Dan, my favorite picture this week is the crocodile with its mouth open waiting at the bottom of the waterfall. Just your typical opportunistic croc waiting.

I don’t often reply to other trackers , but I thought exactly the same .

WONDERFUL Crocodile picture!

Dan, thanks for a great post and updates on all the lion activity. Your images are beautiful. we love the image of the Plains Camp male at the end! Very impressive mane!

My favorite picture this week is the one of the Goliath heron.
Having said that, all the other photos are also great.
Thanks for sharing.

Great THWIP Dan! My favorite is the croc-shot! So perfectly captured! I close second is the close up of the Nkoveni female descending the Marula. I’m not sure I’ve seen a shot like this previously, as typically they are from a further distance!

The croc pic is so cool! Also love the tusker…so impressive! Happy Weekend!

Dan your foto’s are all stunning, the Plain Camps males are truly beautiful specimens. The elephants eyes and long eye lashes is something else. Looks like the wild dogs are flaging their tails in defeat, but actually they are hard at eating their kill.

Terrific photos this week Dan, especially the elephant details and Xinzele. I couldn’t believe the Mhagene female is 15. I saw her with the pride of 16 in 2016…. It’s good to know the younger members of her pride are taking care of her, although she is quite thin.

Thanks Dan for your TWIP. I haven’t heard of the Munghen pride before, and would be interested to hear some more details.

I haven’t read these for quite some time, so several of the lion groups are new to me. I would love to see the family trees of the different lion prides, along with info as to what areas they came from and what areas they tend to inhabit on the Londolozi property. I remeber you did one of those in the summer of 2022 to 2023. Is the Tsalala female still hanging about. Did she ever mate and have cubs?
