Wonderful images from the camera trap. The last one was leopard taking down a kudu?! Honey badger with baby is awesome. See you next week……

Hi James. Just LOOK what happens when no-one is around! It is quite amazing. Have enjoyed every shot from your camera trap but the Mother Honey Badger with Junior is my favourite. Have taken quite a few for my Screensavers. Cheers. Wendy M

I love these posts from the camera traps, so informative and interesting. I had never heard of a Serval before, such a beautiful cat! Oh and has Jess made it back to camp?? Hope so!

I’m simply amazed by the breadth of wildlife that calls Londolozi home! While the shot of the honey badger mom and baby is fabulous, the Ndzanzeni Young Male taking down the nyala is beyond amazing!

Good day, James,

That one-in-a-million photo of the young leopard catching the nyala ewe in the open still amazes me. Leopard are not to be underestimated – we had a 48″, 300 kg. kudu bull that was taken down by a male leopard 300 metres from my home.

I re-posted your kind comment and photo of Jess in a US forum. Being the US of A , 80% of the discussion was about how dare you and I hurt her feelings like that, and that shows just what kind of people we are. I told them that SA girls are not snowflakes, and a lady who carries a big bore rifle, training to be a guide and knowing how to use it if required will laugh with all her peers about being snapped in a camera trap and not whine about her photo being taken!

Kind regards and respect.
