Great videos this week.

Agh shame James … but you gave us some pretty amazing footage anyway. And lots of interesting videos and facts as well. A lovely programme to watch on this pre-second lockdown in the UK on a very cold wet and dull day. Again, loved the bush sounds too.

Ellies drinking and leopards going up and down trees – ah, bliss, could watch that all day. (sulking a bit though as should have been at Founders right now). Is the Flat Rock male the likely father of the Piccadilly cub?

Amazing footage! Can’t wait to see the The Leopards in person.

Great video James! All of the sightings were amazing. The Leopard losing the kill and almost falling out of the tree is very exciting as I picture it in my mind (sorry for your lens troubles, you have to just laugh it off 😂)

That could be the perfect film, but it was also very interesting, interactions hyaena and leopards. Thanks for show us.

Great videos, James. Thank you all very much for writing the blogs and making such wonderful videos and taking so many beautiful pictures. All of them are great, today I liked best the one with the elephants coming up from the riverbed and the leopard on the tree right next to them. So great!

OK, so yes, seeing the female drop her kill and almost fall out of the tree would have been amazing, but I am not the least disappointed with the close up, slow-mo of her hoisting the initial bit before the action. Great footage-loved it! This whole video was truly special-thank you!

Hi James, Good video. Is it possible to include (discreetly) some metadata about the Camera and lenses and, if possible, some GPS data?
Why doesn’t the Piccadilly female have a local African name?
What is/are the local African languages?

What a leopard week!!…with some amazing footage shared with the Eli’s and the hyena. Shame that you weren’t able to share that last dramatic scene of leopard and kill falling from the tree but hey, I think you deserve to keep something for yourself sometimes. Certainly the bit you captured was enough for us to know that the leopard was struggling to maintain her balance. I’m still amazed that The Piccadilly female and cub stayed so close to the flat rock male..would she not be concerned for the welfare of her cub ? Great week James 😉and good luck getting photos of the 1/2 collared kingfisher 💕🙏🏻
