Most people visit places like the Sabi Sands for the beauty, tranquillity as well as the vastness of the African bushveld. It’s hard to believe that this place of serenity also has a dark and evil side. However, this side of nature has an alluring effect on most and even though some things are extremely […]

For first time safari goers the main goal is mostly to experience as much of the African bush as possible in a short space of time. Which makes perfect sense as who wouldn’t like to see the Big 5 on a trip to Africa and tick as many boxes as you can? This phenomena is […]

It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” ― Henri Cartier-Bresson Welcome to another installment of our wildlife in monochrome segment.  Some moments witnessed do most certainly take your breath away, while […]

Asking a ranger what time of year is the best time to visit the bush always starts a great debate; it’s like asking newlyweds what part of their partner do they love the most – there is no part, you love them as a whole! Even I am unable to choose just one time of […]
