Today we received the latest news and pictures from our friend Sjaan over in Zimbabwe (Imvelo Safari Lodges) that we thought would like to share with you…….

I have put together a few pictures from the last 6 weeks of game at our various camps which I thought you might like to see. 

We have a couple of very greedy Honey Badgers at Zambezi Sands which come to raid the kitchen in search of treats.

The game at Bomani and Camelthorn has been fantastic both within the Park and on our concession.  We had an extremely large Buffalo herd visit the Bomani watering hole for a couple of days in a row with the Lion, Baboons and Giraffe (but to name a few!) keeping us entertained during game drives.

 Jozibanini is quite a special camp geared to the real adventure types out there.  We also have a look up blind at Jozi and it provides some truly amazing photographic opportunities! The ‘Look up Blind’ has been sunk just a few metres away from the camp waterhole and game viewing by moonlight from inside the blind will be an awesome experience.

Nehimba can be described as Elephant land right now.  The Elephant are all thirsty and have decided the watering hole in front of the lodge is nice but the pool is best.  Again, wonderful photo opportunities!

Staying in the Great Karoo, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Samara Private Game Reserve has grown to 70,000 acres of former agricultural land that is being returned to the eco-system that supported so much wildlife before the advent of European arrival. The herds of springbok, wildebeest, zebra, eland and blesbok are increasing and rhino and cheetah have been re-introduced successfully.

Making this part of your self drive bespoke holiday is well worth the extra miles that it could add. As well as the wildlife the scenery here is amazing with views from the mountains that overlook the plains. The lodges are the kind of place you want to be to celebrate a special occasion or for a place to relax completely but with plenty for you to do and see if you are so inclined.

The staff ensure your stay here is special and the guides will delight in showing you want can be achieved when wildlife is given a chance to recover. You will have the opportunity to see cheetah up close and the much talked about and elusive aardvark is seen regularly. Join a walking trip to see the smaller animals, birds and flora that can easily be missed when in a vehicle.

Your guide’s knowledge of all that you see makes this a memorable way of learning about the Great Karoo. Finish your game drive with a sundowner overlooking the plains and watch the sun disappear at the end of an exciting day. It is wonderful to see the return of so much wildlife and to see the dream of dedicated people coming to fruition. Definitely consider making this part of your bespoke, tailor made experience of South Africa.
