Rangers Diary: 4-10 April ’11

  Monday The start of a new week, hopefully it will be as good as the last one. We headed off to the east of the property and were lucky enough to find Thandi, but unfortunately her cub was nowhere to be seen. After spending quite a bit of time with her, we moved along …

Rangers Diary: 28 March-3 April

  Monday This morning was still very wet and quiet, so all we managed to see was a herd of elephants. The afternoon more than made up for it however, when we ran into a lone buffalo bull and a herd of about forty elephants with a group of lively youngsters in quick succession. After …

Rangers Diary: 21-27 March

Monday This morning we found the mother and daughter cheetah pair lazing around on our airstrip. The mother was limping slightly, but judging by how she moved it was most probably nothing more than a small thorn stuck in her paw. After that we found the pack of seven wild dogs and followed them as …

Rangers Diary: 21-27 February

Monday The dawn of a new week, let’s hope it’s a good one! We heard the Majingilhanes roaring to the east early this morning, long before any of the guests were awake. That decided our plan for the morning drive – we would track these four male lions again. It didn’t take us long to …

Rangers Diary: 14-20 February

Monday 14th Today got off to a pretty good start, with general game being in great abundance. We headed towards a well known pan, and came across some very fresh female leopard tracks en route. We investigated further on foot, and found Safari with an impala kill she’d hoisted up a tree. After that we …
