THE EVENING POST – EXTRA SECURITY

As I drove past Thanda Safari’s Villa iZulu this afternoon I saw a Giraffe bull staring at the gate. He did this for a good reason as one of our Lionesses had taken position in front the entrance, for a bit of extra bush security! 😊

PS: I will be taking a bit of time off and therefore only post once per day. Normal service will be restored next Friday 😊

THE EVENING POST – LION’S ROAR BY ROOT

This is the second video with music from the album ‘Under the Marula Tree’ by ROOT, a local band. It features some of my pictures and videos taken at Thanda Safari.

The music is composed to symbolize African nature icons (eg sunrises, Lions, Elephants, …). This very special album is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer for streaming and download! https://root.hearnow.com/

Enjoy the Lion’s Roar 😊

THE EVENING POST – THE LOOK

One of the most intimidating situation is a male Lion looking straight into your eyes. This is not a high quality image but it captures the situation perfectly! Good night …

THE MORNING POST – QUIET

Sometimes it is better to be very quiet and to make not a move. A herd of Cape Buffalo had chased a pride of Lions around and this Lioness went straight up into a tree. The Buffalo could still smell her but not see her.

The herd spent hours around the area and the Lions had to wait in the trees until the Buffalo had departed!

THE MORNING POST – JULY RAINS

We had some winter rain this morning. Together with very cold wind it made for unattractive safari conditions. Most of the animals had the same thoughts and stayed somewhere deep in the bush.

But I got this picture of one of our male Lions looking a bit sorry for himself 😊. Made it worthwhile to go out!

THE EVENING POST – LITTLE LION

We had a good evening game drive. This little male Lion was posing for the camera.

Have a good evening 😊

THE EVENING POST – CONFUSION

The situation in this picture looks a bit like confusion. Nyalas running one way and a Lioness staring the other way. But in fact the Lioness chased an Nyala bull, missed him and was now out of breath. The Nyala females kept going for a while.

Enjoy your evening!

THE EVENING POST – NOSTALGIE

This is a bit of a nostalgic picture which I took on 31 December 2004. One of my favorite dad and son pictures.

Enjoy your evening 😊

THE EVENING POST – IN A HURRY

These little Lion cubs were in a hurry to catch up with their mums.

Good night πŸ’€
