Thank you for this report Chris of dusting off the Camera Trap. I’m looking forward to eventually seeing some interesting behavior be animals that pass by, or if we’re lucky, some amazing big cat footage.

Interesting article, Chris. I wonder who else is passing your trap in the future.

The Nyals take-down photo was incredible!
I laughed out loud when I saw the giraffe legs.

The camera traps will be interesting over the next few weeks or months if you keep them up that long. The night shots will be exciting to see. I can’t wait, thanks Chris.

Chris the camera is really something special. Here were we stay in a reserve, they showed us there was a leopard walking on the camera early in the morning hours. You never know who is walking around and that is a genius way of finding out. Thanks for inspiration of putting the cameras back up to see what’s going on in certain places of Londolozi.

I love these camera trap adventures! We’ve even tried the same at home – and we’ve never gotten a leopard either, Chris (that’s be pretty shocking in California!!) I look forward to your continuing efforts!

Love the camera trap. So sorry we won’t be back this year but hope for the next. We certainly enjoy the blogs and virtual safaries.

An interesting blog Chris. Sort of neat to see what is going on during the night hours. Thanks for sharing.

I remember Andrea’s camera 📸 trap, hopefully this can be a more regular feature perhaps in places you don’t visit as frequently ?

A serval or caracal…
