The Week in Pictures : Forget Flora, Winter is the (Feline) Fauna Season!

Friday flew past faster than a Peregrine falcon swooping in on its prey, which meant that we didn’t have the chance to release our much loved weekly edition of the “Week in Pictures” – we owe you a bumper edition of pictures. The Lowveld is buzzing with predator activity at the moment. When the bright…

Week in Pictures : The Wild of Winter

The thing about winter in the Kruger is that it really is prime game viewing time. The sparse bushveld makes it easy to spot game and the lack of rains means that wildlife congregates at waterholes. We know (generally) where to find game – and the bushveld is far easier to scan for signs of…

The Week in Pics : All Creatures Great and Small

Winter is in full swing in the Greater Kruger, and predator sightings have steadily increased. The big cats are always there, but with the thinning out of the bushveld they’ve become easier to locate. Giant water-loving herbivores, graceful general game, powerful lions, sleek leopards and adorable critters have provided plenty of sightings for our guests…

The Week in Pictures : Wildlife Images to Cure Your Friday Fever

If you have a case of Friday fever, then we suggest you make use of your time and scroll through our recent sprinkling of wildlife images fresh from the undergrowth of the Kruger. There’s plenty happening out there, and – across the board – guests have been rewarded with sightings of lion cubs, wild dogs…

The Week in Pictures : Bovids and Pachyderms Share the Limelight

The ‘veld is gradually losing its lush and velvet green appearance, and the duller hues of the winter season seem to be seeping into the carpets of emerald. This week, it’s not the tawny and mottled predators in the spotlight, but rather the bovids and pachyderms. The colossal elephants and buffalo have put on quite…

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. Sheets of water aggressively pelt down onto heated African landscapes and inject bursts of life into withering landscapes. Those moments deserve to be sung about, and currently the Lowveld is living…
