Manager’s Report June 2015

And so we have reached the halfway mark for 2015! Hot summer days are something from the past and we are enjoying crisp winter temperatures. This month, we placed the patio heaters and burners back in the boma and we also have the blankets and hot water bottles back on the game drive vehicles.
