Photo by @riaanfouriephotography | Winter’s days provide excellent opportunities to view hippos. They’ll often leave the safety of the water to bask in the warm midday sun, but will charge back to their watery shelter at the slightest disturbance.

Never a dull moment. Spa therapist, @rochellevisser snapped this image of a beautiful elephant bull, nonchalantly strolling past her desk.

Image by @andre_fourie_sa | Winter in the Lowveld is an excellent time to view the nocturnal predators.

The days are shorter and cooler, and the cats generally become active much earlier than they would in the summer months.

Andre and his guests did not have to wait very long for this leopardess to wake from her daytime slumber high in a Marula Tree and descend just as the sun was starting to set.

Royal Malewane field guide, @nikolas_vounnou recently completed his practical assessment for the FGASA Special Knowledge and Skills (Dangerous Game) qualification.

Only 40 professional guides in Southern Africa have ever obtained this ‘holy grail’ of field guiding qualifications, six of whom now reside at Royal Malewane.

Well done Nik, on this amazing achievement!

Father’s day got off to a flying start with the ‘Sandringham Sisters’ visiting the lodge waterhole at first light this morning.

Royal Malewane guest, @osman_james was quick with his camera, and took this picture from the lodge deck during morning coffee.

The two sisters (one white, and one a ‘normal’ tawny color) are living dangerously, and encroaching further and further into the Blackdam Pride’s territory.

Photo by @darrelcs | Today we bode farewell to our Tanzanian counterparts and friends, John and Baraka, which also marked the conclusion to the South African phase of our East Africa exchange program.

A total of six East African guides have visited us since the beginning of the year as part of a mentorship program with the Royal Malewane guides.

The main aspects of their training involved approaching potentially dangerous game on foot, and advanced rifle handling and safety techniques.

The next phase will see the Malewane guides getting an opportunity to each spend six weeks in Tanzania and Kenya, sharing knowledge and guiding in some unfamiliar territory.
