Wildlife – the News in Pictures

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.

Bath with a View

Whether sinking into a froth of bubbles surrounded by the elegance of a Sasakwa cottage or slipping into a sunken tub overlooking the riverine forest at Singita Sweni, all of the Singita lodges promise a bathtime ritual that induces one to unwind, enveloped by picture perfect panoramas.

The claw foot tub at Singita Sabora Tented Camp – Tanzania.  There are so many layers to this 1920s-inspired explorers’ camp and the view from the tub is one of staggering beauty – savannah grasslands until the eye can see.

The bath tubs at the contemporary Singita Faru Faru Lodge in Tanzania, are positioned to maximize the opportunity to view the game that comes down to the Grumeti River to drink.

A bath soak at Singita Sasakwa Lodge – Tanzania – is an infinitely luxurious affair.  At the end of an exciting day of game viewing there is nothing better than to settle into a candle-lit oasis with a breathtaking view of the plains.

Embracing and intimate, Singita Sweni Lodge – South Africa – is truly cosy.  Imagine taking time to lie back in an enourmous bath of bubbles or salt crystals, watching the hippos wallowing around in the river beneath the open window.

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

Featured in this article are a variety of photographs from elephants to lions and leopards.  In general the Singita Kruger concession is still blowing everyone away, including guides that have been here for a long time.  Viewings of wildlife have been spectacular over the past weeks.

As far as lions go, the Mountain Pride has been staying within the Kori Clearing vicinity for the last two weeks now.  That is good news for us as we don’t have to drive too the far north in order to find them.

Another highlight from the last few days were two slender mongooses battling it out for territory.  They went about it as if their lives depended on it, and it was the first time I witnessed something like that.  Also, we have been seeing black rhino at least twice a week; amazing considering there are fewer that 500 in the whole entire park.
