Happy to see the re-emergence of the Ndzandzeni Female –with the added potential bonus of cubs. Good luck with the tracking Sean!
Once again–fantastic variety of images. I too enjoy viewing elephant calves and following the graceful giraffes.

Thank you so much, Vin. It is such exciting news. We will work hard to try to find her den.

Well done Kirst, I agree it definitely is my choice as well! Now it is so terribly difficult to choose. I’d say cheetahs or leopards but the image that caught my heart immediately was the little zebra foal shivering under the rain. It is so sweet and looks like a small frail creature in the immense savannah. So that’s my choice

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Francesca. Kirst’s photo was stunning.

Sean, my favorite this week is the head shot of the Mawelawela Male.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, William. That is a good choice.

Once again a superb selection of photos, but this week the portrait of the Mawelawela male, showing the wear and tear of life in the bush does it for me.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Darryl. That is a great choice.

All the photos are fantastic yet again, but this week I’m going for the one of Ndzanzeni as I know how difficult it is to find her. Good luck Sean in your search for her litter, very exciting news. She seems to have lost all her litters since Tortoise Pan and I have my fingers and thumbs crossed for her to bring another cub to independence (ideally a female this time!)

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Suzanne. She sadly has been rather unlucky in raising her cubs so we hope she has a bit more luck with this litter.

The leopards of Londolozi are just so amazing! I cannot say this often enough. They are just perfect. And you are so lucky that there are so many different individuals and all these lovely cubs one can watch.
However, also the other pictures are wonderful: Chris’ Saddle billed stork – such lovely colors, the elephant baby, the eye of the lion, the giraffe. The crocodile’s eye certainly sends a shiver dow my spine as well. They are somehow such creepy creatures.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Christa. We are spoilt at Londolozi with the leopard viewing.

Love them all! But, I will pick my winner—Nkoveni Young Female on the fallen marula tree! Beautiful in every way! A close second is the crocodile close up—fascinating!
Thanks for sharing!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Darlene. That is a great choice.

Thank you so much, Marcia. Dan’s elephant pic is great.

Super exciting news about the Ndzanzeni Female! Has her territory shifted more off Londolozi or is it just a matter of exploring the area in which she holds stead? Also, any recent sign of the Mashaba Female’s cubs? Great selection as always Londolozi team

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

It is great news about the Ndzandzeni Female. She has shifted slightly but holds territory in the southeastern parts of Londolozi.

Sean and team, Really amazing images this week! The creativity and unique ways the shots were taken is just inspiring and has us wanting more! The Nkoveni Female experience, and the elephant image are really super. the Senegal Bush Male image is unique and the Cheetahs on the lookout are perfect. No clear winner this week, but thank you for bring us back to the place we love!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Michael and Terri. There was a great selection of images this week.

You’ve made it almost impossible to choose a favorite this week as every image was special, especially seeing Kigelia’s newly independent female. She looks like her mother in my opinion. The leopards were the dominant group and as much as I love seeing them, my vote this week goes to Kyle’s soaked zebra foal. Waterlogged, this little one looked so forlorn. I was also surprised by his seemingly wavy coat. Terrific job everyone and a special congratulations to Kirst for her adorable leopard cub , peeping over the boulder!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Denise. Leopards were prominent this week. But I agree that Kyle’s zebra is fantastic.

Congrats to Kirst for that gorgeous foto of the leopard cub. Today my favourite foto is the Ximungwe cub lying by the river bank. He is so stunning.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Valmai.

Irene Henkes
Digital Tracker

hahaha, the Ximungwe young man is a funny guy. Big ears, by the way! Or is he still growing into them?
The baby ellie and the baby zebra are super cute as well………..

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

I think it is just in the image that it makes them look rather large.

I love the little baby zebra all wet! He is so cute! Congrats to Kirst for TWIP win for May!

Sean Zeederberg

The zebra foal is a great shot.

Chelsea Allard

So many beautiful images this week as per usual. Until seeing the close up of the lion’s eye, it never occurred to me that lions have round pupils like us and not crescent shaped ones like domestic cats. Also loved the crocodile detail.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Chelsea. Yes, the lion’s pupil is round similar to a human.

Carly M
Senior Digital Ranger

Ahh such beautiful pics!! My favourites would have to be the starling, the mum cheetah and her cub, that beautiful shot of the Nkoveni female and that sweet baby zebra foal! All so beautiful though!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carly.

Ann Richardson Berg
Senior Digital Ranger

I really enjoyed watching The week in pictures! A fantastic variation of the pictures!
I especially liked the Burchells Starling, the beautiful Giant Kingfisher, the eye of the lion, so beautiful! and the cool new Leopard Kigelias daughter laying resting in a three… and finally the sweet soaked zebra foal!
The winner for May , lovely photo Kirst Joscelynes had taken!
Thank you for the week in pictures!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Ann.

Oh my goodness……each photo is better than the next! I always love the leopards the most, but the drenched young zebra foal is especially wonderful this week!

Karen Hart
Senior Digital Ranger

It is always difficult to pick a favorite as you always provide stunning photographs. I would have to say the baby zebra is my favorite of these, followed very closely by the Kigelia female and the cheetahs.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Karen.
