Africa through the eyes of our guests
  • Strolling by gracefully as the golden hour started to settle. A cloud of dust lingered over the bushveld as the herd of elephants moved towards Simbavati Lodges on the exit road. Rumbles broke the peace as all the young elephants playfully moved away from the feeding adults and into their young companion groups.

  • This is Ntombi’s sub-adult cub Hlangana, watching a Bateleur Eagle fly by, giving us a full view of his whiskers. He uses these to support his nocturnal ways around the dense habitat, navigating through thick riverine vegetation in the dead of night stalking prey.

  • Ntombi’s cub, Hlangana, feasting in delight. You can feel a leopards’ eyes pierce right through you as you watch the circle of life unfolding in front of you.
