Regarding Matimbas you write,”We have recently seen the return of one of this Coalition”
So where is the other one? Is he dead or missing?
Happy Farewell

Great photos Dave! We had the privilege of sending 5 amazing days with you and Judas last year. The best 5 days of safari for us! Good luck on your travels! We hope to be back at Londolozi in 2 years or so. Maybe, you will be back?

Stunning photos! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your travels! If you pass through Georgia, USA and need a place to stay, please contact me. We would love to have a member of the Londolozi family! My daughter and I spent a few days there with Sean and Rob in 2015 and are starting to make plans to return in 2018.

Dave – I just want you to know that your patience and enthusiasm (and encouragement!) is what I credit with my newly-discovered passion for nature and wildlife photography. Nikki Upshaw and I still marvel at how fortunate we were to have such amazing sightings and experiences at Londolozi last April. It was one of the greatest joys of my life. I wish you well as you travel our continent. You’ll find that the game is not as big here in the Americas – but the vast scenery is truly breathtaking. If you find your way out to the American west (particularly northern Arizona – Sedona!) please don’t hesitate to say hi! My husband and I would be happy to host your visit. Best Wishes to you!

Thanks for the lovely pics – they all have a story to tell. Happy travels and enjoy – and I am sure many Americanos will enjoy your tales from Londolozi – probably will not believe you!

A really nice blog Dave and some incredible pictures of your time at Londolozi. Nice of you to mention your tracker and give him some credit for teaching you the ways of the bush and animal behaviour. I wish you all the very best on your new adventure. Maybe you will return one day to Londolozi having seen a bit more of the world. Good luck and God bless.

The matimba Male has a small cut under his nose. Has he been in a fight recently?
