Ranger Report


Over the past days we have seen almost as much in and around KwaMbili Lodge itself as out on game drive! ...



The elephants are back

Date Posted: 2014-07-27

Another great couple of day up in the northern section of Thornybush:)

The Elephant sightings have been absolutely spectacular. A couple of days ago
 we found a massive breeding herd on our afternoon drive, all swimming and
playing with one another in one of the dams in the area. It was truly an
amazing sighting. Yesterday morning we also managed to find a big herd of
elephants crossing the road . They got up close - the guests really
enjoyed it.

The leopard activity in our surrounding area has been  brilliant. Twinspot
(female leopard) and her cub were found this morning on a kill. We think she  

killed it early this morning due to the fact that there is so much
meat left on the carcass. There were also 3 leopard cubs seen this morning
that belong to a female that we believe comes from one of our surrounding
reserves but unfortunately no sign of the her only her cubs,. We did in fact
see her 3 days ago just walking casually down the road. It was my first time
seeing this female so it was super exiting for me:). A few mornings ago 
we also managed to find Twinspots previous cub (a young male
leopard) extremely close to the lodge.  

Buffalo sightings are always good in Thornybush, We managed to see a massive
herd yesterday afternoon at least 200 animals drinking at one of our dams.
