Week in Pictures: Big Cats and Birds!

It’s the beginning of a new year and it is summer in the south! The vegetation is creating jewel-coloured backdrops for some superb wildlife photography, and one finds themselves forgetting what the bush looked like only a few months ago before the precious rains arrived. Game drives begin earlier in the mornings and later in…

Week in Pictures: Hyenas in the mud, and a leopard cub!

It’s getting hot, hot, hot up in the African bush, and the summer rains bring added humidity to the climate. In both Botswana and the Kruger we are seeing changes in the environment, the presence of wildlife, and animal behaviour. Migratory birds continue to fleck the air with new colours and sounds; one of the…

The Week in Pictures: It’s baby season in the wild!

On a recent trip to Botswana, we bore witness to some of the first impalas to be born of the season, baby warthogs tearing up the ground in an excitable game of ‘tag’, and some of Africa’s fiercest predators in their cute n fluffy youth. Well, their presence at a bloody kudu kill tainted their innocence…

Leopard antics at Mapula Lodge

Leopards are some of the most sought after cats in the world. These spotted beauties are far more elusive than lions and are seen in much fewer habitats, but in fact, leopards are the most prolific of the cat species. Living and hunting alone, leopards stay well hidden, so when you see the swish of…
