There’s a beautiful ebb and flow of sightings in the bushveld. Sometimes it’s a week of plains game sightings peppered with predator sightings, and other weeks its predators barging into the limelight and plains game taking a back sight. A few things are always consistent in the ‘veld, and that includes mind-blowing sunsets, spectacular safari scenes of vast landscapes, and the smell of the wild. There are plenty of wild things roaming throughout the reserves, and it’s our job to track them and observe from a non-threatening position. This week we have a mix of wildlife and landscape images, and in terms of sightings it seems to be quite evenly spread between the plains game and the predators.
The wild dog pups in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve have, once again, been spotted. Seeing these rare dogs is always a highlight! Ezulwini Game Lodges continue to enjoy prolific sightings of big game and predators. Their incredible camera trap has been set-up in a prime position and has certainly captured plenty of data. The results from this Balule camera trap always have a tale to tell. Umkumbe Safari Lodge have a few unusual sightings recently, one of which included that of a giant emperor moth. Umkumbe continues to see ample leopard sightings and have even been rewarded with sightings of the southern pride of lions. Chacma Bush Camp came into contact with the Maseke coalition of lions, and continue to spot these big boys on a regular basis.
