never a dull moment in the bush. I always wonder why people come to a safari camp and just want to see lions or leopards. Tthey are certainly wonderful to see but there is so much to see and so fascinating to see the interactions between the predators and the prey, or just to see that family of East hogs running away all the babies running with tails up. Thanks for a fun blog which I am enjoying while a tornado watch is on here. Stay safe everyone. thank you Victoria

Hm those Leopards pictures… so identical. I only notice tiny differences. I’ve still got to deal with them.

Peggy Fox

Thank you James. Nothing beats a virtual safari other than the real thing.

Exciting! I’ve been loving these videos, mainly watching on IGTV. the hippo carcass/hyena episode was remarkable. We once watched dozen of crocs tear into a hippo carcass – the smell was the worst thing I’ve ever smelt! Your video brought it all back!

Thank you, thank you, James. This is a real highlight of the week for me and as I don’t look at Instagram etc it all adds to the surprise – feels like being on a real game drive, when you never know what’s going to happen! I loved the interaction between the wild dogs and elephants, and could watch leopards going up or down trees all day long (which leopard was that?) I also loved the glimpse of the sculptures just outside the camp as you returned, that really made me feel like I was back at Founders.

This video was fantastic! I feel like I’m in the Landy with you. If I can’t be there, this is the next best thing- the action is intoxicating!!

Makes me happy to see a large pack of Wild Dog… by far my favourite to see in the wild.

Fantastic video! I loved to see the hyenas and the wild dogs! Thank you for the week in video!

Fascinating and completely mesmerizing. I’m so appreciative that the “chance” involved in the tracking process is captured. It elevates the watching experience to a “you are there feeling” rather than just watching a nature show. It’s more wholistic and integrated rather than dualistic and subject/object oriented. Not to mention how James’s humility is hilarious at times!!
