Manager’s Report December 2012

WILD PHOTO OF THE MONTH The year 2012 has come and gone, almost like a ghost in the night. Overall, I must say that it turned out to be another great year at Elephant Plains! The first month started a bit hectic due to the floods we had, but from February onwards it was full steam ahead.

After the cold front we had three days of intense heat, followed by four days of very early rains. We don’t...

Manager’s Report August 2012

WILD PHOTO OF THE MONTH You can smell it: Spring is in the air! During the early mornings, the air that you breathe has a fresh, moist feel to it. The light is turning a softer shade and the bird songs one can hear in the mornings are becoming more and more frequent as the build-up to Spring starts in earnest. The calls of the Greater Honeyguide, a sure sign of the changing of the seasons, are heard on a daily basis...
