I love all the photos of sunsets. The silhouettes of the animals are so beautiful.
And the photo of the moon is so clear. One could imagine grabbing the moon.

Thank you so much, Christa. The sunsets and silhouettes are always gorgeous at this time of year.

The Ximungwe young male coming down the fallen marula tree takes the trophy today! I liked many of the others, but this was my favorite! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much, Darlene. The pic of the Ximungwe Young Male is stunning.

Well done Kyle, that was such an amazing image of the cheetahs. Lots of gorgeous ones again this week, but my vote goes to Jess for the one of Senegal Bush male in the tree….if looks could kill those hyena would definitely be dead!
I’m really curious about the young Tsalala female meeting up with her great aunt, might they have been together when she was a cub perhaps? – and has the Mhangeni female broken away from the rest of her pride? It must be good news anyway if they stay together.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Suzanne. If only looks could kill. In all honesty, we are not too sure how they met up or what the interaction was like when they did, but to my knowledge, I don’t think they had ever met before. We are also not too sure what will happen if they (Tsalala Female and Mhangeni Female) meet up with the Mhangeni Pride so we will have to wait and see.

Sean, my favorite shot this week is thew silhouette of the impala at sundown. Tayla did a great job with this shot.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, William. It is a very pretty shot.

Sean, I still recall the Mashaba Female trying to fugure out how to retrieve the impala carcass she dropped from a tree which nearly landed on the vehicle. Quite a moment!

Sean Zeederberg

That was such an awesome sighting. I remember it so clearly.

So many interesting compositions this week – and beautiful sunsets! I loved the up close and personal image of the white hooded vulture. It’s not often you can see a reflection in their eye.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Chelsea. It is an unusual shot and great to be able to see the reflection in its eye.

Some brilliant sunset colour and some great portraits, but my favourite this week is the photo of the Mashaba female.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Darryl. It is so great to see the Mashaba Female.

Lisa Antell

As always, beautiful photos! Any one of the leopards is always my first choice!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Lisa.

Wonderful images this week and after much consideration, my vote is for Kate’s images of the Ndzanzeni female. I like the two equally as they are a bit different, more artistic. There were a few more that I really liked but ……

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Denise. The two shots of the Ndzanzeni Female are quite different and artistic.

Kara Taylor

I loved the close up vulture shot such great detail! Also the hornbill and giraffe.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Kara.

Sean, We are always happy to hear about Mashaba and hope that her cub is still healthy! The images are beautiful! Our favorite this week is Kate’s shot of the Ndzandzeni Female. Such a great perspective and her coat and rosettes are very dramatic!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

I really hope that she is able to raise the cub successfully. Thank you for your vote, I agree is a great image.

Valmai Vorster

Hi Sean, my favorite foto is the Ndzanzeni female leopard. Actually both of her foto’s are gorgeous. Congrats to Kyle for your winning foto. It is a special foto for sure.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

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

Carly M

Congrats Kyle! Absolutely deserved that one! The pic of the cheetahs is absolutely superb!! 👏🏻

My fave this week would be the two giraffes standing beside each other and that amazing sunset!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carly. Those are some great pics.

Ian McLaren

The sunset photo is my favourite. Having seen many of them in my life time. That depicts a typical African bushveld seen.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The sunset shots are amazing and certainly depicts a truly African scene.

Barbara Wallace
Senior Digital Ranger

So many fabulous shots this week Sean. My favourite is the blurred image of the Ndzandzeni Female. Such a different image than we usually see.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Barbara. It is such a different image and that makes it rather appealing.

Linda Rawles

Great pictures! Love the vulture and the rear view of the leopard!
