Always a joy to view the variety of wildlife that makes Londolozi home.

Thanks Joanne, happy to hear it brings you joy!

Lovely photos. That sighting of the Ingrid Dam Female in the tree is so special to me since it was my first time seeing a leopard in a tree. And I have some great photos thanks to your photography hints that day, James! Still waiting for the wild dog blog 😉

Hi Lisa, what a sighting that was! Hope you and Mat had a great time in Hermanus! Keep watching this space for the wild dog blog!

James, thanks for my weekly dose of life in the bush. Living here in Northern California, my week in pictures barely featured cows grazing in the hills of a regional park…….

Your camera settings are greatly appreciated. Cheers to another great week in pictures!!????

Hi Denise, it is such a pleasure!

Stunning pics James. Love the crocodile, Flat rock male leopard crossing the airstrip and the two squirrels.

Thanks Marinda, glad you enjoyed them!

Another fantastic set of photos!! That elephant picture really is something specila, as is that shot of the Birmingham Male!!

Thanks for the compliments Callum. I also really love the elephant bull photo.

Pleasure James!! The lighting and focus were superb!

And nice work on capturing that croc eye and the eagle owl!!

Love the Flat Rock male on the airstrip!

Thanks Susan! Thank goodness he kept walking in that direction. I thought he was going to change direction a few times that morning.

Beautiful pictures James, and a wonderful post. I’m still trying to digest a Birmingham boy, Mhangeni subs and Tsalala males all together feeding off a stolen kill from a cheetah!! Oh my!!

You just never know what will happen in the Bush.. I am glad the B-Boys didn’t harm the Tsalala Boys. But sharing a kill? Wow! Thank you for the update and the gorgeous photos.

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos, James. Seeing them inspires me to take more photos and better my skill. When we were there in January, you and Grant helped me take some shots of the milky way. Each time I show those photos to friends, their jaw drops.

What a beautiful variety of photos. My favorite is the leopard in the tree with her kill. The crocodile one is like the one you helped my get while I was there. Awesome

Hi James! Looking forward to being at Londolozi in a few weeks. Have been devouring the contents of the Londolozi Blog, including of course the beautiful images, ever since we made our reservations. It would be interesting to also add the lens focal length along with the f-number, shutter speed and iso for your photos. That would help visitors to decide which lens to bring. Best, Mike
