Madzinyo’s Warthog Kill - 24 July 2018
To say that the weather has been a little miserable over the past week here in the Greater Kruger Park would be a little bit of an understatement. The clouds swallowed up the sun’s warmth whenever it tried to give a helping hand. The cold front has brought temperatures right down to single figures, but worst of all was the blustery wind.

Lion Dynamics at Tanda Tula - 18 July 2018
 

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GAME RANGER by Chad Cocking

In my last Week In Pictures I was bemoaning the fact that we had yet to see our new lion cubs this, naturally, that led to their first appearance on the very same afternoon that the blog post was published! I am very happy to report that the last week has provided some great viewing of the two young cubs and the two Zebenine lionesses.

In a previous blog, we examined how adjusting the lens’s aperture helps determine the final exposure of an image. But if you recall the exposure triangle from earlier on in this series, there was a third element that was vital for completing the exposure puzzle. Today’s blog will focus on this very factor. It is,  of course, the ISO settings of the camera.

Not many people would guess that hyenas would be able to dominate lions in an area, but as is often the case, these mostly misunderstood predators are hugely underrated. Given their complex social organisations and the fact that their clans regularly number twenty five or more members, their dominance in such systems should not come as such a surprise.

1 June 2018 - A week of green landscape in photos
After a little over two weeks of leave spent exploring some of Zimbabawe’s national parks, it was wonderful to return to the wilds of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve and see what had been happening at Tanda Tula whilst I was away. One thing was quite apparent upon my return, summer was still not willing to let go of its grip on the landscape, and quite unlike the Kruger National Park, just north of the Timbavati, the bush was still infused with a great deal of greenery. Other than some yellowing grasses, the shades of autumn remain absent.

It has been another exciting week at Tanda Tula Safari Camp. Chad’s pictures give a real perspective to the variety of species that have been seen in just a few days. If you cannot be on safari in the Timbavati yourself, you could live precariously through his beautiful images!
