Amazing videos this week.

Hi guys – a lovely consolidation of a great week! Always beautiful views and listening to your point of view! BTW guys to all of you, Happy World Rangers day for 31 August!!! … appreciate all you do to preserve nature for generations to come! Barry

Thank you again for my Sunday treat – while I love TWIP and all your other blogs, having the sound and motion as well brings us as close to Londolozi as we can be right now. Watching and listening to the elephants crossing the river, then quietly grazing around you – glorious!

Lovely video chalk full of Leopards which was perfect! I loved the misty morning giraffe and wild dogs. The best was seeing the Rangers sitting and watching and taking pictures – it really shows how much you love what you do!

James, I loved the video🤗

What a great week with all those leopards. You are really lucky at Londolozi. I don’t know any other place where there so many of them. I am just making a movie out of the clips I shot when I was at Londolozi last year and realize again how many of them I actually saw in nine days.

How wonderful to see such precious animals in a protected area when poachers have been ravaging wildlife. Happy elephants calves and elegant and powerful leopards and all the others … hopefully leopards will be able to maintain a genetic diversity at least over there.

I am in tears wanting to be there! Such beautiful sightings!!!! aargh!!!!!

Mr. Varty, we have been looking forward to our visit for several months. Obviously, the virus has changed our plans but we have rebooked for 2021. Our Friends, Rick and Elaine Martin, send their best wishes.. These videos and other posts are fantastic. Please thank your staff for a wonderful job. Best Wishes

“Sitting with elephants is magic in itself.” Amen brother. Thank you for sharing time with them with all of us.

Oh wow! The sights and sounds are food for my soul! Thank you for the weekly virtual game drives. I so look forward to them. I find myself smiling while watching and dreaming of our next journey to Londolozi. Thank you! Thank you!

Another glorious compilation of videos from this week. There’s something for everyone, especially leopard lovers. From my view, it’s good to see you’re making the most of this shutdown period by continuing to to explore the property and keep us up to date. Thx

I so look forward to these weekly videos. Great variety. The Elephants were a special treat.

The Elephants are delightful! It’s just so amazing to see how “tame” they act! At the last part of the video, it was almost as if the one elephant was putting on a show for you guys!
.. It goes without saying, the vivid color of the landscape is just beautiful! It brings everything together to leave you mesmerized, wanting to be there in person to experience the outback of South Africa.

What a great team you all are, bringing Londolozi to our hearts each week with these amazing game drives ! A huge thumbs up to you all …continuing to protect your area and keep us all in the loop. Happy belated Ranger Day 🙏🏻💗

James and team, We are just blown away with the videos – especially watching them on a big screen! Each set gets better and better! The addition of the drone is brilliant!

What an incredible array of videos this week!! Bravo gents!!
