Your pictures are stunning Dean. Love the Birmingham male, wild dog in the water and the Bateleurs.

The photos are stunning, as usual. The “different” elephant reminded me of Boyd Varty’s TED Talk which featured another “different” elephant (Elvis) and how the herd looked after her. This talk was what brought me to come to Londolozi the first time in 2015!

Nice photos! I especially liked the cub photos in the grasses and the leopard with her cubs, as well as the beautiful pair of Bateleur Eagles. Thanks for sharing TWIP, Dean!

Chelsea Allard

Lovely collection. I especially like the leucistic elephant. Is there any research that suggests they have a shorten life span due to skin cancers (if elephants even get skin cancer)?

Dina Petridis

beautiful pictures , I’m jealous of the bateleur , it has been a while since I last saw them, only juveniles lately

Beautiful lion and leopard pics this week, as seems to be the norm for Londolozi. It was good to see the leucistic elephant is doing well, after reading Pete’s informative blog last year highlighting this condition. Always look forward to waking up Friday mornings to view TWIP!!

Exceptional images, Dean. Always love seeing leopards, and even the occasional lion, resting on a tree branch.

Great photos, Dean! I recognize the Ximungwe female’s cub in the tree!
