That’s him exactly! Can’t wait to be back in November to see the growth of all the babies.

Thank you so much for the update and spectacular photos James! I was one of the first guests gifted with the experience of sighting this cub June 2, 2012. It was a moment that will stay in my heart forever and one for which I will always be grateful to Talley and Robert. The magic of Londolozi …

Thank you James; I’m delighted to hear they’ve both been spotted recently. When I came to Founders in February we searched for them in Dudley but without success, as the grass was so long. I was lucky enough to see this cub at just 1 month old, at the end of April, thanks to Sandros and Lucky. I’ve been following her progress ever since, so I really appreciate this blog!

Hi James,i am new to the week in pictures and have to know how you get the animals to pose for you. Hope to spend time with you in October.

Hi John,

If it were only that easy… 🙂
Patience is the key in the bush. Often when we find an animal it is in a thicket or an area where visibility and certainly photographic opportunities are poor, but we are very fortunate to have a large property with relatively few vehicles on it, and so pressure on sightings is minimalised. As a result we are able to spend significant amounts of time with the animals, which gives us an insight into their behaviour and is far more likely to result in them moving into an area or position where we are able to capture a few photos.
Believe me though that for every decent photo we get, there are hundreds of average ones that get deleted!
