The week started off with some welcome rain and some lion tracks and signs that a small herd of buffalo had run across the road. We soon came across one of the Avoca males lying beside the remains of a buffalo calf which he must have brought down during the night. He didn’t move far… [Read More]
Ranger Profile: Kevan Dobbie
My name is Kevan Dobbie and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. I am recently new to guiding as I was previously in the aspect of reserve management and the ecological department of various private reserves due to my tertiary studies being a degree in Nature Conservation. However, with that being said, my passion for what we possess in terms of our wildlife is beyond explanation and I try and engage my passion upon my guests to ignite theirs.
I am very keen on photography and would call myself an amateur as there is much to more to learn in presenting my work to a certain level and I am learning new tricks each and every day. I enjoy taking shots that represent what I see in my eyes on a daily basis in order to enlighten those viewing our social media pages of how extraordinary this place is out here in the middle of the bush which I call home. In my photographs I like to include certain animal behaviour, emotion, action-packed moments and the events that they get up to each day. The nice thing is that each and every day is different and unique and that what makes photography while driving my guests around special and exciting, and I am in the best place to do it.

It’s been another wonderful week on safari! We hope you enjoy the highlights of the past 7 days at Sabi Sabi… We came across a Secretary bird seemingly interested in having a monitor lizard for breakfast but never really got too close. The monitor was a decent size and a whip from its powerful tail… [Read More]
A Prince cannot out-compete the King This was a very interesting sighting and definitely one that I will remember for a while. Myself and my tracker were looking for leopard. We set out on an afternoon drive, about 45 minutes in, my trackers brought us to a halt as he found “fresh male leopard tracks.”… [Read More]
