Rangers Report November 2012

As we are getting closer towards the end of the year, one would think that we have seen and experienced all the interesting things the bush has to offer. But just as we think things can’t get any better, the bush spoils us with yet another great natural wonder. It is once again that  time of the year when we welcome the brand new impala, warthog and wildebeest babies! The first newborn impala was spotted on the...

Rangers Report October 2012

The month of October once again lived up to our expectations! It was action packed, full of new life and it even had a few surprises. We had some spectacular evenings where the skies lit up in wonderful colours, due to the electrical storms we had. What can I say? Summer is here and we had a few really hot days this month. The mornings and evenings are lovely and warm and we finally took the blankets and hot water...

We had a total of 95mm of rain this month and the average maximum temperature was 27 °C. With all this lovely rain, it still didn’t stop us from going out on...

Rangers Report August 2012

This month was action-packed with a steady mix of amazing sightings, a tad of mystery and a whole lot of action. The only downside to the month was the strong winds we experienced for a few days, but which are quite normal for this time of year. Strong, stormy winds can sometimes make game viewing a bit more difficult, but luckily they never last very long. I always tell my guests that one quiet game drive in the...

Rangers Report July 2012

This month we had some really cold drives in the mornings and late afternoons and it even snowed in some parts of South Africa. Although it was colder than we are used to, we still can’t complain as our midday temperatures were still wonderfully pleasant, with a maximum average of 24?C. We had another wonderful month of game viewing and we were fortunate enough to view a pangolin (scaly anteater) one late...
