  • A special sunrise over the bush.
The new lookout tower provides a good high point to view game but also the scenery and we took the opportunity to go watch the sunrise on a very beautiful morning.

  • Leopard descending a Marula tree. 
Great capture. Although these animals are known for climbing trees you don’t often get to witness it happen.
Thanks Heidel for the photo.

  • The transformation over 3 months is believable. 
From going to brown and dry to lush and green. 
It is amazing how different the bush is after some good rains.
Just amazing transformation.
Thanks Trevor for the photos.

So great to see elephant in abundance like this.

  • The summer migrants are coming back now and the Wahlberg’s Eagle was one of the first to come back.
This is an interesting one because it is the pale morph which is great to see the different varieties of these birds.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • That time of year again when the weavers are building their nest for the breeding season.
A beautiful Red-headed Weaver building his nest on the property. 
There is a huge fever tree at our entrance gate where you will always see these red-headed weavers and where they build their nests as well, so next time you visit the farm look up and have a look before heading into the reserve.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • The two Cheetah are still on the property and we’re seen on the N1 just outside the residential area. 
Hopefully they stick around for a while. 
It would seem the lions have moved off the property at the moment and this could be the reason why these cheetah are sticking around for the time being.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • CHEETAH!!!! 
Two cheetah have been found with a kill, possibly a duiker.
This sighting is deep into the property so hopefully these two cheetah hang around for a while.
Thanks Pierre for the photo.
