Kaye's Photos from MalaMala 9 March to 3 April 2007

Hi all

Have just completed photos from my time at MalaMala, Sabi Sands, South Africa - 9 March to 3 April - some fantastic gameviewing and I greatly appreciate the rangers, Andrew, Nico, Nic and Bruce who gave me such opportunities!

This is the thread I hope - as never really confident that this will work!

Thanks,

Kind regards

Kaye

Just lovely. Your talent for the birds only grows. So many beautiful mother and baby(ies) shots. Not to mention the birth in process! Your photos uphold Mala Mala's reputation for leopard sightings. From lions to herds of rhino to cheetah, your shots are beautifully composed. The snakes, bees, and tortoises are treasures too.

Great photos, our ranger was joking that the Tjellahanga male was half Lion, your pictures give some impression of his extraordinary size.
Great pictures of three kinds of rollers is wonderful. All in all so many memories stirrd by your photos.


Dennis - I will miss you by a couple of days!

Hi everyone,

hills27 - thank you

Dennis - thanks, unfortunately not until the middle of December

CW - thanks and you are welcome

moremiles - thanks and I have a Panasonic FZ30 and the lens is to 420 I think

Carole, thanks and who wouldn't be excited, the gameviewing is always exceptional and always something new and exciting to see

spiegelcjs - thanks, no I am happy with any ranger, all do a great job

Thanks Hari, you are right, I always have fantastic safari moments which I guess is why I cannot stop returning

Thank you Lynn - I get heaps of practice with birds at home as I take quite a few! The baby buffalo being born was fantastic and my first complete birth and I was a lucky duck to see it! I do like variety in my photos, definitely not just a big 5 photographer. You are right about MalaMala's leopards, this trip I saw 20 different leopards, which is my record.

Lastly Matt, Thanks, he is a huge male though the Jakkalsdraai female is very petite. Never did see those Eyrefield Pride cubs, so hope they are all OK.

Kind regards,

Kaye

Camera and zoom - "thanks and I have a Panasonic FZ30 and the lens is to 420 I think"
What? That's it? No Canon/Nikon with four kinds of lens, no RAW processing? Maybe there is something to the theory that it is the photographer that is important
regards - tom
ps - I will be at Mala Sep 14-20, anybody?

Cheers,
Gary.

What a beautiful collection you have here Kaye. I enjoyed them all especially the Rollercoaster male and the little ellie throwing his weight around. What a huge neck on that male kudu.

I am impresssed that you know these animals so intimately and hope those Eyrefield cubs are ok too. When was the last time they were spotted?

Kaye,

I'm correct in saying the Mala Mala 'Eyrefield' pride is the Londolozi 'Sparta' pride?

One of the Rollercaoster males (whose picture is one my living room wall) was mating with one of the lionesses when I was at Londolozi in Spetember 2006.

Cheers,
Gary.

Gary, yes in the "single room". I don't know if they actually have a "single room" or whether it is a regular room (any room) that they just put a single rate on. My last night is the 19th, I leave the 20th (first night is the 14th).
regards - tom
