Simbambili Game Lodge
A word from our rangers.

12 July to 19 July
Wild dogs once again have been the flavour of the week as sightings go. These rare and elusive animals have been frequenting our traversing area again. This is a pack of six dogs and it was originally thought that this pack of six was part of the larger pack of 12 that move in and out of our traversing, but as a result of the sightings we have been having we can see that these six are a different pack to the others. This pack moves in and out of the Manyeleti Game Reserve and seems to have decided to move more and more often into our area of the Sabi Sands.
The Styx Pride with the 4 females and 5 cubs has also been seen and the cubs are still looking in great condition. While rest of the pride, the two females and the two cubs seem to be in a bad way as there is still no sign of the two cubs after the interaction with the Tsalala Pride, so we can only hope that they are still alive.
The three young male lions that moved in not so long ago are back harassing the buffalo in the area, they are still little bit skittish with the vehicles but they are becoming a lot better and in time will settle down completely.
Until next time
