A video taken by Mark on the 31 of March of tiny lion cubs probably having their 1st introduction to meat at a zebra kill. We saw the lion tracks followed them a bit and then drove to a nearby drainage line where we found one lioness lying in very thick bush. We did not […]

A recent video of African wild dogs playing during a safari at the lodge. They love to run and they never seem to ran out of energy, but they are not the most acrobatic as you can see. It is always difficult to explain to guests how special it is to see these endangered animals […]
Mark took this video close to Pride rock on the 25th of March. He found the cubs again after a lengthy search much to the delight of the guests in his safari vehicle. The area around Pride rock is very rocky which makes it an ideal place for lions to hide their cubs as it […]
Guests visiting Pondoro saw a group of about 10 elephant bulls swimming at Ngwenya dam on the morning on the 19th of March. It is a very special sighting as we do not see this that often. The enjoyment for the elephants are easy to see and we sat for about 45 minutes enjoying their […]
Mark took this video of the very rare and endangered black rhinos mating on the 18th of March. I am not sure whether they succeeded as it does not look to be the most convincing of attempts. It made for good video footage though. That might have been the problem as a little more privacy […]
The 1st video of the new lion cubs taken by Mark. They are all males so their chances of survival should be better than if it was only one.
Guests driving with Mark saw how this black rhino cow chased a male lion around. Black rhinos are notoriously temperamental and she surely did them proud. Amazing footage Mark!
Guests on Mark’s safari cruiser saw how a pride of lions stalked and killed a zebra foal right next to their safari cruiser during the evening safari on the 31st of January 2013.
Mark and his guests had an amazing elephant experience on the 27th of January 2013 when a breeding herd of about 15 elephants decided to take a dust bath right next to their safari cruiser. They were so close that you could actually hear the sprayed sand grains falling on the vehicle.
This is a video taken by Rul, one of our guides, at a den site on the 23rd of October 2012. The hyenas moved their site just after the video was taken, but I am very happy to report that they have moved back to the site and guests are now seeing them on a […]
Rul took this video of a big male leopard, called Watsakile, feeding on a warthog carcass on the 8th of January 2013. We saw the leopard killing the warthog 2 days before during the afternoon safari. These are one of the big advantages of staying at a private safari lodge where we can follow animals […]
Guests saw a male leopard drinking at a natural rock pool filled with rain water while on safari on the 17th of December. Beautiful spot and wish I was there to photograph.
A video taken by Rul on the 9th of December of a black rhino drinking and wallowing. They are so rare to see in the wild and to witness this kind of behavior out in the open is very special.
After a fairly quiet safari drive on the 29th of October things changed quickly when we found a big male leopard drinking water at Tambotie dam and then just after that on the way home this male lion surprised us at Nyari dam . He started to roar as soon as the vehicle stopped as […]
Mark, one of our guides, took this amazing video of a giraffe giving birth during September 2012. Guests and guides alike sat in awe as the whole incident unfolded in front of their eyes over a period of about an hour.
