Rangers Report January 2013

It is so exciting to be writing my first report for the year 2013 and keeping you up to date with the highs and lows and everything else happening in the bush. 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...

Rangers Report December 2012

It’s just so unreal to think that this is my last report for the year 2012. Well, what can I say? All great things must come to an end, but the memories of the past year will always remain with us.

This last month was once again very busy,...

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...

Rangers Report September 2012

This month was great, but in a strange and different way than usual. Some days we would have the best weather and couldn’t ask for more and then the next day would be the opposite: cold and rainy, which is a little bit unusual for this time of the year. 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...
