November ’14 Field Guide Report by Matt

So with much pomp and ceremony, there has been very little rain. A few showers here and there but nothing significant. Instead of sweltering heat followed by thunderstorms which I have been expecting. It has been chilly in the mornings although I refuse to wear a fleece this time of the year on principal. The bush has turned green but everything seems to be … Read More November ’14 Field Guide Report by Matt

March 2013 Safari Journal

The weather: The last rumbles of thunder have faded into the distance and the flickering lightning is finally stilled. Summer is ending and the cool breath of the tropical winter touches us.

Nyenyankulu: March 2012 – (End of an era) Wildlife Journal

The weather this month was perfect. The afternoon showers provided a refreshing relief from the warm days and cleared the air to reveal stunning blue skies.

The clear skies allowed the stars to be enjoyed as we dined in boma and shonalanga (bush dinner site) … Read More Nyenyankulu: March 2012 – (End of an era) Wildlife Journal

Nsunguti : January 2012 Wildlife Journal

So we’re into the summer season now and with the summer season comes an increase in tropical activity off the east coast of South Africa. These summer cyclones that occur usually don’t have an effect on South African weather and tend to move south before approaching the S.A coast line. Rain has been quite a dominant factor this month. Dramatic is an understatement – … Read More Nsunguti : January 2012 Wildlife Journal

Thank you all for the wishes during the floods. The lodge is fine, only the lower deck and our treehouse experienced the wra th of the Sand river. Luckily the lodge was built above the fifty year floodline. Our river views have dramatically improved, a beautiful sand bank has formed and the flood has cleared a remarkable amout of vegetation…a silver lining yet! The … Read More The heavy floods cut-off access to Inyati

The month of September heralds the change of seasons at Inyati Game Reserve. It is a month of many colours, tones and shades. The ground offers up a tapestried carpet of autumnally coloured fallen leaves, with swathes of tiny purple flowers of the Bolusanthus speciosus trees, bright yellows of the Acacia nigrescens flowers and the electric greens of the kigelias. Everywhere there is life … Read More Wildlife Journal September 2011 by Khimbini Hlongwane
