  • Walk on the Wild Side in Kruger: Rhino Walking Safaris

    By Melanie Du Toit |

    I marvel at the sky. I've spent the past 15 minutes watching it morph from a midnight-blue to a deep purple before blooming into a glowing orange. This is dawn in the Kruger National Park and I'm about to witness the sun make its lazy ascent over the horizon. The air is fresh as I inhale, not yet having lost its crisp early-morning edge to the bustle of the day. Our ranger from Rhino Walking Safaris has assured us that this is a superb time to catch sight of the park's nocturnal wildlife - especially its predators - as they gradually wind down and head toward a daytime slumber after a night of hunting. In the expansive interior of South Africa's flagship game-viewing destination, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to explore the wilderness on foot. Located in a 12,000...

  • The Magical Treehouses of Lion Sands

    By Melanie Du Toit |

    For those with an adventurous spirit, a romantic soul, or a heart longing to escape from their day-to-day, there are a few magical places to be found hidden among the scatterings of trees within Lion Sands, a 7,000ha African wilderness forming part of the Sabi Sand Reserve. These alluring treehouses put travellers eye-level with some of the area’s 500 different species of bird while evoking a sense of childish nostalgia coupled with intoxicating romance. Whether it's in Chalkley Treehouse, appointed around the trunk of a 500-year-old leadwood tree; Tinyeleti Treehouse, overlooking the Sabie River; or Kingston Treehouse, whose deck skims the top of surrounding trees - guests are promised a secluded night beneath a sky bursting with stars. Here, the secret world that is the savanna...

  • Rare Finds at Cheetah Plains: Birding Safaris

    By Melanie Du Toit |

    The summer rains that moisten the landscape of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve between October and April allow the earth to come alive in many ways—whether it’s in the green shoots springing forth from the earth, the wildflowers seen blooming across the terrain, or the plethora of new-born wildlife entering this lush new world around them. This is also the season best loved for birding, and twitchers, amateur ornithologists, and photographers flock to the area to catch sight of the migratory birds that have moved into the area for the coming weeks and who share the trees and the skies with the reserve’s permanent feathered residents.

  • My Trip | "The Beauty of Cape Town and the Wonders of Londolozi"

    By Matthew Sterne |

    Al Dawson described South Africa as "a study in glorious contrasts that left us with unforgettable images and feelings." He also called it the best vacation that he, Jane Mahoney and Erin Dawson had ever been on. Our consultant, Samantha, arranged a trip that took them from the luxury boutique hotel MannaBay in Cape Town to the incomparable Londolozi in the Sabi Sand concession. Al’s words sum up their experience wonderfully and so I’ll hand it over to him to describe their time here. “The words ‘wow’ and ‘fabulous’ are too often overused. A shame because they fit perfectly the experience Jane, Erin and I had as first-time visitors to South Africa. Samantha at Rhino Africa developed a trip that included the beauties of Cape Town and the wonders of Londolozi. Carel was a terrific guid...
