Baby Animals

As you many of you probably know I am pretty obsessed with UStream TV channel of “Wildearth – Safari (Ustream)” I watch it as often as I can. At the moment it seems in the¬†Djuma Game Reserve and Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin are just bursting with baby animals!

Now there have been a lot of Impala and Wilderbeest and all sorts of herbivore babies being born, but as you can probably guess, there has also been a lot of hunting and eating by the predators. So below are photos of just the first few cutie being born. No baby lions/cubs … Yet!

Pete’s Pond

For all those who read this blog, know that I have become a huge fan of live web cams feeds. Mainly ones of the animal varieties. Safari drives, African ponds. One that I have not been able to watch recently is called “Pete’s Pond”. The camera for this one came down, I think before the end of last year, and it is finally back! Ironically now Djuma Water-cam is down now.

Check it out now!

I promise that you will not be disappointed! Generally for us “Pondies” we watch Pete’s Pond before we watch the Safari’s and came back to, to chat afterwards.
