The Week in Pics : Let There be Light..Footed Cats

A new week has breezed past our well-worn Week in Pictures path. I feel that we weren’t given much warning that yet another Tuesday was fast approaching.  The past week, we’ve been fumbling around in the dark, thanks to a few government-issued power cuts. Unfortunately, our provider (Eskom) hasn’t realised that we’re not big cat…

#GuestSafariReview : Nsala Safari Camp a Firm Favourite

Our social media guru, Gemma, noticed that one of the Sun Destinations guests is an avid Instagrammer. Bridget Stringer enjoyed a safari sojourn in southern Africa, and uploaded plenty of images of her adventure at Nsala Safari Camp, one of our Kruger properties. Her game viewing was exceptional. From lions to wild dogs, and vultures framed…

Lone hyena vs massive pack of wild dogs

When a lone female hyena encountered a hostile pack of wild dogs at a waterhole near nThambo Tree Camp at Africa on Foot in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, it made for quite the spectacle. Hyenas get a bad rap. From The Lion King to the recent Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, hyenas are portrayed as…

The Week in (Festive) Pictures : Predators Still Sleigh in the Storm

After threatening…

The Week in Pictures : “All Things Bright and Beautiful”

This week we owe you a bounty of wildlife images, given that we missed last week’s “Week in Pictures” . The usual flurry of activity continues in the Greater Kruger, with the new season bringing with it plenty of promise. The cubs and calves recently born into the reserves seem to be thriving, and we’ve…

Collection of Photos of Pangolin Sightings in the Greater Kruger

The shy scaly anteater bumbles through the bushveld in search of termites, grubs and other minuscule morsels to satisfy its insectivorous diet. Sedentary during the day, active at night, and notoriously coy by nature, makes this prehistoric armoured creature one of the most difficult species to spot while on safari. There a number of different pangolin species across…

The Week in Pictures : Cats, Wild Dogs and Elephants

This week we’ve had another successful week in terms of predator sightings, and the past few weeks we’ve enjoyed a similar pattern of sightings. Wild dogs, leopards and elephants have filtered into the spotlight, providing ample photographic opportunities. Guides have spotted leopards in areas of high visibility, and the wild dogs – although nomadic – tend…
