Fantastic videos this week. Amazing lion sighting. The highlight was the big buffalo herd.

It’s c0ld and wet here too in SW England – though that’s not surprising! Thanks so much for another great Week in Video and it was wonderful to see both Makomsava cubs, more than happy with just glimpses of them. Needed an extra cat fix this week so we went to Marwell Zoo, and admired their Amur male tiger (sadly the female had just died after a bad reaction to the anaesthetic during routine surgery) and a male and female snow leopard.

Great video. Good luck Makomsava and babies!

James, do you have Drone!

Hi Joan, yes we do but are now curtailing its use because we are open to guests again.

As always, just absolutely wonderful, and a great start to Sunday mornings in North America. Thanks and greetings to James, to Londolozi, and to South Africa.

This video is really Africa at its finest. Just wonderful!

A real variety in that video! Loved the Lion interaction over the stolen Impala Ram. The Buffalo heard in the water with the golden light and birds chirping was special. Of course the Leopard cubs are so precious to watch. James, can I put in my request now that you grow an interesting moustache for “Movember”?

Haha Kara we’ll see how it goes. I’ll probably have to start now!

Interesting and informative with some beautiful scenic shots!

Another amazing video. I love the variety of everything. Definitely the highlight of the week to watch the videos.

Hi James. We are loving the aerial shots and today’s was excellent of the Buffaloes. They looked like small black ants from that height! The trees and bushes are starting to green up, but the grass is very white still on today’s safari. So enjoyed seeing the Purple Heron too. A lovely virtual safari. Thank you guys! Wendy M

Hi Wendy yes it takes a while before the whole landscape looks green, particularly from the air. It will still be a couple of months…

The Makomsava female with her fluffy cubs was the highlight of your video, albeit brief. Your morning with the Buffalos was also a nice addition with the other segments. Thoroughly enjoying my armchair safaris each week!

Thanks Denise!

James and team, You’ve done it again – you made our day! It’s a Sunday ritual now! Thank you!

Fantastic virtual safari James – exquisite viewing of Senegal Bush Male and casual Hippo amongst the huge herd of Buffs! Purple Heron sighting and short glimpse of the leopard cubs was wonderful finale. Thank you.

Fabulous variety of sightings this week guys, thoroughly enjoyed watching them all again!!🙏🏻❤️ I’m sure the herbivores have welcomed the start of the rainy season and the green starting to break through. Perhaps Sean might be the only one this week who didn’t enjoy the downpour 😂

Great week in videos. So many unique sightings and captures!!

Those tiny cubbies! And Senegal Bush male and Plaque Rock and Makhomsava!
