“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
Amy Attenborough has been guiding for five years and has recently started the training programme at Londolozi.
“The area that we are lucky enough to live and work in is an incredibly wild place no matter how long you have been guiding in it, however getting to explore Londolozi over the last few weeks with fresh eyes has been a great adventure for me. From new landscapes to new animals, I have had a fabulous time discovering what this wilderness has to offer. Here are a few of my favourite photographs from this time.”
A spotted hyena picks up a scent on the early morning breeze.
A slender mongoose darts across the Sand River.
A saddle billed Stork fishes for its dinner.
The Dudley riverbank young female enjoying the remains of her young impala ram kill.
A fire in the west helps to create a dramatic sunset.
The Dudley riverbank young female choosing a slightly more awkward angle.
A marabou stork inspects us from atop its look out spot.
Some of the larger beasts on Londolozi mingle for the afternoon.
Summer storm clouds provide some very dramatic light to capture this buffalo skull in.
The Tutlwa young male looks out for his mother. Despite not spending much time with her anymore, he couldn’t resist the urge to try share some of her recently caught bushbuck.
A very young elephant, still weak and wobbly, uses its mother’s bulk to shield it from any danger.
The Dudley riverbank young female resting high up in a marula tree. It always amazes me how comfortable a leopard can make a branch look.
