hot pursuit

Solo and the Eyrefield male had gone south we thought in pursuit of the Southern Pride. Their tracks, the next day, had crossed east out of Sabi Sabi and four, relatively new males to the area, were found minutes later. These new males were found north of where Solo and the Eyrefield male’s tracks disappeared. [...]

I had a good feeling the Southern Pride was going to be around after hearing them fight just east of the boundary the previous morning. We set off south looking for tracks of the pride, with my tracker Eric’s right hand shooting up I hit the brakes. Tracks of the pride, going in the opposite [...]

There are few things more beautiful than looking up at the night sky and seeing the Milky Way stretching across the sky. The absolute abyss of the universe dwarfs us into something so small that it is inconceivable to understand all that is. I have been driving a photographic group for a few days and [...]

My week’s highlight has got to be the herd of zebra that were drinking water right in front of our eyes. In the distance, on our northern side of the reserve, my tracker Louis spotted a beautiful Dazzle of Zebra slowly making their way towards a waterhole nearby. I spoke to my guests and explained [...]

There is just something amazing about winter, the chilly starts to the day and the warm afternoons all finished off with a dazzling display of the Milky Way at night.

The morning chill penetrated all layers as we left Bush Lodge for safari before the sun had even risen. With the glimmer of first light on the horizon, we set out on another amazing journey into the African wilderness. The fresh air left our noses and ears tingling with the bite of cold but all [...]
