In all those years we ( are in the bush we came across many nice sightings.

Most of the time we take only photos but sometimes we take a nice video as well.
Enjoy the wildest bush sightings caught in the act.

All videos are taken by or her clients

Now the Corona virus is dominating the world we think it’s time to assemble our wildlife photos and let the wildlife speak for itself.

Why should you visit Karongwe Private Game Reserve? Karongwe Private Game Reserve, overlooking the majestic Drakensberg mountain range in the Limpopo Province, is set apart from similar properties by the extraordinary lengths we are willing to go to in order to ensure that your stay with us is a memorable experience.

Game drives and nature walks are for the most of us the regular activities which are organized from every safari lodge/camp but at Bateleur Camp Timbavati in South Africa they lift their activities to another dimension.

When you travel to the Okavango Delta, Botswana we from advice you to stay in bush camps like the camps you see in this youtube film.

Imagine yourself waking up in an open luxury tent listening to the birds around you. Wake up underneath a basket shower and sit in front of your tent with a hot tea/coffee. You can join a guided safari walk but just relax in camp is a very good option as well. See elephants and giraffes passing you while they just mind their own business.

Do you get the picture? In that case its time to contact us  and we help you to realize your safari of a lifetime.

How funny this looks if baboons cross a river

Watching a troop of baboons crossing a river is much fun. Keeping their arms up and jump from dry island to dry island most of them stayed pretty dry but some of them made a bad estimate and they ended up in the middle of the water. Watch their reaction. I am sure you will have at least a smile on your face.

Close huge male lion encouter

Sit still and don’t move !! Our tracker acted very cool this close to a huge male lion just on his left side. Check out our shadows to see how close this male lion settled himself next to the open game drive vehicle. An adrenaline rush for all of us but definitely for our relaxed tracker. The lion keeps an eye on him all the time.

Typical African massage

All of you who have ever been on safari in Africa recognize this African massage feeling. Covering ground in the African wilderness is just an amazing feeling. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!!

Wild dog vs impala vs hyena

A very special sighting when we found an injured and pregnant impala. With the wild dogs in the area it meant lots of action.

How do wild dogs feed their young?

After a succesful hunt the dogs return to their den to feed the rest of the pack. This very social animal regurgitate the meat. The pups eat this and keep on begging for more. A special sighting because the wild dog population is decreasing rapidly due to over populated areas of humans, especially in South Africa.

#Timbavati Reserve, South Africa
​What an amazing sighting if you witness wild dogs killing an impala and the hyenas try to steel it but the spotted wolves just take it back.
We are so glad that our clients were there on the right time on the right place.

Listen with sound!!!

How funny this looks when a lion cub bravely climbed into a small tree but once up in the tree its hard to get down the tree again.
Listen with sound!!!

Well done guys.

How amazing is it to see a wildebeest crossing.

Huge crocodiles waiting for you in the river. You managed to cross this river without been eaten than a lioness awaits you on the other bank.
Watch this amazing video taken by our guests the Bezemer family.


Every wild dog pack member is responsible to feed the new born pups. After each hunt the wild dogs bring back the meat to the den to feed the pups. The dogs regurgitate the meat and the wild dog pups enjoy a warm buffet.
