THE DAILY POST – COUNT?

Yesterday this large herd of Cape Buffalo crossed the Thanda Safari savanna. We used this aerial shot to count them. Can you guess the correct number?

PS: It is a quite tricky question because it is often difficult to make out the calves in the mother’s shade …

THANDA SAFARI JERUSALEMA CHALLENGE

The Thanda Safari Jerusalema Dance Challenge video has been posted on all Social Media platforms. This is a link to the video. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun to put this together. Enjoy the show.

THANDA SAFARI JERUSALEMA CHALLENGE

We responded to this challenge to spread the positive and energetic vibe and spirit of our incredible staff, 90% of whom are Zulu and who come from neighbouring communities and KwaZulu-Natal.

We wish to remind the world that in spite of the tragic global COVID-19 Pandemic crisis and turmoil that has gripped humankind and sadly caused the loss of life of family and friends as well as livelihoods, nature has remained oblivious and unaffected, as it has always been for eternity.

This video is dedicated to celebrating nature and all of the conservation efforts of our remarkable industry, that at a time of madness, suffering and pain, that we can always escape and experience nature that rejuvenates the mind and nourishes the soul.

SIYA THANDA WENA!

THE MORNING POST – IT’S TIME AGAIN …

I thought it is time again to share one of my favorite Leopard pictured from my archive. I took this picture 16 years ago. The world has changed a lot since then but these cats have not:

Powerful, Beautiful and Elusive!

THE EVENING POST – MUD

A bit of mud on the horns makes one look so much more impressive 😊
