The Mother of Week in Pictures

She’s your beacon of strength, best friend, confident, example-setter, counsellor, feeder, and she occasionally likes to lecture you (only occasionally). Who is “she”? She is the woman who plays a pivotal role in your life, be it your mother, your grandmother, a female guardian or caregiver. In South Africa, Sunday the 12th May is Mother’s…

The Week in Pictures : Lions in the Limelight

We’ve enjoyed a couple weeks of unique sightings and big cat behaviour across our Kruger camps. The central theme this week is – simply put – lions. There is a marked increase in lion sightings across the board, and guides within certain reserves are trying very hard to pinpoint the origins of splinter prides and…

The Week in Pictures : Eggs-actly What You Need for a Hoppy Weekend

The long weekend is upon us and the masses are winding down in preparation for a well-deserved break. We thought we’d gift you with a bumper album of images before the weekend of festivities commences. Whether you’re devouring a few hot cross buns in your gullet, hiding Lindt chocolate bunnies in secret places, spending time with…

The Week in Pictures : Bless the Rains Down in Africa

Toto clearly knew a thing or two about the bursts of rain in Africa, so much so that the band wrote a song about it.

Those moments deserve to be sung about, and currently the Lowveld is living…

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…
