January 2022 Sightings

Posted by Emily on Sat February 12, 2022 in Sightings Report.

A new year brings a new start to the reserve and, with it, a rush of rainfall that caused the mighty Klaserie River to flood the KD bridge for only the second time in recent years. These rising water levels have brought gleeful elephants flocking to swim in the refreshing pools, dousing themselves in thick, wet mud afterwards for an effective sun- and bug-shield. Few sights can bring more joy than these sentient giants trumpeting and rolling with pleasure in the water. Keep reading to find out what other awesome sightings we have been having so far in 2022!

With the summer temperatures heating up, our favourite feline family soon decided the cool river sands below were a better way to spend the day and, one-by-one, migrated to their watery namesake. It was here, enjoying a wonderful view of the pride lying up amongst the reeds, that the Island female leopard and her cub were spotted hiding in a huge Nyala tree just 100 metres away.

"Overwhelmed, the bull collapsed to the ground within minutes and, despite a final surge of adrenaline to regain his feet, he fell back into a thicket by the river. Once down, there was sadly no return for this magnificent beast as one of the males moved in to give the final kiss of death."
