Fred and Cathleen Eldridge stayed with us last month and, after receiving only one or two of Fred’s pictures via Facebook, I knew that we needed more to share with you all on the blog! They enjoyed a private vehicle with ranger Jess Boon and tracker, Jeff Mhlongo and by the looks of things, they had some wonderful sightings. Enjoy this week’s guest footage…
The cheetah cubs being their playful selves.
Getting stuck into their meal for the day.
I love the perfect reflection in this picture.
Elephants are wonderfully social animals and here you can see two of them embracing in a ‘trunk lock’.
A little unsteady on his feet, this little elephant was quickly back up and brushing himself off.
Giraffes cannot keep their head down for too long, as they will pass out from too much blood running to their head so it must’ve taken a quick reaction for Fred to get his great picture!
The side lighting in this shot is used very well.
One of the Majingilane males make their way behind another Londolozi vehicle, do you think the other guests are a little nervous?!
One of the Majingilane males sharpening his claws for his next meal.
Waiting for one of his brothers to catch up to him.
Even though these cubs are growing up so quickly, they still show us their wonderfully playful manner.
Still having some fun with their brothers and sisters
