Hyena challengeJanuary, 07, 2013
The diversity of experiences in the bush is clearly depicted in the last few posts, from gentle motherly love to uninhibited ferocity. This clan of hyenas was found feeding on an impala ram.

The only hyena bold to challenge the presumed...READ MORE
Hlabankunzi female leopard and cubJanuary, 03, 2013
Inquisitive little leopard! Hlabankunzi and cub this morning.
The sounds emitted from the safari vehicle when guests first sight this little one is something else. The cub is met with a barrage of “oohs” and “aahs” and rightfully so; it is downright adorable.

Hukuri – November 2012 Wildlife JournalNovember, 30, 2012
The weather: November is a magic time to visit the bush, as Mother Nature goes through an elegant state of chaos. The month started off hot and dry with only little sign of rain. It was only later in the month we witnessed the afternoon build-up of rain clouds becoming more pronounced until finally some thunderstorms came rolling in from the south-east and bathed the landscape around the Reserve...READ MORE
