Week in Pictures : The Abstract and the Amusing

There are many different ways to photograph the mundane. With the right light, a unique angle and an emotional look from wildlife, it is quite possible to turn a mundane scene into something spectacular.

Week in Pics : Lions in the Limelight, Birds in the Daylight

The week before last we enjoyed a surfeit of leopard sightings at our camps and lodges. Last week the leopard sightings dissipated, and our powerful predatory lions stole the limelight.

The Week in Pictures : Kruger is Crazy with Leopards

This edition of Week in Pictures we concentrate solely on the wonders of the Greater Kruger, a region comprising mixed zones of vegetation and remarkable landscapes. Rivers course through the various reserves and give rise to riverine vegetation laden with reeds and lush tropical foliage.

The Week in Pictures : Landscapes, Feeding Frenzy and Rivals

During the course of last week we relaunched our week in pictures, which means we are well into our 4th year of celebrating exquisite images from the Greater Kruger, Botswana and the Karoo. The beauty of week in pictures is that each week will be different, but the core remains the same – to celebrate the…

Week in Pics Relaunch : Sharing Images Since 2014. Now It’s Better. Here’s Why.

4 years ago, in 2014, we launched our first “Week in Pictures”. The idea was to showcase our ranger’s images and update guests about sightings from the week, focussing on the more prominent moments in the bushveld. Week in Pictures went live every Friday and it was a fantastic way to kick off the weekend….

We Found Lions on Foot During Our 3 Day Kruger Walking Trail

Despite the torrential downpours and unpredictable weather bestowed upon us by moody Mother Nature, our scheduled 3 day walking trail in the Greater Kruger’s Maseke Game Reserve went ahead as planned. This weather is not atypical to the Kruger during the summer months and this time of year we’re at the tail end of summer, so the…
