Possibly one of the “cutest” weeks we’ve had in a very long time… Any guesses?? Of course, the two adorable Southern Pride/N’waswishaka cubs!!! We are fortunate to witness the next stage of the cubs’ lives as their mother introduces them to meat. We found two buffalo kills stashed away in a riverbed with one of the… [Read More]
Ranger Profile: Ally Ross
Hi there my name is Ally Ross. I am part of one of the greatest safari and social media teams in the industry, Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. While I was working in the city it dawned on me that I was delaying the inevitable. My passion lay with wildlife and it was time to pursue this new venture.
At the tender age of eight I had already told had desires to work in the bush as a guide. Little did anyone know that seventeen years later I would be living the dream. Photography was always just a hobby, until I chose guiding as a career. Being out in the bush on a daily basis provides ample opportunity to practice and hone my skills. What better way to learn and experiment with different subjects, lenses, camera setting etc. in one of the most incredible wildlife areas in Southern Africa.
The best part of this journey is that every day is a learning curve. Every time I get out into the bush, I make a concerted effort to try something different, something new and practice something I have not yet mastered. That is the beauty of the journey.
Behind every photo lies a story and a memorable experience hence the reason I thoroughly enjoy writing, especially blogging. I find great passion in sharing my stories and experiences with all who frequent Sabi Sabi as well as those who still plan to make my home a part of their journey.

An early start to a summer safari is probably, in my opinion, one of the best experiences one can have. The air is crisp and fresh; the light is gentle and up-lifting. The songbirds greet you with melodies so sweet as they reaffirm the start of your day. As I drive through the Eastern sector… [Read More]
