Great set of shots James! We love the one that Pete got of the Elephant and the texture he got in the shot is super! We added it to our favorites.

The senegal bush has been very active, it is a beautiful animal. is there a coalition threatening birmingham? I heard reports that they put 4 young males to run
Excellent article, thanks James

I thoroughly enjoyed the varied subjects of your photos this week, especially the hiding hippos and the mighty pea spider. Hoping for continued amazing and interesting sightings over the next week!

Great shots – my favorite was the elephant. I love a good close-up. Their eyes and lashes are beautiful. The lion sightings sound incredible! Thanks so much.

beautiful pictures James. Would you guys consider doing more video vlogs or even doing fb lives? Would love to see in real time drives.
Wishing to back someday soon. 🙂

James Tyrrell

Hi Gemma,
We have discussed doing the live thing but feel we can add far more impact in our current format, as there are too many variables involved in a live drive, as well as poor signal out here in many spots which makes the continuity of a sighting unlikely…

Another beautiful gallery!!!

Great stuff as always James hope to see the Nhlanguleni female turn up alive and well soon wasn’t she raising a new litter of cubs? Also have you guys seen the Styx at all this past week?

Truly an astounding collection, James. From the Birmingham males spotlight to the green pea spider and dragonfly, to the two leopards in a tree, and three rhinos in the road to the secretary birds… I kept going back and forth again and again. Thank you so much!

Hi James! Great selection of photos! Hopefully the Nhlanguleni Female is alright. Assuming that she lost her cubs? Also, any word on the Ndzandzeni Female’s new litter? Do you know how many young males and females make up the Ntsevu youngsters?
