Wonderful look back! It is always to see the nyalas (?) in camp. As always you brighten a slightly gray world. Thank you Victoria

What happens in the case of an animal dying in the camp like the nyala bull? I would think it would have to be moved so as not to attract predators. Do you butcher it and cook it or take it outside of camp and leave it for nature to dispose of? A logistical challenge I certainly don’t face at my job… 😉

James, I loved the video that you attached to today’s 5 years ago, absolutely loved it, and all the memories. I have never seen pangolin! Maybe when we are there in 2020, and I am looking for Malachite Kingfisher, which I have never seen, also an Oryx
Black Sable, Narina Trogon bird, Bonta buck. Hope to see them all when when we return in 2020?

What a flashback- really good images and backstories. Especially like the rhino sporting the mud facial!! Thanks for your memories…..

Incredible hyena/lion video–what a sighting.
We were fortunate to have our first pangolin sighting this summer one evening on the way back to Founders.
When we left, we headed to Tswalu where they were plentiful. Totally unique species!

Very interesting to see and read what occurred in the past and hear who might still be around. Quite a hyhena ruckus with great photo’s. I can’t imagine how you must feel looking back over past years!

Hi James, great memories! Was wondering, with regards to leopard paternity, does Londolozi participate in scat collection for the DNA testing by Panthera? I don’t believe the project was in existence five years ago, but didn’t know about that now? Thanks!
