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

1. How long have you been a professional guide ?

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.

3. What would be you’re all time favorite animal to track and view in Madikwe Game Reserve, and why ?

Elephants, elephants and elephants they are intelligent gentle creatures I just love them.

4. What is your favorite place to visit around Madikwe ?

5. What animal sighting would you still like to have ?

6. Describe why you love Africa and the bushveld ?

Because I was born here, this is my land its in my blood.

  • 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.
