Beautiful video i wish I was there

James, Keep them coming🤗

Great video! The elephants look so peaceful from above, pure relaxation just to watch them. I have never seen a European roller inEurope, maybe they stay in Poland or the Baltic States indeed.

Always look forward to your videos James…..full of knowledge and fun ….one never quite knows what’s coming “around the corner” when one’s on virtual safari with you!….Yay!

Thoroughly enjoyed your video this beautiful Sunday morning- trust the siblings hooked up with the rest of their pride!!

Wonderful video safari this morning and as usual educational.

The two elephant calves are so cute and they are don’t know how to use their trunks yet. Loved the lions and the two that got seperated from the pride, hope they find the pride soon. Wonderful to see so many herbivores together, they look out for each other as there are more eyes looking for predators. Beautiful bull giraffe, so gracious. Good video, thanks James.

Hello James. Another marvelous week in review, Especially liked the long eyelashes on that huge giraffe, the protective elephant mom and the regal eagle (sorry!!!)! Was a bit concerned when, as you described hungry lions, were so close to your vehicle. I guess you weren’t too tempting a morsel. As for baboons, I remember when I was in Zimbabwe, being absolutely terrified of them. Weird that they frightened me most. Cheers and thanks.

The sounds of the birds in the background almost make it seem as though we are right there with you. fantastic.

A really nice mix of wildlife, both feathered and furred James. Thanks for sharing. Send some of your heat over to Canada please. Be well and stay safe.

Wonderful video this week James, chalk full of insights and information, as per normal!! Keep them rolling sir!!

Fabulous filming – thank you so much! Wish we were there!

James makes me laugh! Can’t believe you missed that eagle shot! 😉

Nice video

What a bunch of lazy lions 😅 ! So interesting to learn about the Tamboti tree (spelling ?)…it reminds me of the Manchanell tree in the Caribbean which is super poisonous.. and certainly not a tree you stand under in a rain shower as will cause terrible burns and even loss of eye sight…yet some birds and land crabs feast on them with no affect. In fact the locals have to spend days purging a land crab before they attempt to eat them. Loved the protective Eli’s as always. Think you see more of the European roller than I have in awhile in the Mediterranean. Super James thanks ❤️🙏

It was a incredible week again. Awesome seeing this huge pride of lions. The miss of the eagle shit though 😂

stunning as always
