Bruce, I loved all the photos. When we were there in 2018 we saw some cheetahs. I loved the picture of the maribou stork, and the photo of weavers building a nest🤗

Weaver nests are so intricate and impressive!

Beautifully written Bruce! And the pictures are EPIC! I hope to return one day, around this time of year. Thank you for always sharing your experiences, it really brings me back to my happy place:)

Bruce, what a marvelous collection of photos. It is always to see what a lot of rain does for everyone. I have to say, however that Maribor Storks are truly awful. They look like they have been stuffed in a Dickens law office for years.!! Thanks for the great photos. Victoria

Bruce what a great week in pictures. Great to see the bush so green and all the animals taking advantage of the rain. I am sorry to say that you will never convince me about the values of Maribou Storks!! They look like ancient remains if clerks in a Dickens law firm. But the picture was nice. Thanks Victoria

Hail to the rain Gods. Life is abundant. Must really be great times at Londolozi these days. Wonderful pics. The Tatowa female is one good looking girl

Sex ration of youngsters?

For a rainy week you certainly managed to get some very nice photos! Love the heart shaped nose of the waterbuck!

Some really good photos , please tell us more about the two dog – wild dog pack. Is that male /female ?

James Tyrrell

Hi Ian,
Yes, it’s one male, one female. SO by default an alpha pair!
Here’s hoping they can somehow start their own larger pack this winter (denning on Londoz of course!)

Hopefully so, that would be wonderful. I loved the photos but the one that would go on the wall would be the weaver birds

Fabulous pictures this week Bruce, especially the hippo asserting himself and the weaver trying to sell his nest to a potential mate. Good to know the rains have continued and water is plentiful again.

These just keep getting better and better.
