It’s Monday 23rd July 2018 and time for the photos to do the talking

I do hope that you are well, sitting comfortably and have of course had a fabulous weekend. So what news from the Luangwa Valley? Well this week I am going to try not to talk too much and instead I am going to let some incredible photos of a leopard-kill do the talking. Last month we had Marie and Denis Grenouillet stay with us up at both Tena Tena and Nsefu and over their stay they had some incredible sightings, however this amazing daytime leopard kill really was the highlight.

They witnessed this battle between a relatively small female leopard and this rather large male impala from start to finish. Whilst it is always sad to see an animal’s life ending let’s also remember that this is nature and survival and at the same time there is a beauty to the battle and the life that is given to the leopard as a result.

So for this week over to these incredible photos:

Marie and Denis thank you so much for sharing these with us and for those of you who are interested take a look at their website, it’s full of wonderful wildlife images from around the world on

Other than that it’s all been happening up at Mobiles with a whole host of incredible sightings including lions, loads of elephants and even an aardvark! Kanga heads back up there next week so I am sure we will have more stories coming back to us. The rest of the camps have also been having some amazing sightings which I am not going to go into too much this week as I am running out of time but just a little update from the cute fluffy side — there are hyena pups up at Nsefu which are always just wonderful to watch.

So before I find myself delving into more tales of the bush I am going to whisk myself away and wish you all another fabulous week ahead with plenty of smiles and laughter and as always don’t forget to look after each other.
