Stunning pics this week James. Love the baby elephant and Malachite kingfisher.

Thanks Marinda, glad you enjoyed them!


So true!

Great week in review! The pictures are awesome! If you figure out panning, please let me know. That technique seems like it should be easy, but it is not!! Thanks for the photos!

Hi Darlene, I think the trick is lots of practice and a little bit of luck. I still have not mastered the technique and still trying to take a pic that I am 100% happy with. Its still lots of fun to play around with. Good luck!

Beautiful pictures. I loved your story today. All sorts of happy activity going on. I can not wait to hear more about the lion and leopard cubs. Just to let you know, we are hot hot hot over here where I live. Heat index over 100 with a nice breeze that gives you the help you need to keep kind of comfortable. Can’t wait to hear from you again. Thank you

Hi Judy, so happy to hear you enjoyed reading. Thanks for the message. We will be sure to keep you posted on any developments about lion or leopard cubs.

Enjoyed the African Harrier Hawk pic and have taken it to be a screensaver! Have also taken the Malachite Kingfisher. Thank you James! Wendy M

Hi Wendy, I am glad you enjoy the photos so much that you use them as screensavers. Its an awesome thought. We will keep them coming!

A wonderful compilation of photos this week James. Really appreciate the camera settings. I feel I’m shooting along with you!! Even though I’m not much of a birder, I really appreciate your images. Love the leopard with her freshly killed ewe, taking complete ownership!!

Hi Denise, its a pleasure for the settings and hopefully they can help you take some great photos yourself.

One is never disappointed with the weekly images and this week was exceptional. Thanks James. I loved hearing how the Tamboti female plays with her nearly grown cub for hours on end. It’s heartwarming to know the deep bond the females have with their off-spring other than feeding and teaching them to hunt. I would like to be in the rover watching the fun. Then of course there’s the baby Ellie. What’s not to love. Although I was unaware that it took up to 3 months to master their trunk for drinking water! Thanks again, James.

Hi Joanne, it truly is an amazing thing to watch the two of them play and chase each other. I also think baby elephants have to be the most amusing animals to watch move around. Glad you enjoyed the photos!

Great shots James! Hoping to focus on the birds when we visit next time. Kingfisher looks amazing!

Hi Michael and Terri, the causeway crossing the sandriver is always a fantastic spot for birds. Hope you are both well and that we can see you back here soon!

Thank you so much for these amazing stories and observations. Would love to be there…

Hi Elizabeth, its our pleasure! Glad you enjoy reading them and looking at the photos and videos.

Wishing we could celebrate a wedding anniversary at Londolozi. Married in Evander SA July 1981. 4.6C. ? I need to be there in the summer!

Hi Judy, it would be a great celebration!

Love the photo of the Tamboti Female and her cub!

Glad you enjoyed it Callum!
