Stunning pics. Love those puppies.


Awesome blog as always and ‘wow’ on the wild dog pups. Ten of them what a buzz. Could it be the one eared female and her mate? Looking forward to future updates. Love these blogs, many thanks Londolozi.

The Senegal Bush male is a fine photo, but the stand are the wild dogs. Fingers crossed

Ohh, the new pups! Are these from the one-ear female? All in all, it is a great week in pictures. You all are doing a fantastic job to keep me entertained, informed and somewhat helping me get over my disappointment in not being there….. thank you!

So may great shots James. The Senegal Bush male looks like the ultimate predator. Doubt he goes hungy for long. Night sky as amazing as I remember. Pups always steal the show

Sure hope that means the one-earred female Wild Dog has given Londolozi it’s first litter in a long while.

I agree with Marinda – love the pics but especially the one of the small pups! Also loved the night sky and in the foreground the lion and the road. Super. So enjoyable. Wendy M

Holy Moly! .. That Garden Orb Web Spider is HUGE! I’m to assume it’s poisonous? or not? .. And the picture of the frolocking lions with their papa standing by is WONDERFUL! .. and then when you get to the very end, to see the small tiny-tot puppies was the perfect finale for this weeks collection! It left me with such a joyful smile!

Hello James! That was fantastic news!! 😃 Longing to hear more news about the wild dogs… Incredible pictures! Interesting to hear a little about the life of a three-banded plower… Thank you for sharing!

excellent photos, you are a great professional.
I’m an enthusiast in lions, can you tell me how old the male othawa is?

Super shots this week and how exciting to have the wild dog pups denned nearby! They look so cute! We loved the night sky and it looks like a satellite streak in the top right? Seeing the Ximungwes in action is super cool – added to our favorites! 😉

A nice blog James and a nice mix of wildlife. Feel sorry for you all not being able to have guests, but maybe this is a good thing in order to do things that you can’t when you have guests. U gioe you will all be well and stay safe. Thank you for sharing with us.

Hello James
First of all, very nice pictures.
I have been following Londolozi blog for quite some time but what I am enjoying most at this time, is your videos on youtube. Since travelling is not an option due to lockdown, your videos take me to the bush virtually. In your videos, your passion for the bush literally shines through, drawing the viewer in. Your excitement and enthusiasm at the sighting of Ntsevu pride feeding on a kill at night was palpable through the video. You have probably seen lions feeding on the kill numerous times, but to see that it still gets you excited indicates how much you love your job. That is something very few people can claim. Keep it up! Looking forward to visiting Londolozi sometime in future and share your enthusiasm in person. (Any Corona specials? 😉 )
A small suggestion- Comments on the videos have been turned off. Please turn them on so that viewers can give you feedback.
