Beautiful array, Dan. Love the birdies and bushes. And seeing one of the photos came from Greg Pingo made me smile, as he & Equalizer were our ranger/tracker for our first two visits in 2018, 2019.

Thanks Dan, especially for the woodland kingfisher image. They are such beautiful birds, and I love their melodic song, but I’ve never managed to get even a half-decent photo of one. Maybe when I’m back in November I’ll get Alfie on the case!

Dan, hope your travels were awesome! We loved riding with you and Freddy! Thanks for the reminder of how Londolozi changes throughout the year. We were lucky to catch the knob-thorns! We are still editing and reviewing all the great wildlife images we got with you and we plan on submitting some for the blog! Thanks again!

Thanks Dan for the lovely article on spring. >t home, spring is the best season for me, with all the colors exploding after the drab winter colors. Having just come back from Londolozi, I really enjoyed the first signs of spring in South Africa, so many blossoms coming out and birds starting their nesting and breeding business.
Lovely time of the year.

Loved the different trees blooming know and bringing with it lots of nectar for the birds. Seeing the Woodland Kingfisher, reminds me of the Woodland Kingfisher who breed here in our tree on the reserve, and had two chick’s. I took fotos of them while the mother was feeding the one chick. The Violet-backed Starling has the most beautiful colour, especially when they fly off in the sky and you can see the deep bright purple.

Thanks for your descriptive article Dan as to why you love spring. The sunset photo is stunning as well as the giraffe nibbling the tender buds on the tree. Next year I’ve booked for early October and look forward to the differences in vegetation, trees, flowers, birds and weather. Saying this however, anytime staying at Londolozi is the best time!

Thank you Dan! i love to watch all the activity around the Weeping Boer Bean and Sausage trees. There is truly a hive of activity..

Dan, thank for the beautiful pictures. Spring time to me is the time for new beginnings. New flowers, new births, and a refreshing air.
