I love this different, on the ground view of the wildlife, especially those that are curious of this “addition” in their space.

I was surprised how much the African Wildcat resembles a housecat. Are they similarly sized to their domestic cousins?

Great fun shots! Loved them. Thanks for sharing, James.

Hi James. Thanks for all the above shots. Just have one question. Where we go to the Bush in the Waterberg we normally see the Black Backed Jackal. Why do you mention the grass height as affecting the Side Striped and the Black Backed? Why should Wildebeests affect the Jackals? Please would you explain more fully. Thanks so much! Wendy M

Interesting that ostriches seem to be migrating to Londolozi

We saw six this morning Ian!

What a fun series of photos! The range of wildlife at Londolozi continues to amaze me and confirms what I tell me people who ask me where to go if they have only one chance to go on safari in Africa – Londolozi!

Have really enjoyed the blogs about the camera traps. Amusing (well I guess expensive also) that the hyenas have nabbed the cameras. I was watching Africam one evening some time ago and a lioness took out their camera. Have also seen ellies get upset by the noise of the camera movement. Some really good pics though. Thanks for sharing.

Nice results!! I’ve wondered as to why there are never any photos of black-backed jackals in Londoz, as they are common in other parts of the Greater Kruger

It seems that jackals get caught more than the other animals. They were the only animals we managed to catch on the camera trap at Rooiputs in the Kgalagadi although we found lion tracks all around our camp.
