Tanda Tula Safari Camp Game Drive
The last few days on game drive at Tanda Tula Safari Camp have been exceptional and we have been spoilt with a wonderful array of sightings, including the big five.
We managed to find the Machaton pride busy on a fresh kudu kill, with the young cubs fighting tooth and claw for the best bits, and even managed to sneak in right below mom’s chin!
I photographed this hyena not far from the carcass, patiently waiting for the lions to clear off before making its move. Buffalo have been wide spread and the cows have taken advantage of good veld conditions to give birth – this little one doesn’t look much older than a week or two. The Zebenine female’s young cub is almost completely self-sufficient and we have not seen them together for some time now. He was really posing for us and presented a wonderful photo opportunity.
The highlight of the weekend must have been the small ‘herd’ or crash of rhino we found, ten of them all together, yes ten! What a wonderful sight as they grazed in and around the vehicle – a truly unique experience. Scotch later mentioned to me that in his 16 years at Tanda Tula this was the most rhino he had ever seen in one group. The sunrises and sunsets have also been sensational, especially if you can find some vultures in a dead tree to fit in the frame.
