Awesome pics. Amazing photo of the hippos

Hi Marinda. The hippos are always spectacular when they kick off, I am just glad to be some way from them with a telephoto lens when they do!

Stunning photos Phil! For some reason the video clip didn’t come through though so I couldn’t see it. Thanks for sharing all the beautiful photos! I think the Cheetah and the Lilac Breasted Roller are my favourites!

Thank you Jill. Sorry the video does not play there must be some error in your player for some reason. The Cheetah is amongst my favourite animals and the Lilac Breasted Roller is just so spectacular. I managed to get one in flight at sunset this time which I was really pleased with.

It must have been an Apple iPad flash issue Phil, because I did manage to open the video on my computer later on. I enjoyed it immensely and Dawn’s segment with the Majingilane was fantastic! It sounds like the rest of your photos are just as wonderful and I would love to see your photo of the Lilac Breasted Roller in flight if you are posting more photos in the near future!

Thanks Rich. Hopefully we will be back out in May for 8 days to top up my portfolio of various images. Each time I come out my photography improves in so many ways.

Wonderful images Phil. I’m looking forward to seeing more photographs from your recent stay at Londolozi.

Thanks Kate. I have been through most of my recent work and have certainly managed to get some great images again. The light this time was quite spectacular and both morning and evening sessions were really productive, especially enhanced when using the D4S with the 600mm lens. A great combination. I am glad I brought the spare D4 with the 80-400mm it saved a lot of time in not having to change lenses each time I wanted a different perspective.

Best video ever!! Dawn, you captured Londolozi in all of its beauty. Thank you–I will be back for a 3rd time in September.

Dawn actually only supplied the end footage of the four males roaring. All the other work and effort was entirely down the Rich Laburn. But a great video non the less and a good bit of collaboration.

Should have known it was Rich’s work. Every one of you has an eye for what is magical. Thank you.

Great photos and great film Dawn. You are right, it makes us long for the bush, we are returning in a month for our 3rd year and plan to visit again in 2015 .

Londolozi is always very consistent with the variety of animals in the area. Especially the number of leopards, lions and even the resident cheetah. I must admit to having a soft spot for the elephants though, I feel very relaxed around them, being close enough to hear them breathing and eating. Plus that deep rumble sound they make. Love it!

Fantastic photos Phil!!! We are returning in April of 2015, so maybe we’ll run into each other! Thank you for sharing your exceptional work!

I am glad you like the images. Having just got back to the UK I have over 4,000 photos to go through. The light this time of the year is quite exceptional, and more flattering to the animals rather than the harsh light of December that I am normally used to.

Thank you Phil & Dawn. Both the pictures & video are stunning and yes the warning is so right! That cough of the Leopard & the roar of those 4 big guys is spine chilling but oh so typical of the bush. Hope to see more pictures soon.

Thanks very much. We were exceptionally lucky to be in the right place at the right time with the four Majingilane males right in front of us. Although I got some great photos, Dawn’s video captured the thrill of their combined roaring which was so much more atmospheric and made the hairs on my neck stand on end!
