Safari guests enjoying camera trapping at Wild Rivers

All of our guests are given a camera trap to put out on Wild Rivers Nature Reserve during their stay at Rukiya Camp.
Camera trapping has always been very popular with our guests and we often get some interesting results.
The pictures shown are from a regular guest - Maureen who placed her camera trap next to a water hole with good result. Well done Maureen, we're looking forward to your next safari with us in 2017.

You can't win if you don't buy a ticket

The old adage that you can't win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket, works with wildlife viewing as well. The more time you spend in the bush, the better the chance of seeing something different.
Take the wild cat seen above, which we happened upon by chance. My type of lottery win.

The golden hour before sunset

Photographers call the hour before sunset the golden hour. It's the time when predators start to hunt, but moreover its the magical light that makes for great photographs.

Endangered Wild Dogs

We have been very fortunate of late to see wild dogs while on safari. I say fortunate because as a species the numbers are in serious decline across Africa.
Research projects are monitoring wild dog packs using various methods including tracking collars as seen in the pic at the top of the page.
Seen up close, they are the most endearing creatures and a big favourite with our safari guests.

Birding on safari

We're often asked if we cater for birders on safari, and of-course the answer is a resounding yes.
Every safari includes time to enjoy watching and recognising the hundreds of bird species that frequent the areas where we go on safari.
And for those who want a dedicated birding safari...No problems, we run several throughout the year.
