a week in the bush: vol 40

by Sabi Sabi on February 26, 2015

Welcome to another edition of A Week in the Bush. Over the past week the rain has been looming on the horizon and the overcast conditions have led to another incredible week of game viewing. With the overcast and cooler weather conditions we have found that the movement of the animals has been greater throughout the day and making going on safari incredibly exciting.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy

A female cheetah was found earlier in the week feeding on an impala lamb at the edge of an open clearing. This female is quickly growing up and proving to be an incredible hunter. Over the past few months it seems as if she is a specialist in killing impala lambs. Exciting times lie ahead as tracks indicate that this female often seems to be trailed by a male cheetah.

Nottins’ cub is becoming a quick favourite amongst the guides here at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve as he grows in both stature and confidence. On almost every occasion they were seen this week, he seems to have eaten his own body weight in food whilst Nottins looks lean in comparison. Her pure selflessness is un-paralleled and highlights the motherly compassion amongst mammals. Read the full article →

It seems weird to be thinking all the way back to the festive season, but such is the length of the cycles that we do in the bush. Even though we weren’t around with our families to receive some presents, Santa certainly did not disappoint us with the sightings and the New Year certainly brought […]

Monochrome Monday is a way of seeing the world from a different perspective. There are an estimated 10 million different colors the human eye can pick up, as apposed to 450 odd shades of grey, but these colors can sometimes distract from the natural beauty of a subject. “Look deep into nature, and then you […]

It has been another productive week here at Sabi Sabi and we have quite a lot to share with you as a result.  There is the slightest of chill in the morning air at the moment delaying morning animal activities, most noticeably in the bird species.  This is great from a photography point of view […]

‘Perfection is not attainable, but if we can chase perfection we can catch excellence’ – Vince Lombardi. The previous cycle of mine was yet another extremely memorable one as it yet again reminded me that it is not my passion and dream that I get to live every day whilst at work, it is my […]

“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” ― Henri Cartier-Bresson I find myself holding my breath more and more these days as these moments present themselves, but as far as mastering […]
