Manager’s Report – October 2012

WILD PHOTO OF THE MONTH Welcome to the land of the green! Photosynthesis and precipitation are wonderful combinations that cause the vegetation to transform from brown to green. The Sabi Sand Wildtuin currently looks like something you read about in fantasy books. The impala females are bursting at the seams. They are due to give birth any day now.
