The Week in Pictures : Wild Dogs and Savage Predators

Our savage  predators have been incredibly active in the Greater Kruger, and certainly haven’t bothered keeping their ruthless take downs out of the limelight. This week is almost a repeat of last week’s update, with the predators refusing to leave the stage. We’re talking abundant leopard and lion sights spanning the Kruger savannah and the unruly…

What’s Happening with the Lions of the Klaserie? A Lot. Here’s An Update.

When a pilot episode of a new series is aired we get sucked into the storyline and we’re often left angling for more. Pilot episodes are fleeting and they lull us into a false sense of security that episode 1 of the series will be released. Unfortunately, pilot episodes are fleeting and fickle. They’re full of false promises. They’re…

The Week in Pictures : Family Felidae Steal the Show

Last week we delivered a magnificent edition of Week in Pictures, filled to the brim with a fine collection of Kruger wildlife images.

Week in Pictures : Change of Season in Kruger

Claps of thunder, bolts of lightning and torrential downpours are the hallmark characteristics of summer in Kruger. We roller coast through the arid season, straight towards the carpets lush vegetation of summer, and occasionally we bypass spring.  The change of season in Kruger is often an unpredictable time of year, and we’re certainly feeling the effects of the…
