The call of the wild can be answered in lockdown

The call of the wild can be answered in lockdown

While we are required to stay at home to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, that doesn't mean we can't escape to the bush and get away from it all...

The roar of the lion. The chirp of the cricket. The call of the fish eagle.

We are extremely lucky as South Africans to have the natural world on our doorstep. Be it your local nature reserve or the splendour of the Kruger National Park, we are able to escape the hustle and bustle of society to really get away from it all and relax.

While this is not physically possible at the moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown, we stumbled across a video which will not only give your nature cravings a bit of respite, but will also allow you to completely chill and get away from the realities of lockdown living - if just for a while.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the African bush with this wonderful video of the Kruger National Park's inhabitants, shot by the incredibly talented Robert Hofmeyr.
