on The Most Relaxed Honey Badger at Londolozi

Great sighting. We were fortunate to see one at Londolozi early one morning. They can become scavengers as we have experiened in the camps in Kruger. They open fridges and cooler boxes “stealing” the campers food.

Nice!! they are such feisty little animals! I have seen them mostly in the Kalahari, and boy…… they scare even bigger animals. It was a sighting with youngish lions, and really, they left!!! 🙂

I once saw a hyena walking down a path, on it’s right about a metre away was a honey badger walking in the same direction and parallel with it, on the left walking parallel about a metre was another honey badger. It was a hyena filling inside a honey badger sandwich. I have never seen any animal look so miserable

Shaun, we were the couple who had been at Abu’s (and love olives!) Our joke was that we needed to see a honey badger and not 2 years later we have from my pc! So glad you and Elmon are still working together, it was a privilege to be with both of you!

Fabulous James !!! Where did the sighting take place? Thanks.

Wow! Super photo of the honey badger next to your rover. I saw a couple in Tau Pan, but they were not close enough to capture and moved at lightning speed once they spotted our rover. Such feisty little creatures!!

The image at the top of this post is world-class.

Awwww amazing ❤❤..one of my favourite animals.

Hi James. Took two of your pics for my Screensaver! But not the Coelocanth one! Wendy M

That a really great pictures. Very interesting.

I’ve been lucky enough to see honey badgers twice, but never like that!! They are very intelligent, so they definitely have a wide range of personalities!!

Great story, James and cool photos of the badger’s face and expression!

Wow awesome photo of the honeybadger in the spotlight. Great to see how relaxed he is!

On my next trip I hope to see a honey badger. Great sighting and photography
