Photo cred: J. Nel (c) The cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus, is classified as ‘vulnerable’ in the IUCN Red Data Book List. Cheetah’s are one of Africa’s most endangered big cats. Their numbers have declined by 90% over the past century, dropping from 100 000 to only about 10 000 today. The main reason for the decline is human-wildlife conflict, disappearing habitat, and loss of prey. Namibia has the largest and healthiest

We found a relaxed Brown Hyena just outside the lodge and this seemed to

They also have the ability to be shy or nervous. There are so many ways in which we relate. And there are so many reasons why we must share the space with them, why we must learn to co-exist. 🙌🌄 Photo: @shalamah.tautaiolefue . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #zebra #curious #coexistence #mood #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • Wild dogs may be pretty to photograph, but there’s no mistaking how fierce they are. Being successful pack hunters, they are able to chase antelope for miles until their prey reaches exhaustion. The pack will bite the legs and rear of their prey until they bring it down. During this process, they are incredibly vocal and will eat unbelievably fast. Interestingly, the pups get to eat first - a reverse hierarchy of sorts. 🐾💕 Photo: @jason_block1 - - - #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #wilddog #predator #paintedwolf #fierce #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • We weren’t lying when we said we have the largest lions in Africa. Our lionesses average 160kg, which is 40kg heavier than female lions recorded anywhere else on the continent. They are so robust due to our excellent lion management project, which ensures an ecological balance between predators and prey on the reserve. Careful management maintains a strong gene pool. 👑 📷 Photo: @jason_block1 . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #lions #lioness #big5 #worldrecord #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • It is no wonder that waterbuck camouflage well when their horns scoop up foliage, creating a great headdress 🌿🌼. Apart from the distinctive white ring on their rear, it would be otherwise difficult to spot them. It is incredible how our animals have adapted to their environment. They can eat in peace when they blend in with their surroundings, making it more challenging for the predator. 📷Photo:@breccn . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #waterbuck #antelope #buck #camo #plainsgame #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • A lot can be said by the stance of an African elephant. Their eyes and their body language show a great deal of emotion, especially when they feel discomfort.
