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 [...]

For some time now, most of the guides here at Sabi Sabi have been questioning the absence of the Little Bush female and the likely cause being that she must have cubs somewhere on the reserve.
