Loved it all again, thank you. That was quite some journey of giraffe, think I counted 15? Is the young Ximungwe male completely independent now?

James Tyrrell

Hi Suzanne,
There were 15 in that shot but quite a few more off camera..!!!

That is such an incredible sighting of the male giraffes! I’ve never seen so many together, truly spectacular and thank you for all your reports.

What a stunning specimen the Othawa male is 😮….and that roar echoing across the rocks ! Fascinating new facts for me regarding the giraffe James. I always thought that the female was a lot paler than a male… is this correct as one of the young bulls looked quiet pale. Perhaps it was the light? Leopard sightings always spectacular. Thanks guys 🙏🏻💕

Thank you James for the compilation of this week’s videos in addition to the latest. The journey of male giraffes was stunning and the Othawa’s roars – one of the best sounds to be had. I assume the Ximungwe male will be given a name soon.

A really nice video James. Lovely to see so many giraffes in one place. Fascinating that they were all males. Thank you for sharing with us. Take care, be well and stay safe all at Londolozi.

What a fabulous safari!! Love the lone male calling. I was sitting in our living room and Phil was reading his e nails, and he looked up and asked if the lion was on our balcony. Leopards are always great to see hope you find out who the wounded leopard was fighting. I think giraffes are the most beguiling animals. I love how they stand and look down at you with their lovely eyes and make you want to go pet them. Thanks to a wonderful morning. Victoria

James and team, We wait each week now to get your big video – of course we get to see some of it on IG, but there is nothing like putting the longer video up on the big stream at home right now! Thank you!

James Tyrrell
