Great videos this week. Heart stopping to see the hyena at the leopard den. Fantastic to see wild dog pups again.

Fabulous to see Makomsava and her cubs again. Also loved the footage of the African fish eagle. Another wonderful video blog, many thanks.

Awesome video — love all the detailed narration especially about how the Crocodile feeds. The stewardship of the reserve with the raking of tracks was great — good hippo dance. Enjoyed this tremendously.

It’s a testament to the magic of Londolozi that I can just watch you guys raking the riverbed and be content seeing my happy place 😊 I loved the video…so many highlights with Leopard cubs, Wild Dogs and that cutest little Plover chick. Thanks !

Great week, great videos. I love the tiny plover chick! And of course the leopard and her cubs and the wild dogs.

Yes, a very good morning to know the cubs are safe! Interesting segment on the croc and the waterbuck bull- many questions and suppositions. Thanx!

Absolutely fantastic video! What a fright! Poor little cubs… Makomsava looks like an Egyptian painting. Just beautiful. So interesting wild dogs and crocodile – maybe reptilian predators are not as fascinating as mammals but I find them really amazing. Also hyppos and gorgeous waterbuck males fight. You have a lot of coloured and diverse birds over there… all striking from the first minute to the last one.

We really enjoy your Sunday summary video!!! And the drone shots and occasional titling commentary are really helpful. But the pictures of the baby plover were extraordinary as were the videos of the leopard cubs! BTW, almost stumbling into those wild dog adults sounded REALLY scary, we don’t know how you guys don’t get a little paranoid walking through the bush! Thanks for all you do to put these weekly summaries together!

What a rollercoaster of emotions this week !! From shear terror at the thought the cubs might be killed then onto some hilarious moments ….. (James and his near flight experience), spectacular bird viewing and then the final brief, yet wonderful sight of the cubs. What a beautiful leopard the Makomsava female is ❤️❤️. Just great 👌🏻..thanks guys 🙏🏻💕

That video segment of the hyena at the leopard den is simply harrowing, even though I’d seen it previously on IG!! Love seeing the pups!! Great work again gents!
