Video: Hyena cubs play in the sun

Guests at Royal Madikwe in South Africa recently had the opportunity to watch three young spotted hyenas playing in the morning sun, giving them a chance to reflect on these fascinating creatures and find out more about them.

Video: Lions hunting buffalo in South Luangwa

In South Luangwa National Park, the dry season (also known as the high season) is well known for its excellent game viewing opportunities because the bush is dry and there is less water available, resulting in high game concentrations and density around the Luangwa River.

Northern Zambia: A water wonderland

Northern Zambia is one of nature’s best kept secrets. Sacred, mysterious and beautiful, the rivers cascade in fabulous displays of falling water; remote, uncommercialised, yet truly spectacular. With about 10 different waterfalls in the area, having only visited three we barely scratched the surface and will be back again soon for more. Combine these rivers and falls with the beautiful lakes of Bangwelu and Tanganyika and you have found a real water wonderland.

Lionesses take down buffalo

Guests at Ngoma Safari Lodge in Botswana were fortunate enough to witness this rather gruesome but incredible sighting whilst on a game drive through Chobe National Park: Three lionesses bring down a lone buffalo bull – and it’s not a pretty sight!

Two former circus lions poached at sanctuary

In 2016, 33 lions freed from circuses in Peru and Colombia were transported to South Africa to live out their days in a wildlife refuge. Last week, poachers broke into the sanctuary, killing two of the big cats.

Video: The cutest leopard couple in the Klaserie

Every year our leopard sightings increase and this one, in particular, is special as it it is the beginning of a cycle where the offspring (assuming the mating was successful) will be seen by future guests and become more relaxed around vehicles full of tourists.

Video: Giraffes and the precociousness of youth

The term ‘precocial’ is derived from the word ‘precocious’ and is used to describe animals that are born relatively mature and mobile. Because of the dangers in the bush from predators, it is essential that newborn animals get mobile as soon as possible.

Video: the curious elephant behaviour of play-fighting

From a relatively early age, young male elephants in the same herd will interact with each other and “tussle”. As they get older they will play-fight and as different families intermingle, they will spar with other young males of a similar age from the other families.

Video: the symbiotic benefits of oxpeckers

Some of you may not be to familiar with this little bird, but oxpeckers perform one of the most important roles in the ecosystem. They have this fascinating symbiotic relationship with a number of animals whereby it removes parasites (mostly ticks) from the animal, and in return gets a nice meal.

Video: elephant gets a second chance at life

Elephants in Laikipia have come into the firing line on many occasions with over 20 killed in recent months and many more injured. Many do not make it, but sometimes there is a glimmer of hope.

Video: on safari with lions

A safari is an experience which can only be felt and understood when you actually do it! Many people dream of coming to Africa for a safari and this is not only because of the experience of being close to wild animals, but also the emotion of feeling alive.

The Hide seem to have some new maintenance managers! Check out this video of a pride of lions playing with some rubber pipes near camp.
