Pride of 13 Lions drinking from the Savuti Channel

It was one of those very memorable sightings one can only really expect from the legendary Savute marsh. Wildlife is unpredictable everywhere in Africa, throwing indescribable beauty at you around every turn, but there is something mysteriously magical about the Savuti, starting with the Savuti Channel that sprung from dormancy, to life, after 30 years….

Wild Dogs Hunt And Drink At The Savuti Channel

Wild dogs are possibly the most entertaining animals to watch… when you are lucky enough to spot them on game drive! Firstly, they are incredible predators, they have beautifully patterned pelts, they are never alone, and they are always interacting with each other in a playful and noisy fashion. Lions, on the other hand, enjoy the…

Lion Charge In The Savute Kingdom

Harvey’s Pan in Botswana’s renowned Savute region seems to be occupied by a pair of rather ferocious king cats! After 2 nights of roaring heard at Camp Savuti, a fierce-looking male and his equally stern lioness were located in the shade near one of Harvey’s Pan waterholes. Keeping well hidden, these cats were a mystery…

Week in Pictures: Unexpected elephants, and more safari gold

Sometimes you see what you expect, sometimes something quite the opposite comes your way. While on safari with Camp Linyanti, we encountered so many elephants that we grew to expect them around every corner, but we had to stop and take a look at one particularly wrinkly old female. She didn’t have any tusks, and her…

The Week in Pictures: The birds, the bees, and the big things.

With such a diverse range of camps in various areas of pristine wilderness, its not surprising that the photography coming out of these areas each week is reliably great. The Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, the Sabi Sand, and the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve have produced some fantastic footage lately, and photographers Em Gatland, Kevin MacLaughlin,…

Week in Pictures: All the cats, the dogs, and rhinos in perfect light

Word from the camps this week comes packed with enviable tales of life in the bush. Kevin MacLaughlin has more from home-base at Africa on Foot: A spotted bush snake was found at Africa on Foot just behind one of the guest’s rooms. It spends most of its time in trees in search of lizards and tree frogs,…
