Quintessential Londolozi. Love these images.

All these images are unique. What beauty along with interesting variety of animals you are able to see frequently in Londolozi! Never boring. The sunset images are dazzling!

Amazing pics Pete. Love the sunsets and the Paradise Flycatcher.

Beautiful images!

Such beautiful photos and equally wonderful prose!

Senior Digital Ranger

very nice pictures again!

Wonderful photo of the African Paradise Flycatcher!
Most of out friends marvel at the beutiful red African sunsets which rival those we see daily over the Gulf of Mexico.

Always look forward to TWIP. They never disappoint.

Loved the pictures.
African Paradise Flycatcher, Giraffe mom and calf shots are extremely beautiful and elegant 🙂

Loved the photos this week, particularly the Ximungwe leopard and cub. Nice week! Thanks for sharing, Pete!

Wonderful pics, Pete! Love that flycatcher and the look from that lioness would stop me in my tracks! Fun twip!

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.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for this valuable information. It helps us a lot!

Great shots … love the black & white ones in particular!

Another fabulous TWIP! Sunsets were spectacular, and the African Flycatcher a first for me. Thank you for providing a unique view of the bush activities in Londolozi each Friday!!

Thanks Denise! Glad the flycatcher was a first for you. They are stunning birds.

I loved the flycatcher, giraffes and the Birmingham male. The sunsets were pretty spectacular as well.

Thanks everybody for the kind feedback!

The sunsets you captured are amazing.

What spectacular pictures! Loved the hyena high jump act. The sunsets were gorgeous and love seeing the huge herd of buffalo. Thank you Victoria

Mesmerizing photographs, especially the leopardess with the hyena jumping to try and get in on the action.
