A candelabra of Vultures in memory of our Rhinos #SaveOurRhino

#SaveOurRhino.

We have been privileged to see the return of the Vulture population to Madikwe Game Reserve over the last couple of years unfortunately it pinpoints the potential devastation of one of our most beloved and vulnerable species.

The sad reality is that Southern Africa and Madikwe Game Reserve is still under severe attack when it comes to the war being waged in Rhino poaching. This last week we saw the loss of two beautiful animals to this inhumane and sad event. Prior to 1991, the area where Madikwe Game Reserve is today consisted largely of degraded cattle farms. As the area was not running efficiently, Settlement Planning Services commissioned a feasibility study to establish the best use of this land. The study showed that the development of wildlife-based tourism in the area the creation of a game reserve would be most beneficial to local communities. What followed was the largest translocation project in the world – Operation Phoenix.

Over a period of seven years, Operation Phoenix reintroduced more than 8,000 animals of 28 species into the newly established Madikwe Game Reserve. The project achieved a number of world-firsts with entire herds of elephant being relocated and the reintroduction of African wild dog into a fenced reserve.

Operation Phoenix is world renowned as the largest and most successful reintroduction programme to date however without some serious help and intervention we stand a chance to loose one of its most iconic animals. The Madikwe Game Reserve Anti-poaching Unit and K9 Unit requires all the help and support they can get with regards to funding. Please contact us direct if you wish to contribute to this cause.

  • The Oryx or Gemsbok.
Oryx can survive long period without water (even a couple of weeks). The gemsbok is generally a grazer but changes to browsing during the dry season or when grass is sparse. It may dig up to a meter deep to find roots and tubers, supplementing its water intake by eating wild tsama melons and cucumbers, which can provide all the water required. .

  • Some days you just need to post sunset pics......beautiful shot taken by our guide Josh. “People who dream when they sleep at night know of a special kind of happiness which the world of the day holds not, a placid ecstasy, and ease of heart, that are like honey on the tongue. They also know that the real glory of dreams lies in their atmosphere of unlimited freedom.”- Out of Africa .

  • The lilac-breasted roller (Coracias caudatus) is an African member of the roller (or Coraciidae) family of birds. It is widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa, and is a vagrant to the southern Arabian Peninsula. It prefers open woodland and savanna, and it is for the most part absent from treeless places. Usually found alone or in pairs, it perches conspicuously at the tops of trees, poles or other high vantage points from where it can spot insects, lizards, scorpions, snails, small birds and rodents moving about on the ground. Nesting takes place in a natural hole in a tree where a clutch of 2–4 eggs is laid, and incubated by both parents, who are extremely aggressive in defence of their nest, taking on raptors and other birds. During the breeding season the male will rise to a fair height (69 to 144 metres), descending in swoops and dives, while uttering harsh, discordant cries. The sexes are different in coloration, and juveniles lack the long tail streamers of adults.
