Meet the team at Jamala Madikwe

Lazarus Boikie Nokane or as he is affectionately known by all the Jamala-ian’s……Lazzie.

Lazzie has worked as a professional Ranger/Guide at Jamala Madikwe since 2010. Humble, gentle and compassionate few guides could fit the Jamala spirit better than this legend. He was born in Madikwe Game Reserve on an old farm called Leeuhoek “Lioncorner” near Ambush Alley and holds an incredible amount of knowledge about the land and it’s inhabitants. When Laz is in tune with the bush his intuition and ability to quietly track game will take you’re breath away. (Image by guests Lara Cowtan and Stuart Vincent)

We sat down with Laz and asked him a couple of questions

2. How has Madikwe changed over the years since your childhood ?

It has changed a lot, for the better, there are now numerous opportunities for work for the local communities. The land is still as beautiful as it has always been.

  • Today we celebrate World Rhino Day 2019 - This day is both a celebration of the important conservation work conducted by the individuals behind the counter-poaching units and this incredible species itself. 
We are also reminded of the many Rhinos we have lost and how every single persons involvement, understanding and contribution can assist in the future protection of this species.
