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.

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.

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 [...]

For most guides, getting into photography is a natural progression and in our case it is not only a means of documenting the natural world we are so fortunate enough to play a part in protecting, it is an art of observation. It has little to do with what we see, but everything to do [...]

a memorable feast

Two days ago I experienced the most incredible wild dog sightings I have had in two years of guiding. Our drive started off watching an amazing dazzle of zebra who were feeding amongst the giants of Africa, the African elephant. The elephants showed such grace feeding and trying to collect the last few fallen Marula [...]

The night air was heavy with humidity but there was no mistaking the echo of male lions roaring close to Bush Lodge.
