Really beautiful photos of the leopards, really liked the first one of the Tamboti Female and her cub, and the Mashaba Female (didn’t know she even had cubs at the moment). That photo of the Ingrid Dam Young Female is also the first record I’ve seen of a leopard in the bushveld preying on a gerbil (I’ve heard of leopards in the Kalahari doing that though, catching several in a hour).

Also loved the giraffes, the panorama, the elephant calves and Ntsevu lioness photos!

Stunning pics this week James. Love the Ntsevu female and the elephant calves.

Thank you for a wonderful week in pictures. Lovely seeing the Ingrid Dam YF she is still as beautiful as this photo!

I can well imagine there is a veil of sadness hovering over Londolozi regarding the two Majingilane’s current status. Include me. All lovely images this week. The news regarding the Mashaba and Nkovene cubs is tragic. Isn’t the Nkovene leopard the one that was recently named? I knew she was mating, but unaware she had birthed cubs. I have been especially following her for a very long time.

More beautiful and interesting photos this week James, although I realize you and the other concerned guides/trackers are on alert for the ultimate demise of the final two Majingilane brothers.

The photo of the male/female giraffes does really highlight their differences and I especially like the guarded look of the protective rhino – certainly he would have the right of way on the road!

I’m looking forward to your next post. By the way, how is viewing in September. I’ve only visited between December-February (hot and humid) and thought a visit could be good after viewing the migration up north.

Hi Denise,
September viewing is great. It’s right at the end of the dry season so the bush is nice and open, but since it’s spring the temperatures aren’t too low.
