The image of the Collared Sunbird is stunning.

Thank you so much, Lisa.

Beautiful birds, super spots and large lions, but this week my vote goes to Miss or Mrs Piggy, the female warthog emerging from her burrow.

Thank you so much, Darryl.

Wow, thank you, that’s a lovely birthday present for me this morning! A very difficult choice again this week, but my favourite image has to be Robbie’s of the Nhlanguleni cub – simply gorgeous. Good to see the pics of Maxim’s male – we saw him in February when he walked across in front of our vehicle, but our viewing only lasted about 3 seconds! You said he’s the largest male around, but how does the Nweti male compare for size? (I haven’t heard anything about him for some months).

A very Happy Birthday to you Suzanne. I am so glad that you enjoyed the TWIP on your birthday. The Maxim’s Male is known to be very skittish.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

I think they are similar in size, the Nweti Male is a tall and long leopard, whereas the Maxim’s Male is a thickset leopard.

Robbie’s Nhlaguleni Female’s cub pic gets my vote this week!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Tracey. It is a great shot.

Wow, the Maxim’s male is indeed an impressive leopard. The bird pictures are just brilliant, the colors of the bateleur eagle are splendid and one can really discern each little feather of the sunbird.
I love all the photos of all the leopards, the cute young hyenas, the warthog, the river, and not to forget the lions.
Stunning photos! Thanks.
Sometimes I think that maybe one doesn’t have to visit Londolozi at all because one can see and watch all the most amazing sightings of animals- that maybe not even your guests see- in your blogs.

Thank you so much, Christa. The Maxim’s Male is impressive. It is indeed great that you get to see everything here on a digital platform, but I think the real thing is so much better.

My favorite. Hyena pups and Collared Sunbird. Additionally I need to mention the great shot of the warthog. Of course the Piccadilly Female is beautiful. If I were a male Leopard the Piccadilly Female would be my first choice. So pretty

Thank you so much, Andrew and Daniel. The Piccadilly Female is a stunning leopard.

Some photos I wish I had taken , and aren’t hyena cubs cute ?

Sean Zeederberg

Great selection of photos Londolozi team! The one of the Piccadilly Female is a stunning example of the Sunsetbend lineage. Do you all still see her daughter or is she hard to find now that she’s independent?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Michael. We do still see her. She may be setting up territory in the central parts of Marthly.

Stunning foto’s this week in TWIP. My favorite is the Nhlanguleni cub in the tree, so gorgeous. Beautiful bird foto’s this week, bateleur and sunbird have Stunning colours. Loved all the leopards.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Valmai. The cubs shots always seem to do well and this week is no different.

Lisa Antell

Such great photos! I have to say that the one of the Ximungwe young male is my favorite this week! He is quite the poser!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Lisa. The Ximungwe Young Male is a handsome leopard.

Mary Beth Wheeler

A stunning array of images this week, Sean! It’s hard not to vote the Maxim’s male as my #1, but I’ve never seen such a fabulously colorful and regal Bateleur. That capture is my fav of the week!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Mary Beth. The Maxim’s Male is great, but I do agree that the colours of the Bateleur are stunning.

Wonderful week of predator images, but the little Nhlanguleni cub grabbed my attention a bit stronger than Barry’s Ximungwe young male. Well done Robert, although all are winners at the end of the day.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The photo of the Nhlanguleni Cub by Rob is such a stunning pic.

Marc Grawunder

Awesome pictures and especially nice to see some excellent shots of the elusive Maxim’s male. Thanks for sharing.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Marc. We were so happy with the sighting of the Maxim’s Male. It is not often that you get such great shots of him out in the open.

By far my favourite pic this week is the beautiful pic of the Collared Sunbird. How exquisite! I also really love the Nhlaguleni Female’s cub. How beautiful!

Sean Zeederberg

The Collared Sunbird is a great shot as well as the Nhlanguleni Cub.

Sean, the image of the collard sunbird is my favorite this week. The photograph really stands out.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, William. The picture of the Collared Sunbird is fantastic.

Sally Stevens-Taylor
Digital Ranger

My favorite is the Sunbird because of the colors, the contrast between light and dark, and the beauty of the little bird itself. I also loved the baby leopard hanging out looking at Mom and sibling. Thanks for these!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Sally. It is a magnificent shot.

The Nhlaguleni female’s cub is my favourite picture of the week. I look forward to many more pictures of the cub growing up and learning from it’s Mother in the future. Thank you for capturing such a special moment.
