Hello! Thank you for this great video! I am a fan of leopards and Mashaba female in particular although I felt for the poor impala. She was successful in spite of the marauding hyena! A pleasant view of wild dogs and spectacular zebra and giraffe they are so funny and an animal I would look forward to seeing in the wild. Hopefullythe Mashaba female will be lucky again thanks to her experience.

Thanks again for my Sunday treat! Which was the female leopard at the end?

James Tyrrell

Hi Suzanne,
Apologies, it was the Three Rivers female…

How fantastic-the journey of giraffes with their dazzle of zebra friends, captured by your camera. One of the special features of Safaris is the variety of animals available to view, many expected, but it’s the surprises that can make the day special. Thanx for the weekly virtual safari!!

Very cool Leopard footage, I felt so bad for both losing kills like that. Nice to see the Wild Dogs – has anyone seen the 2 pack and the pups lately?

Definitely an exciting morning! Any time you find wild dogs it is great and personally I always cheer for the leopards as opposed the hyenas!! Thank you for a nice Sunday morning.Victoria

Wow, there is always so much action in Londolozi. Great videos! And such lovely pictures of these huge giraffes together with the zebras. If I think of the Africa bush, it’s the picture that comes to my mind first.

Shame, the leopards haven’t faired too well this week losing their kills ! had to laugh at the hyena spooked by the Eli 😂. James loved the giraffe and zebra together 💕. Great team work guys 🙏🏻💕💕

James and team! Thanks for another fabulous week of videos! We so sad to see our Mashaba lose that kill so quickly. She didn’t even get a nibble!

An interesting virtual drive James. Feel sorry for the poor leopard losing her kill to the jyenas. So she does the hard work and they take the gravy as it were. Nice to see the wild dogs and hope all the pups survived. Thanks for sharing with us. Take care, be well and stay safe to all at Londolozi.

Mashaba does not really look like she is lactating now….did she have cubs recently, or did she lose a litter of them?

Also, when will you be posting leopard cards for Makhomsava and for Nkuwa? Still waiting to see cards for those females and also to add them to my sightings list (from August 2019)!

James do you have an update on the one eared dog and her remaining pups? At last sighting how many were still alive. Thanks
