For the past month, I have been exploring a vast and endless landscape that has taken my breath away multiple times. And it undoubtedly will continue to do so. I am referring to the beautiful Singita Grumeti Game Reserve in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti in Tanzania.
At this game reserve, I recently had the pleasure of spending several days with a very likable family of four. While the parents had been on safari before, it was the first safari experience for their 4-year old twin daughters. The girls were keen to see their favorite animals: hippos and rhinos.
For the past two and a half years, I have explored the beautiful N’wanetsi Concession that is home to Singita Lebombo and Sweni, and I have had the privilege of sharing this wilderness with a number of guests from around the world.
On so many occasions, being in this wilderness area has taken my breath away. Leaving this area now is conjuring up many emotions — emotions that are ultimately being transformed into ever-lasting memories.
Last week, on September 8, I had an experience that may come only once in my lifetime.
In recent weeks, I and my fellow safari guides and trackers had noticed something different about the so-called Mountain Pride, one of the lion prides residing in the N’wanetsi Concession in the Kruger National Park. Namely, one of the adult lionesses was missing.
A few years back, I created Wild About The Wild to convey the wonders of the wild. My goal was to offer regular educational content on social media — with quality information, blog posts, photos, and videos about wildlife and wilderness.
