What could warthogs and whales have in common?

Probably not very much except that they were both captured by camera and video this past week and we can’t not share!

In Knysna, South Africa, a local lawyer, and avid fisherman, was out on his fishing boat and captured this unbelievable footage of a whale breaching.

Can you imagine the excitement?  Although probably also quite nerve wracking!

A little further afield at Mliliwane Wildlife Sanctuary in eSwatini (ex Swaziland), a bunch of cute ‘bums’ stole the ‘spotlight’….or should we say, the warmest spot next to the campfire!

Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary offers an array of activities and adventures in the picturesque Ezulwini Valley (Valley of Heaven), flanked by the dramatic backdrop of mountains and the huge Usuthu Forest stretching into the distance. The name ‘Mlilwane’ (‘Little Fire’ in siSwati) was derived from the numerous fires started by lighting strikes on the Mlilwane Hill but now holds significance as the little fire that ignited the conservation movement in eSwatini.

Mlilwane’s diverse habitats support a surprisingly extensive species list. Endless hours of guided and self-guided exploration within the sanctuary are possible due to the relative absence of dangerous game. The southern plains stretch to the striking Nyonyane Mountain (Execution Rock) with its exposed granite peak and historical story.
