Great videos this week.

Lions were regarded as the highest symbols of power and linked to the sun by ancient cultures everywhere in Europe Africa and Asia. They clearly deserve it. All antelope are images of grace and nyala make no exception. The Makomsava female is an example of a perfectly successful natural selection she must survive among many dangerous predators and take care of her offspring all alone. I wonder if one day leopard sisters will team up…

Wonderful again, thank you – James, you are such a natural presenter. Surprising to see the Piccadilly female so far out of her area, hopefully her cub will have moved with her?

A really interesting week, James. So many different and great sights!
I wonder: are you walking around on your own or together with another guide or guests?

Just amazing seeing the Lions go about their lives on the boulders from above. Loved the Elephant sighting with the sun behind them! And the Leopard walking the beach was so cool. Thanks James!

James, I loved all the safari, I hope you get the safaris 🤗

Keep them coming

Such a fantastic variety of game, with epic footage of the Makomsava female and her kill !! …just love the light at this time of the year! The greatest end to the week with leopards, lions…confusion and that awful feeling that you have been followed/watched. Super James 🙏🏻💕

That was probably one of the very best week in pictures. Thank you James. I must say that the various bird calls as we were able to watch the elephants without commentary transported me back to the bush with joy. There is nothing like that sound … so many varieties and intensities. Would it be possible to have such soundscapes along with the magnificent landscapes from time to time…. so therapeutic just only seeing and hearing the bush … and so uplifting. Just what was needed in this strange coronavirus world we live in.

Brilliant week, yet again! You all continue to amazing!

Lovely video but what makes watching it even more enjoyable is the sound of the birds calling in the background.

James I do wonder how you walk around on foot in the bush, it must heighten the senses and raise the hairs on your neck, however you truly do have the BEST job in the world!

Couldn’t agree more!

I can hardly wait for your weekly video. I get my cup of tea first thing in the morning along with my beautiful cat Zoe and watch the amazing world of Londolozi come to life. It takes me back to when my husband and I were
there. There is nothing like it in the world. Hope to be there soon! Thank you for the amazing storytelling and photos… PS really happy to know all belly’s were full… especially if you were being watched!

Great week of video- leopard walking in the water…thank you for sharing the games
