The day has turned into night and we set out from our sundowner stop, into the chilly air as winter begins to set in.

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 […]

With winter continuing to creep in here at Sabi Sabi, it allowed for cool and chilly mornings and the most magnificent daytime temperatures. A highlight this week was certainly spotting the return of the blue-eyed female elephant calf. The cause of this blue-eyed phenomenon is due to a form of albinism often referred to as […]

The dry months are officially upon us and the bush is at its most beautiful. It may be just the opinion of one, but there is just something so extraordinary about observing wildlife being contrasted against the withering vegetation of this magnificent landscape.

What a leopard she is. Since my arrival at Sabi Sabi, almost 5 years ago, I have been absolutely captivated by this beautiful cat. Currently just short on 16 years old, she is still going strong and has recently been found with two new cubs. The sighting was short and sweet but it was a […]
