Merry Christmas Londolozi and a Happier New Year of Traveling to All!!!!!

Absolutely hysterical!
Video work continues to be impressive!
Happy Holidays–see you in July!

Merry Christmas to all of you, too! What a nice video about Santa Claus.
And fantastic pictures of the leopards, the hyenas and the hornbills. It is a pity that those young impalas get killed in such numbers. Though, of course, the leopards need to eat… And how great the video of the elephants chasing the hyenas is. I wonder: do they ever, when they get that angry about hyenas e.g., attack one of your cars instead?
Thanks for all the videos.

James, I a video🤗

Thanks for most amusing blog and reminder of the the fabulous experiences and sightings in the year that was – it’s almost over so let it go! Good wishes to the Team Londolozi for better times in 2021.

It will have been a lot of fun, making this video………….. 🙂

Thank you all for our daily dose of pictures and stories which cheered us thru not only the lockdowns, but the horrors of the election in the United States! you were the first thing I looked for in the morning. We are hoping that by the end of 2021 or early 2022 we can once again make our way to Londolozi. we wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Years and keep sending us all the news!! Victoria

Thanx for repeating the Santa video once more. It always brings chuckles, especially to those of us who are once more back in lockdown ☹️ Your second video was exceptionally good- watching the Ximungwe male first lose out to an Impala and then a quick victory in securing a lamb as well as watching the ground horn bills attack the ground with a seeming verosity, scoring frogs and then a little snake- a great way to start a simple/quiet holiday. Cheers to all of you!

Merry Christmas to all the wonderful people of Londolozi!

Didn’t know Father Christmas was such a weed. Did you ever find him? Or have you found a red suit with some bones? Thought the reindeer might have gone looking for him. Shows you that the North Pole didn’t miss him either! Wendy M

Ho ho ho great video of St Claus!!! Merry Christmas to you all and all the animals and plants

What a great Christmas video. So funny and great snippets of the animals there. Thanks.

Very Cute! But who played the part of Santa……….hmmmmm………

Great video – well done and Happy Christmas to you all. Thanks for all the wonderful pictures and videos.

Fun Father Christmas video! Looks like you had a ball making it! Merry Christmas!

Was so delighted to see the Plaque Rock, Merry Xmas to you and the entire team of rangers and photographers! 🎄🎁

I Wish you all Mery Christmas. A lot of joy and happiness. 🎄

Loved the Santa video, and the Week in Video was incredible, talk about action-packed! Apart from the Plaque Rock and Ximungwe young male, the highlights were the ellies chasing the hyena and the hornbill catching the puff adder.

James, Merry Christmas to you and the whole Londolozi family! Loved the videos and the Santa one is a true classic! We are really looking forward to putting 2020 behind us. We are most looking forward to see all of you mid-year! Best to all!

I guess Santa made it out safely as he was able to travel the world and leave presents for all the children who were so eagerly awaiting his arrival. Thanks for the good wishes and I wish each and every one of you a safe, happy and prosperous 2021. Loved the videos. Thanks for sharing with us.

Merry Christmas, belatedly!! The Santa video was epic, and James did a great job keeping a straight face throughout! I don’t want to ruin it for the kids, but I’m guessing Santa was played by Boyd!!

Haha Paul he wasn’t actually. Santa was played by two different characters. Care to have another guess?

Ahhh!!! I can’t place the the “heartier” version of Santa, but the “slighter” version could be Pete, or maybe perhaps, you James!!!

Wow what a great video – all that Leopard action with the Elephants and Hyena – very exciting. Hope everyone there had a fantastic Christmas and wishing you all a Happy New Years!
