Manager’s Report March 2013

WILD PHOTO OF THE MONTH I think I can safely say that the summer’s heat is over and that autumn is arriving.

Manager’s Report November 2012

WILD PHOTO OF THE MONTH What a month we had! The game viewing was once again brilliant with wild dogs fighting hyenas and leopards, as well as wild dogs killing three juvenile impala in one sighting. As mentioned last month, the juvenile impalas were on their way with the female impalas walking around with huge tummies.
