Photo of the Week - a close up of Thandi in the half light of dusk
Archive for 2013
The rosy dawn had barely touched the hilltops when first we heard the unmistakable call of a black backed jackal, Eeeyaaa ya ya ya, surely one of the most evocative sounds of the African veld. That night, sitting around the camp-fire, we heard it again. Throughout South African country areas (except in forests and swamps) one is likely to hear their weird, wild cry.
As promised here are the first images of the new white rhino calf which was born around the 6 March 2013. It seems we welcome a baby girl! These great images were taken by Kariega Game Reserve ranger, Chelee Brown. Thanks Chelee!
While we remember the lives of the rhino that were lost to poaching in March 2012, Kariega Game Reserve is fortunate to celebrate the arrival of a new white rhino calf almost exactly one year on.
This great shot of a female serval was taken by our ranger Brendon Jennings at Kariega Game Reserve South Africa, and uploaded onto Kariega Facebook with the following caption:
January and February 2013 can be recorded in the history books as the most adventurous, crazy and amazing two months in the life of a Kariega conservation volunteer (well that’s my opinion for somebody that’s been here for 2 days longer than the first 2013 volunteers). It started off with the elephant herd visiting our house 20 minutes after I arrived with the first volunteer group.
