I am always mesmerized by the beauty of both leopard and impala can’t really rejoice when one of the two loses… hyenas are real gangs and the snake brown eagle looks peculiar at last to me, I always admire the way nature adapts itself.

Enjoyable video safari this week. Showing impalas, waterbuck, croc and many different types birds at the water made me realize how much is going on at the same time. I was engrossed watching the leopard moving quickly while hunting and the young male lion dragging it’s warthog kill. One of my dogs did not like the sound of those hyena!

What an interesting week again. The video of the brown snake eagle eating the snake is really great. And the hyenas following the lion, as well. And of course, my favorites: leopards. Thanks for the great videos. Every day one of the best things of the day: seeing what’s going on at Londolozi.

Oh, I could watch the Plaque Rock female all day……re your comment about the hyenas not risking themselves against the lion, do you think that they flourish because Londolozi has such a large population of leopards which they can steal kills from?

What a spectacular week with such a variety of sightings!! The Brown Snake Eagle was quite remarkable to watch again. Thanks James ❤️🙏

That was packed full of excitement! I can’t believe those Hyena didn’t have a go at the Lion but you explained it perfectly! Thanks !

OMG- the videos of the brown snake eagle and lion with his warthog were unbelievable! I watched the eagle devour the snake in sword swallowing fashion and then he caught and ate a second one. What are the chances of viewing that? And then the lion carrying his warthog meal , attracting the army of hyenas, eating, resting, to finally disappear…. stunned that the young lion wasn’t attacked/forced away. Truly amazing drives !

Hi James! That is the young Nkuhuma Male. He’s now in the northern Sabi Sands. Have you all at Londolozi seen any signs of the young Styx Male recently? Thanks a bunch!

James Tyrrell

Thanks Michael, yes confirmed by a number of source. Thanks for the update, now I know what to look for.
The Styx male was together with the Nkuhuma male in central Londolozi a couple of weeks ago but we haven’t seen him since then.
Best regards
