the day of the leopard

Tuesday 24th of June 2014…. what a day for leopards it was! It was a crisp winter morning and my guests were on their last drive before returning home to China. They only had time for a very short, one hour long, drive. After contemplating it for a few hours the night before we decided […]

the rise of the firefly

The day has turned into night and we set out from our sundowner stop, into the chilly air as winter begins to set in. Darkness falls fast in Africa and our tracker waves his spotlight from side to side looking for the reflection of eyes from some of the elusive nocturnal species that moves around […]

what it takes to be a lion

Thumbnail image for what it takes to be a lion by Sabi Sabi June 3, 2014

Over all the time I have been involved in guiding and more especially since Sabi Sabi started with Social Media, I have noticed a trend where people pass judgment on the lions. There is an opinion, even amongst the rangers that certain lions are better than others. I think it is amazing to have such […]

Part of my job that I enjoy the most is getting to intimately know individual animals and their stories. We don’t have too much access or time for TV out in the bush, but I feel that we have the best soap opera happening right around and in front of our game vehicles. These stories […]

As we set out for the afternoon Safari our plan was to go and spend some time with 8 lionesses of the Southern Pride that were found in the morning towards the south of Sabi Sabi. We were having a wonderful drive with some great sightings of plains game and one or two lovely birds. […]

Us as Guides have an almost ‘love/hate’ relationship when it comes to taking leave. Most of us work incredibly hard 7 days a week for 6 weeks at a time and have our weekends consolidated into two weeks of uninterrupted leave. Now this well-deserved and usually very much appreciated, however there is one problem with […]

The Southern African wilderness is unbelievably diverse in terms of the array of life found within it, from the smallest of insects to the world’s largest land mammal. As a guest to our country it is sometimes so easy to overlook the smaller details when on a safari, especially when confronted with the infamous and […]

The heavy rains have lifted and the bush, with its thirst quenched, is returning to business as usual. There has been a lot of action on the reserve this week with guests being treated to some really amazing sightings, but not without just a hint of sadness to darken the mood. There is a saying […]
