Bushwise Safaris Spring Newsletter

Wow – the rains came and within 24 hours our dry bush was transformed into a green landscape. We have had about 140 ml of rain since September.

With the change of season also came the birds – beautiful sightings have been had of, raptors, plum coloured starlings and the lesser striped swallows to name but a few.

Walks from the Lodge along the river have been most productive with guest viewing at least three of the big 5 within half an hour on most occasions. Great excitement when lion made an impala kill right in front of our eyes. The animal sightings in Kruger – well it has simply been spectacular over the past 2 months. This leopard sighting with clients on the open safari vehicle resulted in this picture taken by guests the Corelli Family from Italy… and their safaris just got better.

And yet another magical safari resulted in this pic taken by Wolfgang and Chris van Wingere from Belguim.


Our own resident animals have also started their new year with litter of offspring. Day by day the little ones grow and are becoming playful. No doubt soon they will be as wild and threatening as their parents. These families of warthogs are now regular visitors to the Lodge – we shall watch their progress keenly. A mothers task…

It remains our privilege to live in the truly superb wonderland of ever-changing activity. To those guests who have been in house recently thank you for booking with us we have enjoyed you all. For those of you who are still to arrive we look forward to your visit.
