Stunning pics Dean. Love the buffalo and hooded vulture.

Thank you Marinda.

A great compilation of photos!

Thank you Gawie

These were awesome photos – keep them coming

Appreciate it Joan

Terrific TWIP! That shot of the male leopard ascending the tree is stunning! Loved the B&W shots too! Thanks for sharing, Dean!

Thank you for the great comments Darlene

We have a similar image of the Ndzanzeni male cautiously drinking. Most of the comments are about the eyes.

Eyes of most animals are captivating and in B&W, it helps our eyes be drawn to them too.

I always look forward to Friday’s week-in-pictures; it helps maintain my connection to Londolozi until the next time I can visit.

Glad we able to keep that connection alive.

Cracking photos (as always) . TWIP is probably my favourite email of the week (and long may it continue)

Thank you Ian and long will they.

Thank you for a wonderful TWIP! A couple of stunning leopard shots as well as the mud bathing elephants. Viewing made for a great way to begin Friday….

Thank you Denise, glad you enjoyed.

Stunning pictures all too beautiful to pick a favourite, but I think in this blog it would be the lion cub & leopard on his way up the tree! ? Thank you Dean

Thank you Wendy. The Anderson Male climbing the tree is one of my favourites too.

Excellent weekly photo’s. So many good ones, but especially liked the Anderson male powering up the tree. What strength!! Incredible!

Thank you Joanne, you right that strength is incredible.

Such a treat to see all of these gorgeous animals! Reminding us how much we miss you all!! As Leays the visit was too short. Victoria

Thank you for the comment Victoria. Hopefully see you again.

Fantastic TWIP, my favourite is also the Anderson male climbing the tree – phenomenal grace and power.

Thank you Suzanne, power is spot on.

Great collection this week. Were the young cheetahs the siblings of the group of mother and cubs that was hanging around earlier, or a different pair?

Thank you Chelsea, yes they were, the mother has since passed away.

Love the hippo, python, hooded vulture and the Anderson Male photos!

Thank you Callum, glad you enjoyed.
