Wow! Incredible sighting. All the interaction between the predators. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s blog.

Wow, what incredible sightings you had! I have wanted to return to Londolozi for some years now and I am sure that I will one day. However, having read about all those adventures you guys have had and are writing about, your guests’ expectations will be sky-high. At least mine will be when I return.

What a monumental morning for you and the guests! Seeing so many various animals converge in such a short time created a permanent memory for everyone present. Your story was so well written, Guy, that I felt the excitement of the day….especially when my very favorite Leopard appeared! To have the Mashaba 3:3 appear SO close to the Land Rover and actually STOP to assess the environment gave all a wonderful opportunity to stare at true beauty. I’ve watched her grow up through the camera eyes of a frequent guest at Londolozi. One day it will be my turn!

How very exciting! Can’t wait to see what happened next…..lucky, lucky guests to experience this interaction so early in their drive…. and The Fish Eagle too, just fabulous.

Is it just me or is there a scar above the Mashaba Female’s right eye?

Wow, that was a great morning game drive! I am thrilled to know that wild dogs have re-populated to the extent one can spot them throughout Southern Africa on a more regular basis. 17 years ago I recall a disease had claimed the lives of many dogs in northern Botswana and it took several years to bring the packs back to life. Within Chobe Game Reserve only a couple were sighted and it was at a great distance. Looking forward to part two of your adventure.

Just wondering if anyone has seen Xongile (female cub of Karula) in your neck of the woods?

Unfortunately not, Sylvia.
