Thank you again James for my weekly treat! – amazing to think you’ve now started a 2nd year of them, and they’re still wonderful.

Wonderful video full of lion activity. The Birmingham male is such an enormous lion and the sub adults are looking healthy. So good to see the flat rock male leopard, he is my favourite leopard, hope the two male leopards do not come to blows over territory. Good to see the rhino bull walking and marking territory over the other rhino’s place, gives us an idea how enormous this animal is. What type of birds was that flying around there by the grass where the lions were lying, nearing the end of the video. I could not make out what it was.

Spectacular video! I loved the frogs trill. Wonderful big cats and rhino bull. I noticed that the Flat Rock Male has long eyelashes… do they protect his eyes? The Birmingham males still look gorgeous.

A quiet virtual safari James. Nice to see the flat cats. Lots of food for the wildlife and also water – always good to see. Thanks for taking us along. Enjoyed myself.

Viewing your videos and blogs I find is very good for the soul! I particularly enjoy all the birds calling in the background

James, it’s so different to see everything green there! Of course we are only there during the winter. We were surprised that there was no interaction at all between the Rhino and the Lions. Guess they knew they met their match if they went after him! 😉

You walk barefoot through the grass, searching for frogs. The last time I did that here in Virginia(with shoes on) I almost stepped on a copperhead snake. Not worried?

James Tyrrell

A little bit, but always vigilant… 😉

Love watching all the animals that you capture on film and the photos you take. When are you coming back with daily safaris miss them loads.
