Hi Sean, I quite enjoy the variety of a round-up style virtual safari. I think both formats have their place and time. Great start to birding!

Great thanks so much, Chelsea. I will see how we can do it going forward.

Good stuff as usual Sean..see a Martial in your bird sightings?

Thanks so much, Jim. Not this year. I will try and see if I can find one and get some decent footage soon to include in one of the virtual safaris.

Sean, We loved the video and the snippets. Nice to do that once in a while. We would have liked a few more seconds with all the birds. Great work as always!

Thanks so much, Michael. I will remember that next time, maybe I will include less birds for longer. I just felt that to have that many birds it would take a really long time to get through them all, and if people are not interested in birding then they would lose interest before they got to see anything else.

Thanks, Sean, for this great virtual safari.
The whole area really looks lush and green; it’s fantastic that there have been good rains and there is such an abundance of food for everyone.
I also liked your collection of birds. I love birds and also always try to “collect” as many species as possible in the eight or ten days I am out there.

We have had good rains and everything is looking green but in actual fact the total amount of rainfall we have had is quite a bit lower than what it was this time last year.

Thanks Sean for my Sunday treat. Ellies walking through water and lion cubs playing suits me just fine. I’m happy with this format, and maybe keep the longer sightings for the special ones.
I’ve lost track with the 3 Rivers female – I thought when I saw her 3 months ago Alfie said she may have given birth recently?

Thanks so much, Suzanne. Will keep that in mind. The Three Rivers Female had given birth and was keeping the cubs in MalaMala. We are not sure what happened but she appeared to have lost them.

Sean, thank you for the updates and the video safari. I enjoyed the elephants crossing the river.

I am glad you enjoyed this virtual safari, William.

Hi Sean, I quite like the summary version of your Virtual Safari this week. The snippets allows us to see
more animals and more of a variety. The impala with their lambs and wildebeest with their calves are beautiful. Loved the lion cubs with the pride and seeing them caressing and playing with each other. Elephants in the beginning of the Virtual was stunning. Londolozi has had good rains and the river is flowing strongly and is very good for the coming winter months. We here at Kranspoort have not had a lot of rain and it is very hot here.

Thanks so much for this, Valmai. I will keep it in mind. There is so much going on in the bush that sometimes it is nice to include a bit more. We have also had very warm weather here.

Hey Sean, I enjoyed your “summary” virtual safari, especially seeing some of the 110 birds viewed by you so far, and you gave photo evidence.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the elephants dust bathe themselves, by either rolling in the dirt or spraying it over its body. The Ntsevu cubs are always fun to watch during playtime but the best clip was seeing the older cub pushing the little one away from suckling so he/she could nuzzle in for a drink – very cheeky!

Thank you so much, Denise. There has been so much going on. I might try include a virtual safari like this every once in a while.

Hi Sean, thank you for this beautiful edition of the video of the week! Elephants with calves and lions with cubs are always a treat. I guess that Londolozi is one of the best places for bird watching! I am always curious about it! There are so many wonderful species

Thank you so much, Francesca. Londolozi is a great place for bird watching, we are fortunate that we get to do it over and above everything else we see here.

Hi Sean,
really enjoyed the variety in this style. I think mixing these in with the longer profile style adds nice variety. The giraffe shadow was very cool as seen from above! Great to see all the thriving populations!

I think however you all mix it up is fantastic! Highlights of the week or a longer time spent w/ those cubs for example are both welcome 🙂

Thank you so much, Anita. I will keep that in mind and include something like this every now and then.

I loved this broader survey/round-up of what’s happening now in the bush Sean. Keep’em coming sir!!

Thanks so much, Paul. I will throw one in like this every now and then.
