Some changes in the Sabi Sands for WildEarth

As many of you know the webcam at the Djuma waterhole is one of the oldest wildlife webcams in the world! It was installed by Africam back in 1998 and has pretty much broadcasted unbroken for 19 years. The camera has been controlled by our volunteer zoomies for some years now. In addition to a [...]

The new Cat Reporting

From today WE will be cat reporting differently. Instead of a weekly blog post describing each sighting, WE will be taking it to the cat’s individual facebook pages. This will give you a chance to interact with your favourite cat character in a far more intimate and immediate way.  In other words, every time a [...]

The Cat Report: 2 June – 9 June

Friday 2 June As the day started to cool on the Sunset safari, WE visited the Styx pride and their cubs who were finishing off the last of their buffalo kill. The cubs were feisty, scrapping amongst themselves for the last of the tender bits - the lionesses tolerant but occasionally administering some disciplinary growls. [...]

WE are going to start showing rhinos in the Mara

Since rhino poaching started increasing rapidly in South Africa a number of years ago WildEarth, along with many others, decided to restrict available information on the whereabouts of rhinos. For example in the Kruger National Park this meant no longer including rhinos on their sighting boards, for WildEarth it meant avoiding the showing of rhinos [...]

The Cat Report 26 May – 2 June 2017

Friday 26 May After their morning antics, WE eagerly searched for the Nkuhuma pride again. WE found the cats relaxed and dozing in the afternoon sun; the cubs were playing around and chewing on sticks to alleviate their itching gums. They took their sleeping regime very seriously and save for the flick of an ear [...]

The Cat Report: 19 – 26 May 2016

Saturday 20 May As the chilly night relented, the sunrise was welcomed on the Arathusa grasslands by the shivering WE crew. As WE were enjoying the golden sunrise, we were met with the golden gaze of the beautiful leopardess, Shadow, alert and on the lookout for potential danger or perhaps prey. Shadow’s alert outline was [...]

A royal celebration in honor of the missing Queen!

As many of you will know by now, our great Queen, Karula, has been absent from our LIVE safaris for just over two months. With no trace of her being reported anywhere the chances of ever finding our beloved queen dwindle each day she is gone. At 13 years old Karula has certainly lived a [...]

Cat Report 12 – 19 May 2017

Friday 12 May Friday’s sunset safari and another cat week began with the leopardess Salayexe, who was reclining in the tree as she fed off her impala kill. At one point she climbed down, calling out (possibly her two year old cub Tiyani, who remained unseen but nearby) and sniffing constantly at the ground, before [...]
