Week in Pictures is a round-up of our favourite photographic moments designed to entice you to Africa’s wildest places. This week has provided an interesting mix of big cat sightings coupled with a colourful array of birdlife and other small mammals.
Highlights have included a lion kill by the aloof Hercules Pride right outside the rangers block at Africa on Foot and leopard sightings of Ross Dam, White Rock and Ross Dam’s cub. In among these sightings there’s been a vivid display of birds darting about in the lush landscape. nThambo Tree Camp continue to have the elephant herds drinking from the lodge swimming pool, despite the natural water sources being replenished.
Umkumbe Safari Lodge and Ezulwini Game Lodges have had leopard and lion sightings respectively. The plains game and water loving herbivores are very present within the Sabi Sand. The Sand River in front of the lodge really is a hotspot for game and the river at Ezulwini River Lodge is equally a drawcard for wildlife in the Balule Nature Reserve.
Xobega Island Camp and Tuskers Bush Camp have had their usual viewings of buffalo, elephants, giraffe and birdlife. However, this week also saw the emergence of yet another leopard on the Tuskers Bush Camp traverse, which adds to the big cat excitement of the area.
Have a good weekend – we hope you like the images!
