The Londolozi team is making it impossible to choose a favorite image of the week, as there are just too many amazing shots. Sean and Chris, your elephant images are fabulous, and Sean, your landscape highlighting the beautiful clouds is stunning. But then, there’s the water monitor close-up and croc that are unique…. Love the big cats…. Okay, I give up and appreciate each and every one. Thank you!!

Incredibly rich and various set of pictures under the “gold” theme. It’s too difficult to pick up one, I’m over the moon for the cheetahs, they are so rare and the leopards of course. The elephants are my favourite subjects here, so beautifully melt in the rich vegetation and giving a sense of peace. Water is a main theme as well, the waterbuck is lovely and zebra, lizard and crocodile are all great pictures. The Ndzhenga male looks almost older than the Birmingham male in the last images, so deeply scarred.all animals are embroidered in golden poetry and landscapes are fabulous. Great.

Thank you so much, Francesca. It was a fabulous week for photography.

Hi Sean for me my favorite foto is the setting sun and beautiful clouds. The clouds are all different shapes and the setting sun is a stunning foto. Secondly is the foto of the crocodile with the water gushing past him. Fantastic foto’s . The others foto’s are all awesome.

Thank you so much, Valmai. The Sunsets have been amazing of late.

Tough to pick one favorite shot. The solo wild dog, stunning sunset with clouds and crocodile are my top three. Counting down the weeks until our August visit . . . .

Thank you so much, Willa. Those are some great choices. I am sure the excitement is building for your trip. We look forward to having you here with us.

I love the water monitor. But how do you know it is a watermonitor and not another one?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The shape of the heads is the most noticeable difference. The Rock Monitor lizard has a much rounder larger head. And since the water monitors spend more time in the water their skin looks a lot cleaner and is brighter green and yellow. The rock monitor is more dusty and greyish in colour.

When the quality is so high it’s always hard to choose. I love the ellies in water – but I’m hoping this or a similar scene will appear in the video, as it’s wonderful to hear them as well as see them. Chris’ crocodile is great and obviously the cats are always fab, especially the 3 Rivers with her cub. But you’ve edged it Sean, with your gorgeous sunset and clouds – just stunning.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Suzanne. I am so glad that it is tough to choose a winner as it means that the overall standard is high.

Impossible to pick one! Loving leopards so much, especially the Three Rivers female, I love the photo with her and her cub playing. That landscape photo with the wonderful clouds is striking! The elephant with his perfect reflection in the water and the silhouette of the wild dog also are also terrific. The crocodile combined with a slow shutter speed really pops out as so creative and fascinating! Great TWIP! Looking forward to next week’s already! 👍👍👍

Thank you so much, Darlene. There are some great images this week.

Oh such Beauty once again captured on Londolozi lands! Love the clouds with the setting sun–conjuring time for Sundowners! The Cheetah are stunning. But the Croc with the slow gushing water is my pic for today!!!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Camille. That pic of the crocodile is such a great image.

Great photos. I particularly like the photo of the Water Monitor Lizard – the eyes and claws are riveting.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Jeff. The water monitor lizards are such fascinating creatures and the image of it is so captivating.

Linda Rawles

What a great group of photos! I kept hitting “favorite”! Of course, any elephant or rhino picture is my favorite – ha! – but I also love the lion eye shot, the dog silhouette, the lizard closeup, the water cascading from the mouth of a croc! Bravo!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Linda. There are some great images this week and you have chosen some amazing ones.

Hard to pick a single favorite, but really loved your use of nature’s lighting in your 3 images. Also thought Chris did a great job with the crocodile image.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Vin. It has been a great week for photography. We are having such fun at the moment. Chris’ crocodile image is stunning.

Some super photos , the elephants at the water , makes good use of the “golden hour ” lighting and the croc photo is a wee bit special .

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Ian. There are some great images this week, but the crocodile pic does seem to be a favourite.

Susan Young

Sean – wonderful photography in golden skies.
Leopards are my favourite, followed by lions, elephants, cheetah and everything else.
Thank you

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Susan. The sunsets have been so stunning at the moment so allowing for great opportunities with a camera.

Michael and Terri Klauber
Guest contributor

Sean, thanks for an amazing set of images this week. We are super impressed with the scenic shots you presented. The availability of all of the Leopards in close proximity to the camp must be a real bonus for the guests who are with you. We loved the focus on the elephants too!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Michael and Terri. The sunset was spectacular so made it easy for me to capture something special. Yes, the viewing of the leopards has been so great over the last few weeks.

Paul Canales

Wow Sean, stunning array of photos, and impossible to choose a favorite! If pressed, I love the intensity of the croc, and the composition of the cheetah mother and cub is brilliant!!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Paul. Those are two great choices and seem to be the favourites.

Karen Hart
Senior Digital Ranger

As many have already said, it is nearly impossible to pick a favorite from among so many first rate photos. I love the ellies and the cats, the wild dogs are so spectacular, and the landscapes/clouds are phenomenal. Thank you so much for continuing to share the beauty and splendor of Londolozi with us until we can return.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Karen. I agree there were some great images this week and difficult to choose a favourite.

Debra Matott

This weeks picture, of course, are all stunning but the ones that caught my eye the quickest was your sunset with the clouds and Chris’s Croc pic. The colors are so beautiful. The way the water is appears in the croc picture looks almost like a painting, I guess is the only way I can describe it!

Cally Staniland

Finally a moment to catch up on last weeks TWIP and boy they are all incredible…what a way to break into the winter season…the light in all the photos is stunning, particularly the male kudu and your fabulous photo of the autumn sky Sean .
Loved the crocodile but to be honest you guys makes it so hard to pick a favorite . Just spectacular thanks to you all 💗🙏🏻
