on What to expect going into winter

I would like our next visit to be in winter. We came in early autumn the last time, but July or August would be an entirely different experience.

How wonderful your flowers are! Really striking, there must be so many colours around… impala are lovely animals, so elegant and also fierce. Leopards always the top!

Thank you for the preview Patrick. The change of season is always an exciting time.

Great fotos Patrick and story on the impala Rut process. Good to see the Senegal bush male again.

I keep forgetting your seasons are opposite to ours. Here the calves will be borne soon enough from our deer. But, a question. I have not been able to watch the rutting season closely. Do you think the males manage to eat during this period? The dominant ones, I mean, those guarding the ladies? I think they will, they cannot survive long without food, I would say, but there are people here who really think they do not eat at all……..

Winter is coming indeed, here in South Africa. It‘s already pretty cold, I think. Great photos and such lovely colours to make the brown look less monotonous.
Good that there has been enough rain for the bush, the animals, the people and the table water, though it‘s sad that there has also been so much damage in some parts of your beautiful country. Luckily Londolozi can thrive.

Winter sounds like a wonderful time to visit – perhaps next time!

I too love the bush in the winter Patrick, sadly I have not been able to enjoy it for many years now as our visits to see family generally happen around Christmas time. One day I will get to enjoy those amazing skies again. In the meantime enjoy every minute for me Patrick !

We have only visited in winter–which we love! The images of the various flowers bring memories of past visits. The inpala lilies are beautiful, and we enjoy seeing the varieties of aloe.

I love the African bush in the winter time! My favorite……
