Londolozi 11 March 2014 - Private Guided Photo Safari

11th March 2014
My guests and i had another cracking morning drive today at Londolozi Game Reserve and with some great weather and light. We spent some lovely uninterrupted one on one time with a great male Cheetah as he went about marking his territory and walking from one fallen down tree to another, providing us with some great photographic opportunities. We also spent some quality time with a lovely breeding herd of Elephants as they fed all around us, some only a few feet away. Then on the way back to the lodge our eagle eyed tracker spotted a leopard in a tree in the distance, on closer investigation we found a very large male leopard with a young buffalo calf kill in a marula tree, unfortunately shortly after arriving he come down the tree to sleep in a small thicket, however we will be heading back there this afternoon.

So just as we thought things couldn't get any better, our afternoon drive at Londolozi Game Reserve´╗┐ turned out to be amazing. We started off as planned and headed back to the area where we left the male leopard and his young buffalo calf kill, we were hoping for him to be up in the tree feeding, on arriving in the area we spotted him in the tree from a little distance away, so the excitement rose, as we got to the tree we were greated with one of the most awesome leopard sightings one could hope for, leopard in a tree, feeding, with stunning light and a clear blue sky in the background, the scene was set for some great images. After spending some really nice quality time with the leopard and after he came down the tree we decided to head off and see what else we could find, well what we found was fantastic, hippos in a small water hole, a small elephant herd with a very small baby, a group of three rhinos, some lovely giraffe and general game including zebra, kudu, nyala and massive herds of impala, then top top it all off as darkness fell we came across 3 large male lions, whom we spent some great time with as they went about patrolling their territory and calling into the night, a sound that echoes the epitome of the quintessential Africa

So far it has been a great private guided photographic safari for Africa Photographic Travel, if you are into photography, wildlife and looking for that extra freedom and as well as one on one photographic guidance on safaris, then exclusive private guided photo safaris are certainly the way to go.
