Stunning pics this week but the highlight must be the pangolin. Amazing lucky sighting.

Great TWIP! LOVED that pangolin photo! That is a sighting of a lifetime! Thanks for sharing!

Regarding your “compromise” on the Ingrid Dam female with lightening, James, to paraphrase Tevye, “It’s a curse. May God strike me with such a curse and may I never recover!

James, what a week you had. A Pangolin, the holy grail of animal sightings….. still a phantom for me. I keep waiting and hoping that the next trip will yield a glimpse. At least I finally saw bush babies and the honey badger on a drive back to camp one night.

Love the Ingrid Dam female a she’s so feminine and beautiful. Wishing you all a wonderful few days of holiday celebrations.

Yes. The Pangolin pic takes the cake. However – really also enjoyed seeing the Reedbuck family which we have so very seldom seen. Well done, James. Wendy M

Heavenly days!!!! Two pangolins WOW!! Also love the squirrels. Our first trip we stopped to look at the remains of a leopard kill in a tree and to see if we could see the leopard returning. All of a sudden a squirrel arrived on the end of a high branch and began to yell and scream warnings to any animal nearby. He was dancing with upsetedness and dure enough here came the leopard!! Two weeks from Monday we leave for South Africa and Londolozi. Counting the days! Do you think we could find those pangolins again?! Victoria

Wonderful pics as ever, James, hard to pick a favourite. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.

Photo of the stripe-bellied sand snake eating the tree agama was amazing–incredible.

What a beautiful week once again – how amazing to have seen the pangolin, never mind the pup on her back! WOW

An absolutely incredible range of photos, especially on the leopard front!!! Those shots of the Ingrid Dam Young Female are sensational, as was that shot of the Ximungwe Female’s new cub (I’m looking forward to keep track of their progress). I also love that photo of the vehicle against the backdrop of the lighting storm.

And I have no words for the double pangolin and triple reedbuck sightings!!

My joy at the pangolin picture dwarfs my pouting that I didn’t see on on my recent visit:-) And a youngster! The world needs more pangolins!
