Terrific TWIP, Pete. Great spot by Rich to see the Nkuwa female in the tree. Was she in the same area as her sister Finfoot, also Nhlanguleni and her latest cub?

Great pictures! When can resist the charm of a leopard cub – the cutest of all. However, also the lion cubs and the impala lamb are so sweet.

Wow Pete, what a fabulous week of photos 💗!! The Nkuma female, the rhino, the Nhlanguleni Cub ..stunning. Some fascinating facts as always..sad to hear of the decline in Saddle Billed Stork, it was a bird that was quite familiar in my childhood. Thank you 🙏🏻💕

What fun and beautiful pictures Pete! When I get up in the morning, The Londolozi Blog is the first thing I read. It starts my day off in a refreshing way, wholesome and diverse way from the norm. Everyday is a treat! Thank you!

Great pics this week, loved the sunset! The call of the Woodlands Kingfisher is the sound I most associate with the bush !! ( well that and Lions roaring – lol)

I never cease to be amazed at the nonchalant attitude of leopards draped across a branch very high up!! It is great the birds are back and fun to see the cubs. wish we were there! Thank you Victoria

Have taken that gorgeous sunset, Pete, with the silhouette of the Kudu. Stunning pic. Will keep it for a Screensaver. We think the word “dash” for a Chameleon is wishful thinking perhaps? I think a word like “wavering” across the road would be perhaps a bit more accurate? He is a lovely glossy green, isn’t he? \Wendy M
