Week in Pics : Roll on the Festive Long Weekend

The long weekend is approaching and there are many of us looking forward to the well-earned break. If you’re celebrating Easter, then consider these images a gift from the Easter bunny. If you’re not celebrating Easter, then consider this a visual and virtual gift to be enjoyed over the long weekend.

Highlights from the Week :

Africa on Foot and nThambo Tree Camp

The wild dogs have returned to the Klaserie traverse and will remain on our territory until August time. The beginning of May signifies the start of their denning period. The highlight of the Klaserie camps is the varied sightings of these gregarious “painted wolves”.  Another interesting sighting was a brief glimpse of a lone male lion on the northern reaches of our traverse.

Tuskers Bush Camp in Botswana

Photographer Dan, who is based at the camp, constantly hears the lions calling at night. He has seen them a few times down at the pan in front of camp, but a few  nights ago he enjoyed close-up sightings and great visual. We’re still awaiting his award-winning photos as proof of the sighting! Seems the lions of Tuskers Bush Camp are slowly emerging from the confines of the surrounding bush and into the open.

Umkumbe Safari Lodge

Yet again, the leopards of the Sabi Sand take centre stage in this week’s highlights. Ranger Nadia reports sightings of the Bicycle Crossing male and slender leopardess, Tatowa.

Ezulwini Game Lodges

Last night during our #LiveBushFeed game drive, guests were lucky enough to spot Chavaluthu, a resident male leopard from the area. Of course, before returning to a boma dinner under the stars they also saw a lone lioness – 50 metre’s from where Chavaluthu was relaxing. Now imagine the two had collided?

We hope you enjoy the “week in pictures”. Have a safe and festive long weekend!
