Leopard, lion, rhino, cheetah, elephant and buffalo… these are just a few of the many animals that visitor Gerard Cappello got to see during his five day stay at Londolozi. Being an avid photographer, and in the company of guide Talley Smith, Gerard was able to capture reels of beautiful photographs.
Below are three of the amazing sightings he witnessed in July. Scroll below and tell us what you think.
Buffalo vs Lions
Two young lions of the Sparta Pride stare intently at a herd of buffalo from their vantage point on a eroded drainage bank. The lions soon plucked up the courage to chase the buffalo but it was not long before the buffalo decided to get revenge! This back and forth chase lasted for over an hour.
Watch this video taken at Londolozi of lions taking on buffalo. Do you think they succeed? Watch to find out!
Two cheetah provided visitors with a wonderful sighting. They proceeded to walk along the roadside, side by side, as if in deep ‘conversation.’
Mother and cub affection
The Malilwane Female leopard who is seldom seen (her territory overlaps onto neighbouring reserves) was spotted in Eastern Marthly along with her cub. The female gave her cub a few good licks and rubs with her head, providing yet another amazing sighting…
The Female is the daughter of the Campbell Koppies Female and Gowrie Male.
