Inyati Game Reserve, sights from the bush.

The bar area in the early morning before game drive.
Everyone was in the room next door,
drinking coffee and eating muffins before setting off.

No time to sit and ponder at 06h00...
Save that for the post drive "de-briefing"!

This elephant had wandered...

This is a Brown Hooded Kingfisher.

One of my all time favourite raptors,
the Bateleur, which means acrobat in French.
There is a move to try and...

Thursday, July 16, 2015 : Well spotted! Leopards galore at Inyati Game Reserve

THIS is what visitors to Sabi Sands come to see...
This youngster is around 15 months old.
It lazed in the tree for the longest time before deciding to come down.
It is one of the cubs that belong to Thlangisa.

Inyati Game Reserve, Sabi Sands

Having returned from the heat of Dubai the night before,
I was looking forward to cooler weather while in Sands Sands.
The sky was grey and overcast, boding well for more reasonable temperatures.
I was wrong as it turned out...
The skies remained clear and unseasonably warm...

Inyati Game Reserve...the accommodation and a lot more.

This is the view form my seat on our game drive vehicle...
I believe that when I am in a reserve, my accommodation
is only used for sleeping and showering.

Keith was our ranger,
and he is the General Manager of the Lodge.
So, we were very lucky...

April 2015 Field Guide Report by Matt – The woes of lions
April, 30, 2015

The dust hasn’t settled on the passing of the Othawa sub-adults, when and in the meantime the Ximungwe females have followed suit. Both killed separately by the Othawa females. They leave behind the sub-adults, three females and the male. They were last seen full up on Impala. It is time for them to stand up on their own four feet and prove the genes of the Selatis are strong. The Othawas and...

February 2015 Field Guide Report by Matt
March, 25, 2015

 So at some point in this year it was January, the next thing I know a cycle has flown by and February came to an end. Admittedly February is a short month but it seems to have flown past. We still have had no rain and the bush is prematurely turning the beautiful blonde colour that suggests the rain might not come this season.
