  • Some very interesting behavior which is not seen so often by Hornbills. 

Their diet includes small mammals but it is not seen often. 
Here a Yellow-Billed Hornbill has a small mouse in its mouth and trying to swallow it.

Thanks Andrew for the interesting photo.

  • Something which is not seen often on the property.

A Kori Bustard was seen this morning on the airstrip. 
These are the heaviest flying birds in South Africa.

Thanks Trevor for the photo.

  • 2 Lionesses walking past Henshaws Dam this morning.

You can hear how the Blacksmith Lapwings are calling as the Lions wall past.

Thanks Trevor for the video.

  • A little bit of night time photography. 
Not the easiest of things to do but can be really rewarding.

This was taken on one of the open areas near the residential area and towards the south.

  • Great sighting at Henshaws Dam. 

Elephant have been all over the property at the moment and it is been so good being able to see these animals regularly as sometimes you visit the farm and don’t see any. 

Something different everyday and around every corner.

Thanks Johan van Wyk for the photo.

  • SOUND ON!!!! 

A Male Lion walking and calling as makes his rounds on the farm. 
The Lion dynamics at the moment are still a bit all over the place now but there has been some cubs born in the reserve below us so there has definitely been Males hanging around and mating with the resident pride. 

Thanks Alan for the video.

  • A series of photos of An African Fish Eagle, one of the most iconic calls in the African bush. 

This series of photos was taken as the Fish Eagle came down from its perch to catch something at Warthog Dam. 

Thanks Bryan for the photos.

  • Civet coming around the house yesterday. 
Usually they come around sometime during the night, as they are generally nocturnal, but this individual wanted to get out early to look what it can get. 
Civets are omnivorous and will eat anything they can catch. 
This individual was seen catching something which looked like a Hornbill in the grass and then took it away from the house to eat it. 

Thanks Paul for the video.

  • What a sighting!!!!!

Shareholders were treated to a rare sighting when a Leopard took down an Impala. It dragged the kill into a nearby drainage line.

Will be very interesting to see the activity around the area in the next few days with regards to Hyena or Lion coming in to see if they can get some scraps.

Thanks Anne Beech for the great video and photo.

  • Who says Lions can’t climb trees....?

These Lions chased a Leopard off a kill and then tried climbing the tree to get the Impala kill which the Leopard thought was safely stashed in the tree.

Thanks Craig for the video.

  • A beautiful Snouted Cobra seen on the farm. 

The colours of this snake are something special. This snake hunts actively during the day looking for prey species such as rodents, birds and other snakes.

It is classified as very dangerous with its mixture of neurotoxic and cytotoxic venom but bites are rare as this snake is not aggressive.

Thanks Francios for the video.

  • Great having a Buffalo Herd on the property again. It’s great being able to follow these animals through the bush as you listen how they move through the trees and bushes. 
Hopefully there will be Lions to follow.

Thanks Maria and Heidel for the content.
