Skittish Lions Feast on Giraffe Kill for Days

There are a number of resident lion coalitions and prides on Africa on Foot and nThambo’s traverse. These are the local battle-scarred kings and queens that have staked their claim on the land around camps, and frequently put on award-winning shows for guests. The ever-shifting pride dynamics ensure things are never static with our lions, and we’re often gifted…

Cute Leopard Cubs in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve

Despite being aloof and independent cats, leopards actually make excellent mothers. These muscle-bound felines lead a notoriously solitary lifestyle where it’s “each man for himself”.

Mutinous Mbiri Lions Tuck into Elephant Killed by Neighbouring Pride

That’s just the life of…

Videographer Rogan and Ranger Chade Find the Klaserie Wild Dogs

The African wild dogs are quite prominent on the Klaserie traverse, and guests have been enjoying consistent sightings of these mottled dogs frolicking in waterholes and indulging in ceremonious greetings.
