Beautiful pictures Amy,great sightings this week.The Dudley 5:5 male is thought to have lost his eye in a fight against what was arguably his nemesis,the Marthly male,in 2013.It’s good to see that the Anderson male is being sighted more frequently in Londolozi,has he reached the Sand River by now?

Thanks Alex, that’s great to know. Interesting as the Dudley Riverbank 5:5 male reminded me a lot of the Marthly male with his torn ear and battered face. The Anderson male has been sighted mostly around Ximpalapala Koppies and further north of that; I have not heard of any reports of him around the river yet. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with his movements.

Awesome shot of that adult giraffe bull and the wild dog pups. I bet they were quite the annoying bunch to him.

Wow – such a great collection of pictures. I am just home now for two weeks since being at Londolozi and it feels like months, but those pictures instantly take me back! Thanks so much for posting!

Great photos. Loved Mashaba female interacting with the hyena. She and the cubs look great (keeping fingers crossed). The giraffe and the wild dogs was also a very interesting picture. The charismatic 5:5 (Airstrip) male has been blind in one eye ever since a fight with the Marthly Male on MM 1 and 1/2 to 2 years ago. Back then the Marthly male was truly a massive, intimidating powerhouse. How things have changed! Its good to see 5:5 though— he has been very successful so far. The leopard dynamics are almost as chaotic as the lions right now!

Amazing pictures, the wild dog pup by water is a once in a lifetime photo, and highlights the importance of trying to get down as low as possible for the shot.

Can you tell me how many young males in Mhangheni Pride? As I know, there are 8 members in Mhangheni. Is he the one of Sparta young males?

Thank you, Amy, for another wonderful week. Love seeing Mashaba. First saw her in 2010 with her baby, & now she is a mother again. Does anyone know what has happened to Camp Pan?
