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…

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 : The Art of White Space in Wildlife Photography

This week for Week in Pictures, we’re going to focus on something a bit different.

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…

The Week in Pictures : Abstract Scenes in the Bushveld

The bushveld provides ample opportunity to get creative with your lens, and there’s never a moment not worth photographing.

This week, we’ve decided to select our more abstract images…

On a weekly basis we interrupt your daily grind to deliver the latest slew of images fresh from the bushveld. The idea is to charm you with ranger’s and photographer’s awe-inspiring images of wild landscapes and its inhabitants.

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…

Our images will soothe, beguile and enchant your senses, making you forget about your cascading workload. And if you aren’t…
