The Week in Pics : Let There be Light..Footed Cats

A new week has breezed past our well-worn Week in Pictures path. I feel that we weren’t given much warning that yet another Tuesday was fast approaching.  The past week, we’ve been fumbling around in the dark, thanks to a few government-issued power cuts. Unfortunately, our provider (Eskom) hasn’t realised that we’re not big cat…

The Week in Pictures : Minimalist and Monochromatic

For the “Week in Pictures” this week we’ve decided to showcase images that fit into either the minimalist or monochromatic category. These unique and varied images make us look at life in the bushveld with new eyes. Our photographer’s seek to capture different perspectives when it comes to images, and we’re pretty impressed with the results. We’ve furnished you…

The Week in Pictures : A Feast for Your Eyes

We’ve been a bit delayed with our launch of this week’s “Week in Pictures”, but we’re sure our photographer’s mesmerising images will more than make up for our tardiness. Yet again we’ve enjoyed a veritable feast of sightings. From leopard kills to herbivores gorging on greens, and lion cubs practicing their take-down techniques; we’ve witnessed…

The Week in Pictures : Hello Kitty

Last week we enjoyed an array of sightings, and there were no dominant species that stole the show. Hints of cats, overt displays from playful elephants, and a flurry of plains game provided a unique mix of highlights for last week’s “Week in Pictures”. This week our common denominator is…Cats. The creeping cats decided that…

The Week in Pictures : A Mixology of Sightings

The rains have arrived! The Lowveld’s already flourishing landscape was treated to drinks courtesy of the water-laden storm clouds. The clouds were threatening to unleash their open-bar attitude and throw liquid at all terrestrial creatures. The storm clouds eventually declared open-bar and released their rains. When the rains hit, you can smell the bushveld, feel…

The Week in Pictures : Elephants Gorge on Marula Fruits

We trust that you’ll forgive us for not delivering last week’s edition of the Week in Pictures. Today we’ll make it up to you with images of sunsets smouldering on the horizon, stolen moments with voracious predators, colossal and commanding giant herbivores, and vain plains game zigzagging across the verdant emerald landscapes. We’re still in…

The Week in Pictures : Avian Delights, Big Cat Carnivals, and Lush Landscapes

The safari industry refers to the summer season in Kruger as “emerald season”, and for good reason. When the rains pelt down and smother the dry landscape with water, the bushveld awakens from its drab slumber. Those bland branches give birth to plush greenery, and migrant birds flock to the region for its ample supply…

The Week in Pictures : Cool Cats and Amber Sunsets

A clear theme for “Week in Pics” has emerged. One sideways glance at the slew of images from our guides and photographers is all you need to figure out the common denominator : CATS. Included in the portfolio of leopard and lion images, there are pictures of charismatic sunsets and general game, which always provides…
