Our guests were treated to an amazing sighting last weekend when they encountered a mama Cheetah with her six adorable cubs while on a safari game drive around the Nyaruswiga plains, on the way back to the One Nature campgrounds. These notoriously shy felines surprised our delighted guests by passing right by our vehicles, giving them all the chance to snap some truly insta-worthy shots! www.onenaturehotels.com
The Black Rhinoceros is a critically endangered member of Africa’s “Big Five” that is often hunted by poachers because of its horn’s so-called medicinal uses. None of these curative claims has ever been proven true though, and there are even reports stating that these mythical “health benefits” are actually stories perpetrated by criminal syndicates to encourage more demand for the illegal trading of Rhino horns. www.onenaturehotels.com
Caring for, nourishing and training of a lion cub are almost solely the responsibility of its mother and later on, the other females in its pride. These energetic cubs start running at around 4 weeks old, and by the time they are about 3 months old, they start accompanying their mother on hunting expeditions, keenly watching and observing from the sidelines how their fearless mum takes down its targeted prey of the day. www.onenaturehotels.com

Don’t miss out. Witness the exhilarating sights of the Serengeti’s ever-changing sky lights as well as the amazing animals living wild and free atop or within the branches of the trees. www.onenaturehotels.com
Both the male and female Yellow-throated Sandgrouse are beautifully patterned and have a distinct buff-yellow chin and throat. They are typically monogamous and pairs split their time caring for the eggs, with the female incubating the nest during the day and the male doing so at night. www.onenaturehotels.com
The Mwanza Flat-Headed Rock Agama, is aptly nicknamed the “Spiderman Lizard” because of its vivid red and blue colouring. This stunning color combo however, is only donned by a lounge’s dominant male. And much like its superhero counterpart, it also has a sensitive “spidey sense” that spurs it to change its color to a more unobtrusive dull brown when it feels threatened.
Cape Buffaloes are often led to and from their grazing areas and water sources by the herd’s most dominant bulls and cows. Unlike the lower-ranking members of a herd, these high ranking buffaloes are free to travel in front and graze at the center of the troop, which gives them the best choice of grass and additional protection from predators.
While the male Kori Bustard adopts a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude when it comes to mating and nesting, its female counterpart behaves quite differently. A Kori Bustard mama is so attentive to its nesting duties, that it stays in the nest almost the entire incubation period rarely drinking and eating.
