Hi Sean these foto’s are stunning especially the leopards ones. That young Ximungwe male cub with the spec in his eye, is really a stunning leopard. Loved the foto’s of the three lions cub, so gorgeous indeed. My goodness 14 little ostrich chick’s, that is so cute. Ntsevu male sub-adult is going to be a majestic lion when fully grown.

Amazing photos! All of them. Thanks!
I love the oxpecker.
And obviously, it’s baby-time at Londolozi. Aren’t they cute, the little cheetah cubs, the young lions, the ostrich chicks and the Ximungwe Female’s adorable young male cub? His gaze is indeed special and he is such a good-looking cub.
I wish I was there to see them all again, adults and youngsters, lions and leopards and elephants and birds and….

It is indeed seeming like it is baby-time here. There is so much young life around, and probably more to come in the near future too. Hopefully, you will be back again soon Christa.

I can’t believe the beauty and variety of this week in pictures! So many big cats and cubs… and beautiful birds included ostriches that are among my favourite. Great elephant eye and landscapes shots. The big cats pictures have something special especially the ceetah cub… a real treat!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Francesca. The variety this week was great to see with so many youngsters around at the moment.

What a fantastic display of photos this week team Londolozi! Ostrich chicks, so good to see again, and fingers crossed they make it to adulthood. The photos of the cheetah and leopard cubs were especially good to see , but I must say I was most taken by Jess’s elephant image, that soft, gentle light framing her gaze into the unknown. Elephants are expressive and this photo proves it in my humble opinion. Thanks everyone for sharing!

Thank you, Denise. It is indeed a great selection this week. Jess’s elephant shot is fantastic.

Looks like Canon is dominating the photography scene with some great shots! And also the mirrorless Canons are beginning to be prolific! Nice Kingfisher Kyle and we are ever so hopeful that the Ostrich family chicks survive!

Bob and Lucy, yes Canon seems to be the ranger’s choice out here at the moment. Mirrorless is certainly going to be the way to go soon if not already.

Lots of cats and many younguns Sean. Beautiful shots of all of the wildlife seen on the drive. Thanks for sharing.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Leonie. This week was filled with cats. Many of which all have cubs of varying ages now.

Carly M

Beautiful. My favorite this week would definitely be the cheetah and her beautiful cubs (and the graceful looking elephant).

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thanks, Carly those are some good choices. Cheetah cubs are the cutest.

Another fantastic TWIP- with special cheetah cubs, amazing. And the leopard cubs seems to do it very well- Ximungwe young male is so exciting. Thanks for sharing.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Jutta.

Sean, we agree with you that the Ranger team is elevating their game with these incredible images. It’s very exciting to hear about the ostrich chicks. We remember when there was just one lonely ostrich on the whole Londolozi property! Our favorite shot is the last one of the Ntsevu Sub-adult male at the watering hole. Beautiful lighting and perfect timing Jess!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Michael and Terri. The Ostrich chicks are very exciting we will try our best to put a story out on them soon.

Hi Sean, I loved all of these photos, they are just fabulous. My favourite is the mother elephant, she really touched my heart. Thanks to you all.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you, Barbara. The mother elephant is a great choice, she is a favourite of mine too.

I’m a little behind on the blog, but boy was it worth waiting till I could spend time enjoying this week in pictures.
Incredible photos and congrats to you all. Spectacular leopard shots, particularly of the Ximungwe female and her very handsome cub! Can’t pick a favorite as they are all tops but just wonderful to see the baby ostriches and the cheetah cubs. Very special indeed. Thanks you all 🙏🏻❤️

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Cally. It was indeed a great photographic week had by all. Glad it was a good way for you to get back into the blogs.

What a terrific bunch of photos this week! Each one better than the last. So glad to see cheetah cubbies! And is there any possibility that Nweti male is related to Nyelethi male? His legacy seems to be those jaguar-like spotted rosettes!
