Love all the pictures as always but particularly today the one of the Swallows. Looking forward to seeing them back in Europe before too long – it means that summer can’t be too far away!

Hello Pete,
Beautiful photos! I especially like the picture of the Southern carmine bee-eater, the eye of the Nile crocodile! Pure art! The photo of the young giraffe was very good. Beautiful picture of the green-backed heron! Longing back that’s for sure! Thank you for sharing!

Your post is bright and beautiful this week and after reviewing your images a couple of times, I have to say a few popped for me: Zebra at sunset, croc eye and the bull elephant. I was supposed to check in to Founders on the 26 March for five days but a double fractured arm, ended my hoped for leopard cub sighting trip. So, I’ll be living vicariously through all of you and your staffs’ blogs and photos until I can book again

Pete, I loved the photo of the young giraffe, and the photo of the cheetah, and the Birmingham Lion🤗
Great work getting all those photos!

Hi Pete, great selection as always! Was wondering how the presence of the Nkuhuma Pride will impact the Tsalala Lioness and her daughter? I know they have been around the Sand River but if the Nkuhumas are set to establish themselves in what was once Tsalala strongholds, surely they are at risk? Also wondering if it might be possible to do a piece on the impact of the Senegal Bush Male’s arrival to Londolozi on the male and leopard dynamics? Dynamics of the various animals are one of my favorite things to dissect and follow, so was curious if that might be something to look forward to in the future

Hi Michael.

We have not seen the Tsalala lioness for some time now, but believe that she has been spending more time in the East in Mala Mala in and out of the Sand River. The presence of the Nkuhuma pride will definitely put pressure on her and her cub, although time will tell how far south the pride will begin to push.

Thanks for the suggestion on a blog.

You have beautiful pictures in this article. But what attracted me most was the image of the Nile Crocodile. I saw them in the zoos… but they have never been dotted with such bright green! I feel like it’s the first time I’ve seen a crocodile. I’m thrilled! Beautiful green and nice looking on a crocodile.
