As the world is changing and humans continue to populate this world, as we pollute the lands, the air as well as destroy populations of natures great beings, will we one day look back, will we someday turn around and see what we have done? Will there be a wild land for our children and their children?
We need to think, we need to adapt and we need to restore. Each day it is a privilege to walk through these amazing landscapes and view wild animals in their natural habitat, undisturbed and with little interference from man himself. Join our journey from this past week through images captured behind the lens. The Week in Pictures!
The Camp Pan male on a territorial morning route.
The pride that has everyone talking. Their erratic movements have us guessing their whereabouts each morning.
It will be a sad day when the Vomba young male decides to explore regions outside of Londolozi for his future as a male leopard.
With all the water around at the moment, we certainly are not short of any male buffalo in the pans.
It is always a pleasure to view and photograph Southern ground hornbills. Here a juvenile pleads with its parent for a meal.
The most exciting sighting of the week. A hyena stakes out a waterhole whilst a young waterbuck ponders its move for safety and life. This was an unsuccessful attempt at escape being chased back into the water.
A rare image of the Tutlwa young female.
One of my favourite sightings. A flap necked chameleon during the day.
A growing pride. The Sparta pride young males are slowly reaching their goal of being successful young males.
The Makothini male deep in the southern regions of the reserve. Can you see the resemblance with his father Camp Pan?
Sun and sunsets. Africa blesses us each day.
A flame burns to light up a dark night.
An ambiance of energy and warmth. A welcoming entrance and a true African feel at Tree Camp.
The luxury of the camp and the elegance proves to be a welcome back after long hours spent in the bush.
Come and join us for a true African experience. Here our good friend and Camp Manager, Cry Sithole performs in the boma.
An uncommon visitor. Two young males from the Southern pride joined us this week in the depths of the south with their sister.
Her beauty leaves me in awe each time. The Tamboti young female.
The Tamboti young female is almost the size of her mother now – reaching almost one year of age. An exciting prospect for the future of the Londolozi leopards.

“I believe that South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased but when you combine the natural beauty of sunny South Africa with the friendliness and cultural diversity of our people, and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa’s most splendid wildlife, then I think that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land.” – Nelson Mandela
