Magic elephant sightings in the Manyeleti Game Reserve recently after plenty of rain. Mud puddles galore and the elephants are celebrating. It's a special time in the bush when the details speak louder than ever. The grass is thick, water is abundant, and youngsters are everywhere. So are the scorpions and the mosquitos with the humidity at its peak! African summers are trying but so incredibly beautiful. Check out our Stories for more from this awesome sighting.

"The simple thing about preserving your habitat is then you are preserving everything else. Because if you don't preserve your habitat, you're going to have nothing else, and I think that's the key to conservation everywhere." Anthony Marx is the conservation manager of Maunge Private Nature Reserve on Mozambique's northern border with Gonarezhou. In this interview, Brett talks to Anthony about his work in Muange; an area that is being rehabilitated and restored to a natural wilderness. Creating a reserve where wildlife is protected and nature remains pristine means giving the adjacent communities the opportunity to be employed and receive an income from it. Anthony and his team are working hard to counter poaching and work with the community that owns the land so that tourism can rebuild and the people can benefit from the presence of a wild environment, and not rely on poaching as a livelihood. #wilderness #tourism #conservationmanagement #safari #ecotourism #bretthorleysafaris #conservation #wildlife #mozambique #careers #maunge #adventuresontheafricancontinent #habitatpreservation #mutembasafaris

Africa's most endangered large carnivore, seen sprinting through its homeland in the highlands of Ethiopia! The Ethiopian wolf spotted by @darrylharries and shared with us, complete with BHS peak cap, making this a very worthy and awesome #BHSwishyouwerehere moment! What an incredible thing to see in the wild. There are only an estimated 400 individual wolves left and they are endemic to Ethiopia where they exist in only a handful of isolated populations. Incredible. Thank you for sharing, Darryl! #ethiopianhighlands #ethiopia #ethiopianwolf #endangeredspecies #mountains #travelethiopia #travel #africa #nature #wildlife #adventuresontheafricancontinent #bretthorleysafaris

Pure magic in the remote wilderness of Sossusvlei, Namibia, captured perfectly by our guest @garylisney who has kindly shared an album of his fantastic photography with us since returning home. This harsh and hostile landscape is staggeringly beautiful and full of the most amazing life, and the wide open spaces of nothingness make sitting under the stars even more mystical. These constellations shine so brightly in the desert. We look forward to sharing more of Gary's photos. Prepare to feel green with envy! Here, Gary and co are sitting around the campfire at @wearewilderness Kulala Adventurer Camp in the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve. Swipe for stars! #namibia #astrophotography #sossusvlei #kulalawilderness #kulalaadventurercamp #desert #stars #starphotography #bretthorleysafaris #adventuresontheafricancontinent #explore #discover #nature #wilderness

Incredible rock art at Twyfelfontein in Namibia - a famous and protected viewing site for these historic etchings engraved by the first people of Africa, thousands of years ago. The series of images coherently illustrates the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and ritual practices of the time - totally fascinating and a not-to-be-missed heritage site in Namibia. How many different animals can you see?

Some more from our action-packed safari in the Timbavati last week where we enjoyed plenty of predator sightings. These wild dogs were on a roll feasting on impala before the hyenas arrived to break up the party. We were very lucky to get such a great couple of days seeing these endangered predators.

These are some of the most dangerous animals in Africa. Buffalo have forever been considered unpredictable, formidable beasts, and they have proved their reputations time and time again. Bulky grazers, mud-wallowers, armed with not only a vicious head of horns, but a temperament to match. When you know the untamed African buffalo, you know exactly why it's one of the Big Five. Viewing these animals on foot is always treated with extreme caution. Here are experienced and passionate safari guides and conservationists @heinmyers and @antmarx04 watching a herd move in, taking the opportunity to photograph these brutal beings at eye level from a carefully selected spot behind a mound. Experiences on foot in the bush are what set your soul on fire! ** Find out more about our #bretthorleysafaris walking trails in Timbavati and Pafuri via the link in our bio. 2019 Rates and details are up! #djuma #djumagamereserve #vuyatela #sabisand #buffalo #bigfive #safari #wildlife #walkingsafari #walkingtrail #onfootsafari #nature #wildlifephotography #bhstravel #bretthorleysafaris #adventuresontheafricancontinent #africantravel #africansafari #authenticsafarishonestadvice

Another winning sequence from our leopard sighting at Djuma. An intense moment when Thandi got her guard up and snarled through the grass. Well captured by @kevinmaclaughlin from the back of the vehicle. #djuma #djumagamereserve #vuyatela #sabisand #leopard #bigcats #safari #wildlife #predator #africancats #carnivore #nature #wildlifephotography #bhstravel #bretthorleysafaris #adventuresontheafricancontinent #africantravel #africansafari

When Thandi hauled her kill into this apple leaf tree, she easily manoeuvred it into place where it would be safe for her to feast on it throughout the night, but as we were watching we weren't sure how her growing cub Tlalamba was going to fit up there with her, but she was going to find a way. In this photo, Thandi was looking down at Tlalamba about to scale the trunk of the tree and squeeze onto her branch with her, and in the next pic you can see Thandi has taken a backseat as her cub takes control of the carcass, re-positioning it to suit her. It was quite amusing to watch Mom sit back and watch her youngster struggle with the skillful act of propping a deadweight duiker up securely. There were a few nervous moments as we watched the carcass dangle precariously, but when we left them all three bodies were seemed pretty snug on the one suitable branch. Fantastic sighting.

Beautiful sighting of female leopard, Thandi, who was feasting on a duiker kill with her cub, Tlalamba, lying in the grass behind her.

Our trip to Djuma gave us an opportunity once again to talk wilderness, conservation, and ecotourism with some esteemed people in the industry. Brett sat down to talk to our friends and colleagues who joined us in the most sensational setting and organic conversations rose around what wilderness means to us all and what it takes to conserve it. Fascinating points of view from individuals who have spent decades in the thick of it, and others whose early careers are taking them to some of Africa's remote areas. It means so much to connect on these topics and hear from our colleagues about what has converted them to life in the bush! Thank you to @antmarx04 @heinmyers and @chefenroute for sitting down for a chat and for saying a few words on camera. Videos coming soon. Thanks @chefenroute Chef D for taking these behind the scenes shots👌 #djuma #sabisand #greaterkrugerpark #lowveld #safari #conservation #peopleofthewilderness #djumaprivategamereserve #storytelling #wilderness #bretthorleysafaris #ecotourism #adventuresontheafricancontinent #filming #interview #conservation #connection

That's one way to start a game drive! We watched this leopard and her cub feeding on a duiker kill and then it only got better when she treed her prey right in front of us. Soon her cub joined her in the apple leaf making it totally epic! Sabi Sand doesn't disappoint and Djuma Vuyatela enjoys total exclusivity. The only ones we share with are the crew from @safariliveofficial! Great video from @chefenroute. #djumagamereserve #djuma #djumavuyatela #leopard #sabisand #bigcats #safari #gamedrive #krugersafari #wildlife #gamedrive #greaterkruger #southafrica #bretthorleysafaris #bhstravel #adventuresontheafricancontinent

The WINNERS of our Djuma 2-night giveaway have been selected! 🐾 Congratulations to Hein Myers, and Rod and Donna McCurdy, who will be joining us at one of Brett's all-time favourite Southern African safari destinations! 🐾 We look forward to spending some time in the bush together, but first we have to say a special word of thanks to everyone who responded to our email and entered this competition. Choosing a winner was a truly tough decision to make, which is why we opened up two bedrooms instead of one! Every email we received was full of inspiration and love for the bushveld, and we feel incredibly touched by the messages. 🐾 If anything, this has been a great reminder of how very lucky we are to live in this part of the world where safaris, wilderness, wildlife, and nature are at our fingertips. We want to make dreams come true for every one we can, and strive to create safaris that speak to the innate appreciation we all have for the wild and wonderful areas we visit. 🐾 We've learned that we have some true supporters and passionate wildlife lovers out there, so thank you for following our journey and for taking the time to write to us! We'll be sharing our Djuma experience with Hein, Rod and Donna, so be sure to check in and see what the Sabi Sand has in store! In the mean time, set your reminders for this afternoon's @safariliveofficial episode, coming straight out of Djuma Private Game Reserve! 🐾 Photo courtesy of Djuma Private Game Reserve #competition #bhstravel #adventuresontheafricancontinent #bretthorleysafaris #entertowin #winnerwinnerchickendinner #safari #winasafari #travel #travelcompetition #djuma #djumaprivategamereserve #sabisand #sabisandsafari #sabisandgamereserve
