Close-up to Big Cats

Set out in custom-designed photography landcruisers with some of South Africa’s most experienced professional guides. Early morning game drives position you on the track to seek big cats at their most active time in the bush. The afternoon drives leading into spotlit evening returns to camp offer a chance to go in search of more nocturnal species. Not being in public parks also affords a relaxed environment where the game is more visibily habituated and never disturbed by crowding.

Iconic Leopards

Our private setting in one of the largest and most established private reserves in Sabi Sands, arguably the finest leopard viewing hotspots on earth, brings you eventful sightings of these perfect predators: The thrill of tracking prints and sounds to the great satisfaction of finding these amazing creatures in their unaltered environments is something truly special to witness on safari. An adventure of a lifetime.

Track Lion Prides

Our wild location in the north of South Africa, a meeting point of three major safari frontiers, offers phenomenal game viewig with some of the largest prides of Lions in the region. Some 20-strong individuals have been sighted on drives here with magnificent black-maned males at play with their little cubs in the spring. A photographer’s paradise, the region is contributing to crucial research and support for anti-poaching monitoring and funding. Your visit also helps support Lion conservation.

The Big Five & more

Ample opportunities exist to seek out the famous big game renowned in African plains: Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and even the occasional Rhino, getting rarer to spot in Africa, are provided with a safe haven in a true wild environment. Rarer species such as packs of African Wild Dog and Cheetah are also frequently sighted in the peak seasons. Each season, the game reports from our head rangers document a flourishing and successful environment for seeking big and rare game.
