Kudu bills are among the most beautiful creatures. Lovely shots!

So many adorable babies!! Congrats to the fire fighting crew!! thank you for another great look at the wonderful world of Londolozi ! Awaiting news of the wild dogs with fingers crossed! Victoria

The Piccadilly female leopard shows us a typical Mama face! And this week really was not that, don’t know how to explain……

What a stunning compilation! I literally had to take notes to record my favorites – the upward stretched neck of the cub of the Tsalala female, the saddle billed stork, the Kudu Bull silhouette, the barred owlet and then above and beyond, the Manyalethi River – what a sere sight. The green pigeon and the Goliath heron – the composition of those two shots with fruit in one and crocs in the other – just terrific, and finally the two of the Piccadily female and her cub, the first with the female on her “throne” the second the closeup of their faces – the innocence and wide-eyed curiosity of the cub and the dangerous warning look of the female – Yowza!

Another great week in pictures. I absolutely love the Tsalala cub shot and the cheetah on the stump. And of course I am bursting in excitement to hear about the Wild Dog Pups – from your clues I am sensing they are ok? Don’t want to get my hopes up too high just yet, but fingers are crossed for the best news ever!!!

OHHW my goodness! What a way to start the day! This weeks pictures are JUST PRECIOUS!! They have brought about an unexpected IMMENSE JOY!

What an absolutely beautiful collection of images! You guys have excelled yourselves this week. It really lifts the spirit to see all these images. I’m not even going to try and pick a favourite.

Some really awesome photos this week! I love profile of the Tsalala cub looking upward and the mom and baby shots – leopard, cheetah, ellie – are all special. Thanks for bringing us to Londolozi!

So happy to hear the news about the puppies! TWIP was wonderful as usual! Thanks!

So good to see the photos of the cubs, belonging to the female cheetah and Piccadilly leopard. Additionally, your capture of the tiny elephant is heartwarming. It appears their numbers are steady and possibly growing. I wish the same was true for the big cats. Your blogs have always been informative and photographically interesting as well as educational. Continued good sightings!!

Wow! Another amazing week!

So many wonderful photos, thanks to all of you. Don’t think I’ve heard of the Ntsumi leopard before?

All lovely photos!! Thanks for holding down the camp to all remaining, and wishing you another great week!! By the way, I say the amazing news about the wild dog pack, but will refrain from commenting as to not spoil the fun for others!!

Beautiful shot of the Manyelethi River bed. Needs a matting and frame.

Thank you for stunning photos James plus excellent news re the Wild Dog pups. We’ve all grown so crazily attached to them and their parents in these unusual times and can’t wait to hear the update.

Another week of stunning pictures. These reflect the diverse but connected community at Londolozi and why it is never far from my heart. From staff working together to burn brush, families of cheetahs, leopards and elephants and the variety of birds that inhabit the trees and skies. Well done as always.

Hats off to each photographer whose images were chosen for TWIP. Some amazing captures! Like most I melt when seeing babies or young ones. Picture perfect was the young and still nervous leopard or the cheetah family. The tiny elephant was so sweet as well. So many others to mention. I never thought of firebreaks performed at Londolozi. But it makes sense. My thanks to all.

Great pics (as usual) and such fantastic news on the wild dog family
