Stunning shots Jamo, particularly liked the close up of the ele’s mouth as it took a taste of thorny branches. I had to smile at the ‘surfing’ shot……hope there will be some good waves for you when your’e home next week!

The photo of the lion cub on the mother’s back is a “once in a lifetime” quality photo. Thanks for sharing.

James, I hope the waves in CT are a “bit” higher than this one 🙂

You love what you do and don’t have a death wish, but I have to ask, were you in the truck with the cub sniffing at you or on foot?? I’m not doubting you, is the Rhino not a black as I notice the lip is pointed? I look forward to being corrected.
Thanks once again for making my weekend wonderful!

Hi Wendy,

Yes I was in the vehicle for the first cub photo. The vehicles at Londolozi don’t have doors on the driver’s side as we are constantly getting in and out to look at tracks and a door would be a constant nuisance. Not having a door can occasionally lead to some uncomfortably close encounters…
The rhino was a white rhino; the lip does look a bit pointed in the photo, but its more the angle that gives that impression. We don’t see many black rhino here, although they are encountered from time to time. They are significantly smaller and with a smaller head relative to the body size than a white rhino.

The Mhangeni female and cub is brilliant. I am sure most mothers can relate to that one, I know I can!

Fantasic shots, James! The cub on its mother’s back is spectacular. Of course, love the b&w ele spraying herself. Just lovely.

Miss you guys!

Hi James i dont know if you remember us we came in February and had such a fantastic time we are coming again in November this year, When we were there Mike Sithole was our traker a very good one as well [as was you a very good ranger] and we promise we would send him a MAN UNITED shirt which we did plus sweets for the children in your school i put my mobile phone number in and asked if he would text to say he recieved it but had not heard anything we sent it recorded delivery and when we tracked it they said it had got to you. if you have a spare minute do you think you could find out if mike got it and let us know if possible, Thank you again for such a brilliant time, hope to see you again in november kind regards Trevor and Mary Jacobs.
