The purple-crested turaco is very striking; don’t think I’ve seen one on your blog before? Stunning photos, especially the last one of the sunset with Nkoveni in the tree. And what a gorgeous one of the Ximungwe cub.

Special picture this edition with the leopard cub and the turaco catching our attention for long! It’s always a delight to see wildlife thriving

Great post James – demonstrates the wider diversity of what Londolozi has to offer, rather than a concentration on cats (comment coming from a keen birder 😊) 👍👍

The leopard cub is so cute and off course mommy is beautiful. Little elephant playing with a stick is so funny, as it learns how to use it’s trunk. Beautiful foto’s James and the birds are spectacular in colour. Loved the leopards!!! Last foto of the Nkoveni leopard in the fork of the tree and at last light makes it so much more stunning.

Have you guys seen anything about the Makhomsava females cub haven’t heard anythiny in ages?

Don’t recall ever seeing purple-crested turaco–beautiful bird.

Again a wonderful series of photos. I think the various versions of kingfishers are my favorite birds.

Great photos, James.

Great birds pictures today. And nice shot of Tracker Jerry. I have done many of those sits myself when it comes to birding!

Sublime……the leopards of Londolozi doing their best Oscars red carpet appearances this week! Great photos!

Awesome week again. You guys were so incredibly lucky with all the amazing leopard sightings.

James, I loved purple crested turco

This was an enchanting week in pictures and I loved each one – the cub young shy cub and the baby elephant learning to use his trunk. The young leopard asleep with her dinner. Iy is raining and cold here which makes me wish I was there. ThNk you fir sharing!! Victoria

What can I say?? .. Other than that this weeks pictures are SOOO CRISP! Each speaks for itself upon what was captured and felt during seeing the experience. The picture of the baby calf and the Leopard cub are just precious! .. The finale of the evening sky says it all. No drama. Just serenity within the Bush.

The cub photo says it all! Thanx for another wonderful week of photos.

How fortunate to see a Striped Crake James !! Super bird photos, the Turaco was one of my fathers favorites ☺️ ..I never got to find one myself though. Love the shot of the cub with mum blurred in the foreground and of course… the baby Eli 🙏🏻💕💕. Another special week to keep us ever present and close to Londolozi ! Thank you

For all the well deserved talk if leopards, the birds shone nearly as brightly!! Excellent week of wonderful and memorable images James!
