Local Celebs Tackle the Africa on Foot Wilderness Trails : What goes on Tour…

…Doesn’t Stay on Tour. Not when I’m around. Not when I have a keyboard, a bunch of adjectives, videos, photographs, and first-hand accounts from resident photographer and undercover spy, Em Gatland. She’s not quite part of the KGB and certainly doesn’t have ties with the Mafia family, but she has shared a few secrets from the…

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 : 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…

Week in Pictures : Leopards in the Spotlight

Monday always seems to be an unforgiving start to the week. The onslaught of the working week is upon us, and the realisation that the weekend has disappeared as quickly as a fresh kill next to a hyena, becomes a reality. Our safari images are here to ease the pain caused by Monday’s cruel heart….

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…

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. A frontal view of the commonly spotted impala or scatterbrained guinea fowl can be stagnant. But bathe them in golden light…

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 bushveld is thinning out and the soft velvety greens are slowly giving way to crunchy khakis. Autumn is barging through and soon we’ll be in the…

The Week in Pictures : Curing Your Monday Blues with Our Wildlife Images

Manic Monday is upon us, and the weekend has disappeared as quickly as a pied kingfisher dive bombing its prey. Our Week in Pictures should soften the edges of the somewhat cruel attitude of Monday. Our images will soothe, beguile and enchant your senses, making you forget about your cascading workload. And if you aren’t…
