Amazing videos this week. Loved the elephants.

What a sadness to see the poor impala babies who were born to be eaten and the dead goose. At least the Tsalala lionesses and the elephants improved our mood also the hornbill chick

James, I loved the video🤗, keep them coming

ah factchecking, lovely video

Great videos. I always enjoy hearing that the Tsalala lioness and her daughter are in good shape. The mud splashing of the young elephant bull is fun to watch, and the peek into the hornbill nest is great though dad was not there.

A nice virtual safari James. Massive herd of ellies – lots of younguns amongst them. Nice to see the fat flat cats also. Thanks for that – a pleasant change in these very trying times for all of us. Be well and stay safe all of you.

Good to see the Tsalala lioness plus daughter with fat bellies. It truly amazes me that she is such an astute huntress, a solo mom! Hopefully her daughter will help her soon. Interesting facts about the horn bills…..

Hi James…a wonderful explanatory and enjoyable video as usual….excellent sightings….my heart tends to skip a beat when I see the Tsalala Queen a d her beautiful princess daughter…doing v well albeit, as you say, with a tenuous “hold” on this tiny area….she’s so pressured for territory…it a great concern….the Nkuhumas (?) are moving her way so wondering if it’s because they’re being pushed or are they just expanding their territory?…v interesting lion dynamics….thanks again James..

Always a pleasure to relive the week at Londolozi 💕. Thrilled to see the Tsalala lioness and her cub with full bellies and still doing so well. So anxious for their welfare 🙏. Eli’s and the hornbill babes just too gorgeous. Fab videos James thank you 😊

How lovely to see the Tsalala female and cub with full bellies. The hornbill nest was so interesting too and of course the beautiful Elephants 😊

Wonderful videos this week. The highlight, among many, was the Tsalala female and her cub rolling around, full-bellied, and thriving in the moment!
