Ranger Reflections – July 2018 Ruan Roos


Ranger Ruan Roos Camp Jabulani Ranger, Ruan Roos shares his favourite moments.

As guides, we get to spend a lot of our time in the bush and therefore experience amazing events on a daily basis.

With so many photo opportunities, guests often ask how many photos I have. The truth is I have thousands, making it very difficult to narrow my choice to a selected few as each photo is exceptional in its own way.

I eventually decided to submit this choice of images as my contribution to Ranger Reflections.

Pangolins at Camp Jabulani, Kapama Pangolin portrait


Verreaux's Eagle Owl Mtimba – Verreaux’s Eagle Owl


Hyenas at Camp Jabulani, Kapama Curious Hyena Cub

Elephants at Kapama One of our magnificent Kapama elephant bulls


Lions of Kapama Winter makes for excellent photo opportunities: here we see one of the Hoedspruit male lions in the mist of a cool morning. Lions at Kapama The Hoedspruit male a little later in the day


Leopards The Nganakati female is one of our most relaxed leopardesses on the reserve. She is truly incredible and clearly loves posing.


Hyenas at Camp Jabulani Our latest addition to the hyena den. Too cute.


We never know what we will see next, each day we go to work, and that really motivates me. Especially when sharing these experiences with guests that love nature as much as I do!

    Ruan was our ranger while we spent time at CJ in March 2018. He could spot a tiny chameleon on a tree at night from a moving vehicle. He gave us a chance to enjoy the small as well as the large lives that Africa nurtures. Great pics Ruan! – your friends Mark and Brandi from Texas
