Stripes Galore

October 06, 2011 - Singita Grumeti,Wildlife

The dam on the plains in front of Singita Sasakwa Lodge was a hive of activity before the rains started in earnest.  Animals trek for miles to reach the waterhole, which is one of the few that offers a good field of view. In particular there have been huge herds of zebra coming in to drink, often wading deep into the water. From around 09h00 through to 17h00 it is always busy.  Sometimes there are smaller herds of impala joining the zebra and often the Butamtam lion pride is found positioned close to the waterhole in the hopes of making a kill.

This striking black and white photography was taken by Lee Bennett, Head Guide at Singita Grumeti Reserves.  To follow wildlife updates from Grumeti Reserves, refer to the monthly Guides’ Diaries posted on Singita’s website.

Wildlife – the News in Pictures

December 09, 2010 - Safari,Singita,Wildlife

From Singita Guide, Marlon du Toit – Singita Kruger National Park

November has to be one of the most exciting months. The dry dusty landscape changes into a lush and green savannah. Within two weeks of the first rains it all transforms. The grasses are an intense green and all the trees spread their fresh young leaves. To add to this there are thousands of impala lambs. They are born towards the end of November and the population almost doubles. Seeing these little things on their tall, wobbly legs is a sight to behold. All of the beautiful and colourful migratory birds have arrived as well.
