Long time Londolozi guests and our loyal ambassadors, Marianna Gdanis and Alan Griffiths, share their stunning photographic highlights from a recent trip to Londolozi Pioneer Camp.
Having seen the Sparta Pride on a wildebeest kill, the Manghen pride make an impala kill and a variety of leopards including the Camp Pan Male and the Tamboti cubs, their trip was centered around the big and small cats! Enjoy the photographs…
Our first afternoon drive started well, as we saw a huge rhino bull come down to the water to drink.
We then saw another rhino bull come from the other side of the water and give us a little territorial display.
We then came across the Sparta pride on a wildebeest kill, with one Majingalane male present

Winter sunsets are simply stunning!
The next morning after our game drive, the 3 Manghen lionesses chased a kudu bull right past our room. We ran to the deck and watched them cross the river onto the rocks opposite Pioneer Camp
so when we went out on game drive later that afternoon, we went straight to the other side of the camp to look for them
They lazed around a bit and then got up and started stalking a herd of impala almost immediately.

We witnessed the kill and were in awe of just how quickly they devoured the young impala ram they had just killed.

On our last morning game drive, after searching for 2 solid days, we finally found the Tamboti cubs.
They put on an amazing display for us, stalking each other and chasing each other up the tree.
The two tamboti cubs are unbelievable cute!
