Love your pics this week Paul. Stunning images of the Tambotie cub and Mashaba female in the trees. Love the elephant but the best us probably for me as a Lowvelder sunset over God’s window.

What a great week! Thank you for informative and well written image descriptions. Camera settings are always appreciated.

What a week you’ve had. Stunning photos!

Astounding collection – as usual!

Some wonderful images, Paul! I’m looking forward to seeing this Nweti male as well as my first glimpse of the Birmingham boys next month!

It was a great weekend with your guiding! Thanks for the amazing sightings but so sad to miss those wild dogs!!!!!

I think the young male you have referred to as N’weti is actually Thamba M 5:5? spot patternB: Nov 2016 to Thandi F & Tingana or Gijima M. In the Djuuma/Torchwood Area. N’weti M 3:2 was born 2014 to Hlab’Nkunzi F & Nyeleti M in the NW area of the Sabi Sands. Thank you for the photo of our handsome young Thamba Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos

I do agree with you in IDing the one being called the Nweti male leopard, as he is Thamba, the son of Thandi and Tingana. However he has a 2:4 spot pattern and was born in Jul 2016. The blue eyes is the give away for us SafariLIVE watchers. (I wish there was some way of posting pictures here to show his other ID patterns)

Stunning images this week, Paul. What a week for you and your guests! Each image was special, but I enjoyed God’s Window during the sunset hour….different and very peaceful.

Those cubs are so cute! I think the new nomadic male you saw is actually Thamba. I will send a few pictures to Nick, so you can compare and confirm.

The heron and the hippos, and the elephant bull portrait are particularly beautiful!
