Pete, I loved the picture of the African paradise flycatcher, and the dazzle of zebra, and the mother giraffe licking her calf. Well done!

Pete, what a wonderful week. I was having a “I am there” moment looking at this weeks pictures. Sunset is amazing.

Hello Pete,
Fantastic pictures! It was interesting to read!
I’m really longing back to the bush!
Thank you for the week in pictures!

Splendid images with a certain poetry.

Hi Peter, the two young males are the Mhangeni Male (slightly thicker mane and a son of the Majingilanes – only remaining male of the original nine from that group of Mhangeni sub-adults, two of the females have rejoined their mothers) and the Nkuhuma Male, who is several months younger and a son of the Birmingham Boys. The Mhangeni Male joined the Nkuhuma Pride in September 2018 and two of his brothers joined him, but they didn’t pull through the bad case of mange they had, and slowly but surely he was accepted into the Pride. He ventured down south and was with the four Southern Pride members and two young Talamati Males, and the Nkuhuma Male was seen on Londolozi a few weeks ago with the injured Birmingham Male, and then both boys returned to the Northern Sabi Sands and were seen briefly with the Nkuhuma Pride (who now have nine cubs with the three Northern Avocas), before I assume the Avocas pushed them out again.
