We have had some glorious rainfall this past week which has seen the bush turn into a blanket of green almost overnight!
Waterholes are full and there are many puddles all over the reserve! It’s amazing to witness just how excited certain species get when they come across water – and elephants being one of them! It’s an amazing sight to witness!
A stunning African Hawk Eagle poses beautifully as the setting sun starts to dip towards the horizon.
We enjoyed an interesting interaction which took place in front of Selati Camp as some Spotted Hyenas competed for a leg belonging to a recent Buffalo carcass on the property.
It is amazing to observe a Southern Masked Weaver building its nest. This shows us how beautiful, intelligent and complex nature is.
A Giant Eagle-Owl fledgling waits patiently upon the return of his mother with a possible meal in a large Sycamore Fig Tree.
A male Steenbok stands extremely still as a vehicle drives past in order to hide his presence.
The Southern Pride were seen close to Bush Lodge and they had been successful in bringing down a female Cape Buffalo which they had just begun feeding on.
The pride also seemed to enjoy the recent rains as they made their way down to a waterhole to quench their thirst.
The Msuthlu female leopard has been seen more regularly of late. A beautiful young female! She was seen stalking a herd of impala with newly born lambs, however, her hunt was ruined by one African Wild Dog that was potentially trying to predate on the same herd.
Maxabeni male has been hard at work scent marking his territory following the rains.
We hope you have enjoyed this week’s highlights and look forward to sharing more wonderful sightings with you again next week!
Until next time…
