We hope you are all safe and remaining positive during these unusual times. We want to keep your dreams of travelling to Africa alive and keep you connected to nature. We thought we’d share this humorous footage from Londolozi Field Guide James Souchon. His GoPro camera was stolen by some of the curious Ntsevu Pride of Lions in Londolozi Private Game Reserve in South Africa. Londolozi is part of the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, situated on the western border of Kruger National Park.

“My first opportunity came with the Ntsevu Pride. Early one morning we found them finishing off a zebra kill and sat with them until they started to move again. The benefit of this time of year is that there is a lot of long grass around and so when they are on the move they tend to favour the easiest route through an area and that is often the dirt road. It was because of this that I could drive some distance ahead of them and “disguise” the camera in the grass next to the road, pack a bit of elephant dung around the base to try and mask the scent and then hopefully watch this big pride of lions move past whilst it videoed them from an angle that we usually do not get. With just the camera lens exposed we backed off some distance and waited for the pride to keep walking down the road.”
