There are always nifty things to see on a ride. For our upcoming trip I’d love to see an aardvark or aardwolf, hoopoe, secretary bird, southern ground hornbill, sausage tree, and – yes – chameleon. But I also continue to love my lions, leopards, elephants, zebra, impala, wart hogs, wildebeest, giraffe, . . . .

That is a great list Willa – I hope you get to see everything and more!

Kelsey that was great to see the big5 in one afternoon, but it is also stunning to see other animals as well, like you did see the chameleon which was wonderful. I loved the little elephant displaying his arrogance in such a cute way. The two buffalo bulls locking horns must of been a good sighting as well as seeing the leopard.

Hi Kelsey,
I completely agree with the plan to depart on a drive with no checklist, but to wait to see what the bush will provide. Any sighting is a gift, and in your case, besides the Big Five, you also were able to see that amazing chameleon. Thanks for the wonderful photos as well as your comments.

It is the most unexpected moments on a drive be it a chameleon or a buffalo fight, that you remember so clearly. I remember on our first visit to Londolozi we came across a baby zebra that was no more than 10 minutes. He could hardly stagger, and two vultures were waiting in a tree for the afterbirth. We sat for i don’t know how long until the male of the herd came to get them safely into the herd!!! I have never forgotten that moment and we have visited Londolozi at least times and are hoping to return soon! Victoria
