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

There’s a promise of rain hiding beneath the claps of thunder and bolts of lighting assaulting our senses. We’ve waited patiently for sheets of rain to drown our landscape and replenish our arid soils.  The intermittent rains have brought a burst of colour and lush greenery to the wild, but we needed more. 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

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…

A tribute to the Black Mambas APU on World Rhino Day

Every day should hold some reminder to the world that our wildlife is in danger, and that animals such as rhinos are dropping like flies in areas that are meant to protect them. Sadly, this is the reality due to the incomprehensible demand for rhino horn that is engulfing the Kruger Park’s population of rhino…
