Oh my goodness Dan, what a beautiful collection featuring absolutely magical golden light! I love the action shots of the hyena vs. vultures, the buffalo tussle, and even the raw brutality of the lion suffocating the hyena (because I know it managed to escape). But the Skorro male drinking and the Ntsevu male on the ridge were also breathtaking captures. Well done!

Dan, This is an insane set of images and you rocked it! We love seeing all the shots you are getting with the new R5 mirrorless. The Gijima male shot is impressive and it great to hear that the Maxim’s male is becoming more comfortable – great news that he is mating with Nkoveni! The shot of the Hyena chasing the vultures is a classic and one of our favorites! Bravo!

Dan: Quite the plethora of photos. I’m curious, though: are the several, recent anonymous pics from guests? And the Gijima lions . . . from where do they come?

Some super photos, technically the buffalo shot is very impressive as the dark colours throw out the cameras metering , indeed a bride’s dress presents similar difficulty .
Favourites , the wild dog pups and the big male lions

Hi, some images convey a feeling of peace and comfort, as the male giraffe at sunset, the pregnant zebra and the elephant with the calf, or even the Skorro male drinking in peace or the relaxed Maxim male, whereas others are just the opposite, a message of tension and menace, like the wonderful approaching Ntsevu male, the Gjiima male listening, the wild dog heading for the hyena (! Why? Is it strong enough?) To the dramatic fight between vultures and the hyena, the Ntsevu lion showing the hyena his full power, the fighting buffalo, for sure a great peculiar picture. Among all, leopards are in a sort of natural world isolated from the rest of the dramas, iconic animals living apart, mating, going on with their life

So many wonderful pictures to choose from. Very hard to do. Enjoy the lions, leopard, ellie pictures. The vulture pictures are great. But i think I’ll choose the wild dog pups. They are special

Wonderful photos, Dan!
I love the beautiful, golden light in most of them.
The dogs are so cute; If I didn’t miscount I counted 14, so there must be some more somewhere close by?
It’s so great to be able to see one’s favorite animals every week on the internet. Something to look forward to to see live one day in the future again.

LOVE those wild dog pups!!!

Hi Dan, I am counting 15 wild dog pups, spectacular foto of them all together. Maxim male leopard absolutely a beautiful leopard, hopefully Nkoveni will have cubs soon. Never seen these Gijimi male lions before or maybe I have just forgotten them, but quite a huge lion. Your black and white foto of the Zebra is stunning and the reflection in the water makes it even more special.

Amazing photos! Looking at the blog is my weekly escape and builds excitement for our upcoming trip to Londolozi. I can only hope to see a fraction of this.

It was so much fun Dan scrolling through your interesting and varied images this week. With the wild dog pack and their pups in addition to the Ntsevu coalition hunting machine, you’ve no lack of exciting sightings. However I truly appreciated your images of the b/w zebra drinking and the little elephant framed by its mother.

The zebra pic is absolutely STUNNING!!!

Truly stunning pics, Dan thanks for sharing. As usual tricky to chose a favourite, but possibly the wild dog gazing at the hyena across the water hole- the light is just perfect. We are counting the sleeps ….

Fabulous photos, Dan, especially the vulture v hyena and ellie + calf ones. When I looked at this on Friday I was a bit puzzled as only the 1st one had your name on it. I didn’t want to compliment you too much in case the rest of the pics weren’t yours! But looking again today you’re on all of them, so now I can say they’re all brilliant!

Great diversity in subject and composition in this dispatch of TWIP Dan! Bravo!! And p.s., way too many brilliant choices to choose a favorite, or five!!
