Phinda is by far the best safari experience I’ve had. This game reserve is on a mission to protect the animals. I have so much respect for everyone involved in this game reserve, especially the guides & rangers that teaches you everything you need to know about the South African wildlife. πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ Amazing shot taken by one of the guides: @dewaldabotha #foxxtravelssouthafrica
Spot the πŸ¦› The hippo is among the most dangerous animals in the world as it is highly aggressive and unpredictable. Lucky for us, these guys were friendly! 🌿 SA lesson number one - Safari is a MUST but make sure to do lots of research as some are “fake zoos” where the animals are treated badly. I can highly recommend @madikwesafarilodge and @andbeyondphinda ❀️ #foxxtravelssouthafrica
Animals from the last two days here at Pinda with @petebothams (the park is a 3-4 hr drive NE from Durban). The lions were THAT close!!!!!!! The adolescent male elephants in the video are just having a play fight.......sorting out whose boss. The smaller fella gave as good as he got!
Weekend paw-zzz 🐾 #caturdaycuties
Sometimes the new owner of your building tries to bribe you out of your apartment. Sometimes the grocery store makes you pay $8.79 for yogurt. Sometimes you decide to buy a film scanner because you can’t keep buying excessive amounts of paper and want to see your photographs! Welcome to 2019 — check out the scar on this zebra #ilfordhp5

| | Family Bonding | |  A family bond is one that can never be broken, not matter how hard one tries.  For a mother cheetah, her cubs are her pride and joy, she will put in every ounce of effort to protect them from every danger that lurks in the shadows.  It is never easy for her and there are many challenges to overcome. Moments like this pull in my heartstrings and will be cherished forever!  #mikesutherlandphoto #comeescapewithus #wildgeography #photographer #natureismental #thisissouthafrica #southafrica #nature #safari #africa #iamnikonsa #africansafari #inspiredbycuriosity

Totally unstaged … just a truly special moment captured by our Conservation Manager @simonjamesnaylor at @andbeyondphinda. While out monitoring and observing one of the newly rehabilitated and released Temminck’s ground pangolins on Phinda, Si sat reading the recent @natgeo article on the plight of the pangolin. The foraging pangolin walked over to Si, and paused briefly over the magazine image captured by @brentstirton. “He peered at this great image, paused for some seconds looking at it, and then moved off to continue feeding and looking for ants.” If you aren’t aware of the unspeakable trauma these animals are facing, I urge you to please read the blog I wrote (link in bio) after spending some quality time with these fascinating creatures and their rehabilitation, release and research specialists. Together, this team is leaving our world a better place for the pangolin. #savepangolins @simonjamesnaylor @_nicci_wright_ @africanpangolinconservation @johannesburgwildlifevet @lenosierra
This week we released these 2 young males into the north of the reserve. With cheetah now confined to 9% of their historical distribution range, a significant proportion are conserved in fenced reserves. As these populations are isolated from each other we need to periodically introduce new males to simulate natural genetic recruitment. Welcome to Phinda!  #cheetah #andbeyondphinda #endangeredwildlifetrust #ewt
have you ever seen something so majestic
Our small group trip (“An Elephant In My Kitchen”) just spent a wonderful few days exploring the Phinda Private Game Reserve 🦁@andbeyondphinda offers many wonderful activities to expand your sphere of influence in wildlife conservation — such as a pangolin experience, night drives, & impactful, participative experiences. Not to mention the newly renovated Mountain Lodge provided us with wonderful accommodations to make us feel right at home. * * * The activities planned during this trip truly gave an important purpose to our travels, so we are planning on repeating it in 2020! If you are interested, contact info@holdensafaris.com or visit our website (link in bio) for more info.
If only I could figure out how to turn my safari blanket into a blazer/trouser situation for fall that would be ideal 🍁 (this post got deleted somehow.. so I’m just reposting)

For me, on an African Safari, the guides are what make the experience so special! @andbeyondphinda 🦁 πŸ†πŸ˜
This is a pangolin. An ant-eating mammal covered in protective scales. Wildlife enthusiasts may go through decades of visits to wilderness areas and national parks and never see one. They are rare, elusive and occur naturally at low densities. Yet they they the most trafficked mammal on Earth. Their scales are used in traditional Chinese medicine and their naked bodies are used to make an expensive soup. It is estimated that since 2016 more than 174 tons of pangolin scales - equating to 300 000 pangolins - have been seized by officials in Africa and Asia. It’s hard to imagine that there are any left. The problem is that they are not that hard to catch. Poachers don’t need semi-automatic weapons or axes or wire snares. Just a hessian sack and a bit of reconnaissance. The pangolin is tracked to its burrow and the poachers wait until it emerges to begin its evening foraging. The pangolin responds to danger by rolling into a ball, and the poachers need only drop it into the sack.  When @andbeyondphinda was proclaimed nearly 3 decades ago the land had had its wildlife decimated. We brought the animals back, species by species. The time has come for the pangolin to be reintroduced into northern KwaZulu-Natal, and there is no better place to do it than Phinda, no better team of people to make sure that the project is a success. The pangolins we are reintroducing are coming from the illegal wildlife trade. They’re the lucky few, those rescued from unspeakable trauma and given a second chance. What an incredible privilege it is to be playing a very small part in this venture! Welcome to your new home, little pangolins @andbeyondtravel
