Great pics this week. Love the wild dogs on the airstrip and the sunset.

James, Another masterful job this week highlighting a wide variety of inhabitants. I especially liked the Hippo as well as the Alpha Male Wild Dog. Such great shots. The final picture of the sunset was one I saved in my files to share with friends. Thank you

Wild dogs denning – hopefully that will produce some fantastic shots

Fingers crossed, Ian. It’s been almost a decade since they denned on Londolozi!

Hi Darlene.
Yes, new camera, but Londolozi’s not mine haha. I’m just testing it. Pretty much permanently 😉

Friday is always brighter when the weeks pictures arrive. I particularly loved the hippo giving everyone the evil eye and the adorable bush buck in the camp. Thanks victoria

Beautiful assortment of photos this week. Your ant picture was amazing……

Enjoy your cooler weather- perhaps my next trip to Africa will be during your fall or winter for a change of scenery and temperatures.

I so look forward the Friday ‘Week in Pictures’. Thank you.

Wonderful blog James, and so happy to see your beautiful photo of Ndzanzeni’s latest cub. Hard to tell with so few sightings, but do you think she had 2 cubs in the litter and lost 1? Let’s hope she has the same success with rearing this one as she did with the young male.

Hi Suzanne.
Always hard to tell but it’s certainly possible…
We found the intial den when the cub/s was/were very young but couldn’t get a visual of it/them behind a boulder. The first sighting was probably 6 weeks later!

Is the Makomsava Female the adult name for the Nanga Young Female I saw May 2018?

Hi Phil,

Yip, that’s her!

With situations like the Torchwood lions, were they named by an adjacent reserve and that name was passed along from reserve to reserve?

James Tyrrell

Hi Bob and Lucie,
yes that’s genreally what happens. Torchwood is a lodge in the north-eastern part of the Sabi Sand Reserve.

I love the photo of the Ntsevu Pride!!!

Riandi Appelgryn

James according to another site on Facebook they say the lions are actually the Nkuhumas? The 1 Nkuhuma male, mhangeni male and the nkuma sub adult female. The oldest lioness were also there and then there was a fight between 2 prides and she got injured and died from the injuries. Are these images not the nkuhumas then?

Hi Riandi,

Yes, I forgot to change that. We were told they were the Torchwoods just before the post was published, but then found out our (my) mistake a few days later. Thanks for the update.
