Great pics this week. Love the yellow billed oxpecker and paradise flycatcher. Classic pic of James with his mud “boots”.

Whoa – you can’t leave me hanging like that about the Wild Dog puppies – I am freaking out now! What has happened??

Thank you again for such great photos… this week there seems to be such a peace and calm that comes through… the season in changing..
The mother cheetah and her cub is beautiful and the wild dogs???? Hate the suspense… so hope they are all still with us…stay warm, healthy and safe…♥️

A really nice mix of pics for TWIP James. Hard to pick a favourite as they are all good. Interesting to see the hooves of the Klipspringer. Mother Nature surely did a great job when creating all animals. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope all at Londolozi are well and staying safe.

Great selection of photos James! Am curious to know if you all know of any active hyena dens on Londolozi at the moment? Also very interesting that the one Ntsevu lioness hasn’t fallen pregnant. I know that one of the older Othawa Pride lionesses is now around 13-years old and has never produced cubs though still comes into estrus. Wonder what causes that?

Will the Ntsevu lioness be upside if she could not have cubs?

Wonderful pictures again, all of them.
The light on the puppy is perfect and also on the oxpecker and the paradise flycatcher, I think.
I love the picture of the cheetah mom and cubs.
And James S’s muddy feet are quite impressive. Must have bee awfully cold…

Thanks you very much for the update and the great pictures as usual.
Kind regards, Tino Armando.

I’m fearful about the update for the Wild Dog pups…what is the news?

No matter the weather- you’ve posted some interesting and unique photos this week like Jame’s S Buffalo and your Klipspringer legs. I’m dreading reading your instagram feed tonight as I fear some pups are gone….. such is nature.

I just went to the Instagram feed and listened/watched your dismay to discover that 7 pups are missing. I know not to become attached but I was invested in this family’s success.. fingers crossed the three survive.

A wonderful week of photos; especially diverse in subject, content, and context! Lovely!

Hi there James T. A bunch of wonderful pics this week. I had a problem choosing which Wild Life pic to take as a screensaver. The one of the Paradise Flycatcher or the one of the Wild Life Home Sapiens sitting in the Landdrover with the muddy legs. Didn’t realize he was part of the Water Life at Londolozi. One lives and learns, doesn’t one? Wendy M

Thanks for another great week of pictures. The news about the wild dog pups is truly devastating, even though “it’s nature” I’m sure it doesn’t make it any easier no matter how hardened you may be to these types of situations.

..and what a week it’s been..great shots James! The paradise flycatcher so reminds me of my childhood in White River, we were blessed with many in the garden….haven’t seen them for years !

My heart is broken…what happened to the wild dog pups?????There were three…now?? how many?

How cute to see James Souchon with mud stockings! The African Paradise Flycatcher and Klipspringer shots are really special!

The paradise fly catcher is beautifully coloured and we have a pair here in our garden. The senegal bush male leopard is one of my favourite leopards. Loved the foto of the buffalo cow having a swim. Beautiful foto of the klipspringers hooves, looks as if they jump on their toes from one rock to another.
