The game viewing at Singita Sabi Sand in March has been nothing short of spectacular.

The excitement started when we were privileged enough to have our first glimpse of the new leopard cubs in the first week of the month. Even though it was only a long distance visual of the cubs together with their mother on a rocky ledge, everyone realised just how rare and special it is to view leopard cubs, especially at only 5 weeks old.

In general, however, the first few days of the month were fairly quiet until one afternoon there seemed to be more than we could take in. Suddenly, we found the 3 members of the Mapogo coalition of male lions, the Othawa Pride of 8 as well as 6 members of the Southern Pride. The large herd of buffalo were also grazing in the southern sections of the property together with various crashes of white rhino and breeding herds of elephant making the most of the last scatterings of ripe marula fruit. If that wasn’t enough, the pack of 7 wild dogs were also discovered and some guests were lucky enough to witness them make two impala kills in a matter of minutes. Since then, this seems to have been the theme of the month, with a male cheetah also making a couple of appearances in the more open southern reaches of the property. The Southern Pride have been sharpening their buffalo hunting skills and have managed to kill a couple of these animals during the month. Nicky was lucky enough to witness one of these events which she describes further in this month’s Guides’ Diary.
