Thank Marinda. It’s one of my favourite places too. We had an exceptional sighting of a mother cheetah with her two cubs getting warmed up for the day!

Great blog and beautiful images Ryan! I have often wondered though, what do you do when a plane is coming in to land and the pride is very happily lounging all across the airstrip? Most beautiful sight was Londolozi from the air and saddest day ever as our plane took off on our last day there.

No Caption – No Photos, but from memory we did see a Scrub Hare on the Runway in 1978, It was eating the grass!. We are hoping for something better in March! Chris & Derek

In March the grass around the runway will still be green, so you’ll certainly see the grazers up near the runway Derek. And when there are grazers, there is always a good chance that “border patrol” will be lurking 🙂

Great blog Ryan, love this collection, the airstrip has certainly seen its fair share of ‘airstrip’ officers!

Lovely pictures Ryan. I guess the Vomba female was trying to cross & not get her feet wet 🙂 I also would like to know what happens to a flight when the Border Control are sprawled on the tarmac??

Good question Jill and Wendy! Our fire marshall is present on the airstrip for every flight that lands on the “bush strip” and it is his job to gently usher the animals off the runway, should they be there.
