This is a short montage of some of the animals filmed by the Southern African Natural History Unit (SANHU) whilst working in the Kruger National Park. The variety of animals in Kruger is what makes it so unique, from the humble impala to the magnificent lion and everything in between.
Wild's favourite red-coloured animals and plants!
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day we are sharing some of our favourite red-coloured animals and plants. Red is the colour of love and passion and these beauties know how to flaunt it!
Karoo Journey: Night-time in Camdeboo National Park
The next stop on Scott Ramsay's Karoo road trip for Wild was the Camdeboo National Park. This little protected area – whose name means “valley of green” in the ancient Khoe language – surrounds the historical town of Graaff-Reinet, a place that has more national monuments than any other in the country – remarkable for such a small town in the middle of nowhere!

Irresistible attraction of our wild places
What a feast of colours and textures! Surely there can’t be a better gift for South Africans, especially those who are living abroad, or for visitors to this country, than the latest coffee table book by the well-known Van den Berg shutterbug family. Whether this is your home country, or whether you are discovering it for the first time, the photos are heart-rending and affect you on an emotional level.

The Kgalagadi is a wildlife photographers delight as French photographers Tina and Jean-Marc Malfilatre found out on their visit to the park in 2012. "Our first visit to South Africa was in 2008 to the Kruger National Park. We love to capture the beauty of nature, wildlife stories, special sights and have a particular interest in cheetahs and hyenas."
