a week in the bush: vol 31

by Sabi Sabi on December 18, 2014

Welcome to all of you again to another installment of “A Week in the Bush…” It has been a phenomenal week here at Sabi Sabi with loads of lion and leopard activity as well as some fantastic general game and some really special sightings too.  There is a great deal to cover this week so let’s dive into it.

The start to the week saw the Southern Pride split still on the reserve and attempting to avoid the Sand River males.  They were sticking to the southern reaches of the reserve again and I think this is where they feel most comfortable.  The Sabie River is also in close proximity there and so they have an easy route for escaping the three big males.  They were all still looking in high spirits from the recent meal they had procured in front of Selati Camp a few nights before, but were surely on the lookout again.  They did, to our knowledge at least, cross over into the Kruger National Park on the morning following this sighting, for how long though we can only guess.

In an environment where no two days are the same, nobody could have predicted how amazing our game viewing this cycle was going to be. Usually it is members of the Big Five that steal the show but two unexpected characters would end up stealing the limelight.

This is what we were extremely fortunate to witness earlier this week where we watched a male cheetah face off with two Spotted Hyena. The day had started like any other, the excitement and enthusiasm grew […]
