounds like another routine day in Londolozi….

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for 4 unforgettable days over Christmas. The best indciation of how much we were all enthralled by the experience is that two teenage boys (normally hard to impress) are asking that we forget all other vacations so that we can come back again as soon as possible. So much for the trip of a lifetime.

Please pass on our thanks to Mike, Trisha, Trevor, Phan and all at Pioneer Camp – hope to see you again soon……..

YAY! I love cheetah and was only JUST wondering if the lone resident of Londolozi was still on the premises! Very glad to hear not only that he is, but also that he is a very successful hunter! Hopefully he can attract some mates! Thanks for the post!

I am so happy to hear that the cheetah is still there and seems to be doing so well! We were thrilled to see him this past July.

Wow, what a great shot and awesome video! We got to see this cheetah when we were there in September so I’m glad to see he’s doing well! On our trip through Africa we got to see the most spectacular sighting of a cheetah making a kill of a baby kudu and dragging it to cover to protect it and himself. Lo and behold a female leopard caught wind of it and came to steal the kill from the cheetah. The cheetah actually tried to defend his kill though in the end the leopard prevailed. To watch these two spotted predators square off was something I will never forget. If anyone is interested in seeing the only shot of these two interacting check out my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jamie-Hopf/324118137697943.

Meanwhile – I can’t wait until I can make it back to Londolozi at some point!
