Rangers Diary: 30 May – 5 June ’11

Monday The morning, which started off very slowly with not much happening, suddenly came alive when we found a group of six white rhinos.

Monday This morning was a bit slow to get going, but we eventually managed to find Karula (female leopard). There was no sign of the cubs, so we just watched as she went about her morning business, sniffing around and checking scents left by other leopards. The afternoon drive was a lot busier, starting off …

Rangers Diary: 25 April – 1 May ’11

Monday 25 April We kicked off the morning by finding Karula with her two cubs on an impala kill that she’d hoisted up a tree. We also saw Jordaan (male leopard) in the area, so it was just as well that the wily female had stashed her kill. We spent quite a bit of time …

Monday 18 April We started the morning off by looking elephants. A message on the radio of tracks coming in from the Kruger National Park sent us rushing east to the Kruger boundary, where we found a herd of about 20 elephants milling about and feeding. A little later we found a big male lion …

Rangers Diary: 11-17 April ’11
