The Week in Pictures : The Youth of Today

We owe you a storm of images and plenty of updates from our camps. The ‘veld is brimming with activity and the bushveld abounds with mystery. The thickets have plenty of stories to tell, and our favourite is the stories that bring promise of new life into the unforgiving landscape. When we browse through the…

The Week in Pictures : The Art of White Space in Wildlife Photography

This week for Week in Pictures, we’re going to focus on something a bit different. It’s time we scrolled through our archives and showcased our photographer’s skills when it comes to the theme of negative/white space in photography. For the next 3 editions of “The Week in Pictures” we’ve decided to give the weekly portfolio…

The Week in Pictures : Expect the Unexpected While on Safari

We can never anticipate what we’ll see scurrying and loping through the bushveld while we’re on safari. Eager safari goers arrive at their destinations with a certain level of expectation, and a tick-list of the “must sees”. The wild natural world around us doesn’t care about your safari bucket list, and constantly seeks to disappoint…

The Week in Pictures : Abstract Scenes in the Bushveld

The bushveld provides ample opportunity to get creative with your lens, and there’s never a moment not worth photographing. There are times when you’re confronted with endless open landscapes begging to be captured, and other times you’ll get up close and personal with lions on a kill. This week, we’ve decided to select our more abstract images…

Skittish Lions Feast on Giraffe Kill for Days

There are a number of resident lion coalitions and prides on Africa on Foot and nThambo’s traverse. These are the local battle-scarred kings and queens that have staked their claim on the land around camps, and frequently put on award-winning shows for guests. The ever-shifting pride dynamics ensure things are never static with our lions, and we’re often gifted…

The Week in Pictures : Big Cats Enjoy a Banquet of Delights

Hello Monday, my old friend. I’ve come to talk with you again. It’s that time of the week, when “Week in Pictures” makes a grand and startling entrance. This week we’ve witnessed bone-crunching, foot stomping, and flesh-ripping madness from our predators and thieving scavengers. The noise and absolute racket from the excitement of meal time…

Week in Pictures : People, Landscapes and Wildlife

On a weekly basis we interrupt your daily grind to deliver the latest slew of images fresh from the bushveld. The idea is to charm you with ranger’s and photographer’s awe-inspiring images of wild landscapes and its inhabitants. Let’s face it, most people need a pick-me-up on a Monday, and there’s nothing better than being reminded of…

The Week in Pictures : Kaleidoscope of Colours in the Bushveld

This “Week in Pictures” we’ve decided to source the images from the week that offer up a kaleidoscope of colours. The winter season is here and the ‘veld has taken a turn towards the brown colours and left the hues of greens behind. We thought we’d inject a bit of colour into your week and…

Cute Leopard Cubs in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve

Despite being aloof and independent cats, leopards actually make excellent mothers. These muscle-bound felines lead a notoriously solitary lifestyle where it’s “each man for himself”. Leopards aren’t pride orientated and are rarely seen keeping company with other leopards. We only see leopards together during periods of mating or when mothers are rearing their young. Just…
