As it is the final day of August and the last day of winter before the official start of spring, we thought we’d share some of the photographic highlights of this month. We were spoilt with incredible sightings throughout the month and some of these images are just too good not to share with you again.
All the images below were taken this month by our talented rangers and guests. Scroll down and have a look at the images that stood out and some that took us completely by surprise. Enjoy the best of August….
A silhouette of a female cheetah with the rising sun. This photograph was the taken on the 1st of August, a great way to begin the month. We love how Mike has captured the cheetah so perfectly in line with the sun and with the cheetah looking off into the distance. Photograph by: Mike Sutherland.
An incredibly rare shot of three adult leopards in line abreast. From front: Tamboti female, Tu Tones male, Camp Pan male. Photograph by James Tyrrell
A close-up of the Tamboti Young Female’s many forms of weaponry… Another unusual shot taken in the last week of the month and showcased in our Week in Pictures. Photograph by Trevor Ryan McCall-Peat.
We love the light, colours and action in this shot taken by photographer Tim Moolman. Dancers perform in the Londolozi boma for a group of guests.
Late in the afternoon Richard Laburn watched as a breeding herd of elephants crossed in front of him walking in the shallow waters of the Sand River. He managed to capture the elephants all walking in single file!
One of the highlights of this month has been the sightings we have had of wild dogs. Wild dogs have set up a den site on the reserve and have allowed us a glimpse into their lives. Trevor McCall-Peat took this image of a pup slowly approaching before jumping on its sibling.
It was a thrill for us to watch these two hippo bulls battling it out for dominance and the right to the dam! This magnificent image of the bulls displaying their canines was taken by Ken Yeo.

The night skies at their best. Star viewing at Londolozi is always a eye-opening experience! Photograph by Tim Moolman
