Hopeful. Is the feeling i experience whenever im blessed to share some time with these little guys.. Considering the very harsh 90% mortality rate.. --------------------------------------------------------------------- 'The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.' ~ Barbara Kingsolver. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #conservation #cheetah #endangeredwildlife #nuts_about_wildlife #wildlifepic #africageophoto #natgeoyourshot #capturethewild

Breather... A male cheetah catching his breath after a failed hunt.. Probably one of their weakest points, the large amount of time nessasary to catch their breath and cool down.. Its when their enemies get the best chances to wipe them out sadly. Adult mortality is one of the most significant limiting factors for the growth and survival of the wild cheetah population. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "Breath is the finest gift of nature. Be grateful for this wonderful gift." ~Amit Ray. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #conservation #cheetah #africageophoto #africageographic #natgeoyourshot #capturethewild

Little babyface. The youngest little elephant on Zimanga at the moment.. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "Take advantage of it now, while you are young, and suffer all you can, because these things don't last your whole life." ~ Gabriel García Márquez. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #raw_community_member #natgeoyourshot #elephant #wildlifeplanet #wildlife_vision

Full on focus.. Or so it seems, when you lock eyes with the king of beasts and it feels like he's decoding your soul, he stares right threw you.. Only to realize that you are blocking his view of the vultures circling in the distance behind you. --------------------------------------------------------------------- "When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you." ~ Stephen Richards. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #lionsofinsta #lionsofafrica #lionsofafrica_ #africageophoto #joysafaribay #wildlifephotographyofinstagram

The comfort of mother's presence. A young cheetah cub looks up from a session of suckling.. Our star Jika and her 3 cubs are doing very well and its super exciting watching these little things become beautiful big cats.. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- "In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe." ~ N.K. Jemisin. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #raw_community_member #natgeoyourshot #cheetah #endangeredwildlife #nuts_about_wildlife #wildlifepic #cheetahtopic

Brothers.. The Zimanga coalition takes a moment to strengthen their bond.. The relationship between male lions in a coalition can be as close as any human relationship, with things like fighting over girls and food and sleeping arrangements being quite normal.. But in the end the brother bond remains. --------------------------------------------------------------------- "In death as in life, we stand together, always a family, always a team. The brotherhood never dies." ~ Marcus Luttrell. --------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #conservation #lion #lionsofafrica #lionsofinsta #lionsofafrica_ #natgeoyourshot #africanlion

This bull.. A young male elephant takes a drink from Zimanga's main dam - Hlambanyathi dam. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- "It is a difficult thing―if not impossible―to forgive oneself for foolish errors, not for trampling a life or goring another with sharp horns, but for being the fool who opened the gate and let the bull out, blind to potential consequences." ~ Richelle E. Goodrich. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #conservation #elephant #raw_reflection #natgeoyourshot #capturethewild #africageophoto

Little cheetah pondering life.. One of Zimanga’s little cheetah stares into the bushveld taking in his surroundings.. ------------------------------------------------------------------ "No one is so old that he cannot live yet another year, nor so young that he cannot die today." ~ Fernando de Rojas. --------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #wildography #conservation #cheetah #endangeredwildlife #nuts_about_wildlife #wildlifepic #africageophoto #africageographic

Sowing the seeds.. A pair of lions get it on, they thought it fitting to do this on the dam wall which made for good angles 😃 ----------------------------------------------------------------- "The future is our present for the next generation. It's our duty and our total responsabilty to leave a good deed from our gifts. The way we live our present will lead to a good gift or the worst of nightmares for generations to come." ~ Ana Claudia Antunes. ------------------------------------------------------------------ #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #raw_community_member #natgeowild #capturethewild

Tall and proud.. One of the bigger giraffe bulls towers over the zululand bush.. This shot taken from a large open patch of grass on top of a koppie. A great vantage for this dominant bull to view his range.. ----------------------------------------------------------------- "Some day you will look back at your struggling days and feel proud of what you have achieved." ~ Avijeet Das. -------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #raw_community_member #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_conservation_official #giraffe #getawaymagazine #africageophoto #africageo

You again.. One of the adult female lions briefly lifts her head when she heard our approaching vehicle, this was the cover she chose from a light drizzle.. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it." ~ Maya Angelou. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #marvelous_animals #wildlife_conservation_official #raw_community_member #natgeowild #capturethewild #nikon

Smiley.. The toothy grin of a crocodile, often with the evening sessions at the lagoon hide we are surprised with guest appearances by these beautiful reptiles.. ----------------------------------------------------------------- "Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it." ~ Rabindranath Tagore. ------------------------------------------------------------------ #ty_kruger #zimangaprivategamereserve #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturethroughcamera_ntc #zimanga #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeofinstagram #nature_brilliance #naturephotography #raw_africa #raw_allnature #raw_animals_africa #raw_animals_action #raw_community #animalsofinstagram #big_cats_nature_photography #featuredwildlife #animal_sultans #africa #raw_community_member #natgeowild #capturethewild #marvelous_animals #nightphotography #night_shooterz
