Be involved in protecting leopards

There are several ways that you can support our work in leopard conservation. For example by joining any of our African safaris. Or if you can't make it to South Africa then the next best thing is to become a member of our camera trappers club and we'll bring South Africa to you.
As part of our leopard research program we have a network of camera traps operating in game reserves in Mpumalanga and Limpopo, South Africa, monitored by our research team.

Thornybush favourite

We have been visiting Thornybush Game Reserve on our safaris since we began in 2007. Over the years it has been the most popular reserve with our guests, with Tangala Safari Lodge being a big hit.

The best answer we can give

The question we're asked most frequently at the beginning of a safari is....... "what will we see?" 
Sounds like an easy one to answer and of-course is part of the excitement of coming on safari. But you will find that any guide worth his or her salt, will hesitate to answer.
Sure the game reserves we visit are home to an abundance of wildlife species, but nature calls the tune and on any day we can never be sure of what will happen. After all that is the beauty of a safari.
What we can say is that in over ten years of running safaris we have never failed to delight our guests with wildlife sightings. That's the best answer we can give.

Specialist artists safari and workshop

Meet Kerry Kerry Newell.
Our artists workshop safaris welcome artists of all standards to enjoy the creative beauty of a South African safari in the company of international wildlife artist and tutor Kerry Newell. 
We combine the thrill of a wildlife safari with your passion for art, encouraging the development of  artistic skills, while experiencing Africas sensational light, space, abundant wildlife and magnificent landscapes. All the while enjoying luxurious accommodation and our award winning service.
Kerry will lead small groups from beginners to experienced artists (and non-painting partners), to South Africa in 2018.

Kerry Newell is a professional wildlife artist based in Cheshire. Her services as a commissioned artist are sought by clients across the UK and further afield in Australia, America and Switzerland. 
Her mission is to ignite, inspire and encourage the creative flame that lives in all of us and through her exhibitions, teaching and demonstrations, bring about an awareness to the plight of so many of this worlds diverse and beautiful creatures, whilst having the amazing opportunity to combine her lifelong loves of wildlife and art.
Born in rural Leicestershire, England in 1966, Kerry has always held a passion for art and wildlife. Since her first commission of British wildlife at the age of 14, Kerry has grown to become a highly sought after wildlife artist. 
Her keen eye for detail has earned her high recognition with the world famous art material manufacturers Caran d'Ache who commissioned Kerry to produce paintings for their headquarters in Geneva, a collaboration that continues to this day.
Kerry also finds time to share with and inspire others through teaching. And this is undoubtedly where her charismatic and effervescent personality comes into play. 
For whether it's running her Wildlife Art Workshops, demonstrating to art groups and societies, talking to students in schools and colleges, or gently encouraging and guiding an individual through 1:1 tuition, Kerry has without any doubt a very rare quality of wanting to share her talents with others. This generosity to share coupled with her capacity as a patient conscientious teacher and her absolute passion for the subjects she portrays inevitably creates a confidence that is both tangible and better still contagious to all who have the privilege of knowing her.

On reflection

Rivers, waterholes and dams are obviously a great place to see and photograph wildlife, which is why all of our safaris ensure we maximise opportunities to visit water while on game drive.
Of-course our safari base (Rukiya Safari Lodge) sits on the banks of the Blyde river providing game viewing opportunities even while in camp.
