Since the national lockdown, various wild animals have been spotted in neighbourhoods across South Africa.

One of those neighbourhoods is Silver Lakes Golf and Wildlife Estate. The estate situated in Pretoria epitomises idyllic and peaceful estate living and spectacular views of the lakes and tranquil surroundings.

With a considerable amount of people not roaming the streets, it has made animals more comfortable to explore spaces commonly occupied by humans.
