On Sunday we started the afterrnoon safari not knowing that it would the drive of a lifetime!!! As I started the drive my expectations where more hopefull than the windy cold afternoon that presented itself to us. I was hoping on seeing one of the regular black rhino that frequent Ngala dam […]

Photos of leopards and black rhinos seem to dominate our Facebook and blog pages as sightings of these elusive animals escalated during the last few months.

Guests staying at Pondoro had a great sighting of Chavaluthu walking right past the vehicle on the 9th of March. He really is a beautiful leopard.
Greg, a guide at our neighbouring lodge and good friend, called me in for this sighting of 2 francolins fighting on the 21st of February. It lightened up a otherwise quiet drive.

A selection of photos taken during game drives in the month of February.
Nick and Eric, ranger and tracker team at Pondoro, found a male leopard with a zebra kill on the morning drive on the 24th of January. I went there during the afternoon drive on the 24th and 25th and took these photos.
This female was seen on the 18th of January high up on a termite mound looking at 4 rhinos walking past. She was right next to the car and it was eerie having her staring over the car at the rhinos.
