Week in Pictures: Predators in the Power Seat!

It’s been an undeniably awesome week in the Greater Kruger region, which makes this edition of the Week in Pictures particularly difficult. Such a small collection of images to represent such a dynamite week on safari just doesn’t seem fair, but each event has been documented in much greater detail on our Facebook pages, which are well worth a visit!

Predators have dominated the wildlife news this week, with numerous leopards being spotted down south in the supreme Sabi Sand, and all sorts of lion activity bursting out of the Klaserie, including an exceptional sighting of a solo white lioness last night!

We’ve seen the well known leopards and their cubs at Umkumbe Safari Lodge, the Trilogy male lions mating with Ross Pride lionesses at Africa on Foot, while blue-eyed male leopard, Chavaluthu, has made another appearance at Ezulwini Game Lodges, and African wild dogs have given birth to pups near nThambo Tree Camp! It truly has been a sizzler of a week, so sit back and take a look at this photo summary of a predator-filled safari…
