Rangers Report May 2013

Once again, this month was really good and we had extremely fruitful game viewing! We were fortunate to see the wild dogs yet again. We also saw a lot of general game and had some great night life sightings!  Now that it is getting dark earlier in the evenings, nocturnal animals like African wild cats, genets, civets, honey badgers and porcupines are active earlier on during the afternoon game drives. Winter is...

Although it is not as much as we had in January, with the soil still saturated from the previous rains, this was enough to make off-road driving...

This first month of 2013 was such a delight to be out in the bushveld. It was really full of action and just jam packed. We had some strange weather this month as well. We had really hot days, cold days, windy days and then, of course, also a lot of rain. The...
