Stunning pics once again. Love the rhino on the airstrip. Great news about the Ximungwe female. Lets hope the cubs survive.

Great week in pictures! I especially loved the hyena cub with mom, the male lion looking up at the Bateleur eagle and the rhino on the airstrip. Thanks for sharing!

I really look forward to the “Week in Pictures” feature. It helps me keep alive the wonder and enjoyment I experienced as a guest of Londolozi.

TWIP, a highlight every Friday morning…great pictures as always Jim!

Very nice selection of images and well taken for this week’s TWIP. Not sure when or how I “assumed” that ostrich’s would not be found in the African bush. Perhaps because the other popular dominate animals are sought and seen to view and photograph. Nevertheless, it always re-surprises me when I see their image on the blog. And how interesting to learn that the Impala have teeth specifically formed for grooming! Finally I find it reassuring to hear that all the young one’s in Londolozi continue to thrive thus far. You always bring us excellent writing, information and images, James and it is very appreciated.

Thanks James for the great photos and very interesting blog! I was wondering if there was a particular animal that you photograph that excites you when you see them?

Beautiful photos, as usual. And many thanks for your recent update on returning from your two week leave. We’re glad that all of the various leopard cubs are still there and thriving!

The Nokeveni female with cub and the White Rhino photos are really good photos, sometimes it just has to be simple, to be stand out

Hi Franka,

Thanks for the kind words.
Great to hear you’re coming out to Africa! What camp are you staying at?

Best regards,

James

I’ve witnessed it myself. Nothing strikes fear throughout the bush like Wild Dogs on the hunt. I guess it may come down to the fact that the herbivores know that unlike any other predators, the wild dogs are totally relentless and short busts of speed to try to escape will not work with those guys. Run for you lives……and even that will probably not be enough! The only other predator I’ve seen cause such panic/fear are Killers Whales.

Hi Brian,
Interesting comparison. I’ve seen Killer Whales hunting dolphins off the rocks at Fish Hoek in Cape Town. As they are known as the wolves of the sea I think you’ve hit the nail on the head!
