Stunning pics this week Simon! Love the big herd of elephants. Great images of the Tsalala pride in the river.

I agree….stunning shots! The Piva male is so HANDSOME!! Yes, and the gorgeous and graceful Nanga female; love her! The Tsalala pride pics exude their power. I’ve seen other shots of them recently, but these make me feel their power. I’m trying to keep up with the story, so I think they may be older now than the last pics I saw. Creative shot of the “river monster”, and brilliant, really because as a viewer I knew right away what it was and felt all the apprehension I would feel if looking at a complete photo!! I could go on and on…LOL, but I’ll spare you!!
Thank you for sharing; it’s the highlight of my week. Great job!

Love the ‘Wedge of Color’ and the Piva Male and the rhino shot – the impact of light in all 3 is special!

The photo with the single elephant is stunning! The unusual composition makes the photograph that much more intriguing! Love these and can’t wait to be there this May!

Simon, the Nanga & Piva Leopards are just as always stunning! I also love the ellies crossing the river, but the Hyena catching the breeze deserves a mention as does the Slender Mongoose, but as always thank you for making my weekend so special! Have a good one too 🙂
