In this week’s virtual safari, we have a brief but great sighting of the Senegal Bush Male, perched upon a termite mound. Thanks in part to a few kudus who must have seen him as he ascended the mound to get a vantage point on a cool cloudy morning.
Time with elephants is never wasted, as we follow a large herd moving through the open crests feeding on the small shrubbery.
And lastly, two of the Ntsevu Female lions, both of which appear to be mothers of the new additions to the pride, with full milk pouches. Near to where they were believed to be keeping the cubs we decide to stick with them hoping to follow them back to the cubs.
Enjoy this Week in Video…

Although I’ve not seen him in the flesh yet, the Senegal Bush male reminds me a bit of the Inyathini male – both have that “don’t mess with me!” stare.
The leopards and lions at Londolozi are just awesome . Thanks for the video.
It’s great to have a daily safari at least a virtual one.
I enjoyed your relaxing video this week Sean, watching the Senegal Bush male atop his lookout, perhaps guarding his kill from an interloper. Viewing elephants always makes me happy, especially when the herd includes very young calves. Sometimes their grazing becomes quite mesmerizing.
And then the Ntsevu females, it seems this pride just continues to produce cubs, but are these the subadults giving birth, or their mothers? Also, do you suppose the Birmingham males are still siring the cubs, or could an Avoca male have taken liberties with the girls? It’s anyone’s guess at this point.
Rumor has it your baby arrived. Congratulations!!
Fantastic video! I appreciate all the characters, leopards and lions are always welcome , the elephants were also a top view, the joung male that tried to nurse from the old female made me smile… maybe he tried to form a bond with her?
Hope to see the lionesses cubs! Thank you
Hi Sean it was good to see Mr grumpy ,Senegal bush male again. Loved the elephants feeding and watching the little ones. Hopefully soon we will see the lionesses cubs as both have suckle marks.
A nice drive Sean. A good sized herd of ellies. Love the one that pulled down the branch, but didn’t touch any of it. The trees take a beating from the ellies don’t they. Cats and ellies – all good. Thanks for sharing.
Sean, it was great to see that super strong male leopard. He’s got all the bases covered for sure! We were wondering if the elephant that took off the huge branch was leaving it for the young ones to get to? Also really cool to follow the lionesses on their hunt!
Brave little Drongo with those elephants. Amazing the differences in size……………….
Thank you for a lovely vlog again!
Kunyuma (Senegal Bush Male) still looks wonderful, he’s getting up there in age but what a special leopard from a special mum
Super blog Sean ! Looking forward to seeing the Ntsevu cubs ..perhaps in next weeks round up of the week 🙏🏻❤️
