The long-awaited rain has finally arrived, and it arrived with a bang, with about 70 mm falling over the course of one evening. The low levels of the Sand River are due to rise and the green grass is set to burst through over the next week or two, and only just in time, as the impala ewes are almost bursting, so heavily pregnant are they!
The week saw a furious clash between the Mhangeni and Tsalala prides, with the Majingilane putting in an appearance that is becoming rarer and rarer these days.
Enjoy this Week in Pictures…

Fantastic images this week.
Lovely thanks James. Wow 70mm of rain, you are so lucky, we still have had none here in Alberton 🙁 I look forward to the transformation & the first lambs
Your pictures make me miss the wild Africa
Fabulous pictures James. I love this contact with Africa and long to be there again soon.
Gorgeous, esp the Tsalala lioness. Great capture.
Beautiful images James, especially the very regal Majingilane. The Hyena cub and Mom is also an incredible shot to have captured. Thanks for a great blog and a wonderful week in pictures!
Will we hear any more about this scuffle between the Tsalala and Mhangeni prides? Love the pictures of the young Tsalala lioness. Photo of Tutlwa enjoying her territory is pretty sweet too.
