Wow! This is amazing. From leopard to hyenas and lions, and an elephant. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience.

Rob, what a great experience and thanks so much for sharing. Our Londolozi group frequently reminisce about our visit and can’t wait to return!

Hello Rob and Jackson,
What an inforgettable safari! Must have been enormously exciting! One never know what’s going to happen when one goes out on a safari drive…
Thank you for sharing your story! Good written!

Any giraffe’s death is a sad event but a young calf is particularly so. But such is the circle of life in Africa. Interesting that the hyenas missed out probably until all else had finished and the leopard never got any reward for the take-down. Again, the story of life in Africa!

How sad for the mother giraffe, but what an incredible experience for everyone. It is always so exciting to find what is around the corner. Victoria

That had to have been the most amazing experience out of 16 drives. You never know what will happen and patience is key!

First I want to thank Jackson Steele for a very well written story of a most interesting layered account of a kill. I’ve never heard of so many various animals involved in one small kill. Your patience certainly paid off! I felt the heart break and courage of the lone mother determined to protect her own dead baby with all the layers of various animals involved. To have a rush of so many lions pass on either side of your Land Rover in the semi-darkness must have been the ultimate thrill! Even having the bull elephant suddenly appear bellowing, as if to say, “This is enough, already!” made me grin. Rob was right, this WAS a truly memorable experience! I’m happy for you.
