Congratulations to great ranger and photographer Brendon Jennings, who had two of his images taken at Kariega Game Reserve appear in the UK newspaper, the Daily Telegraph. The images also appeared on the Daily Mail website.
We received this message from Dr Fowlds this morning. Although it is sad news, we are still positive about Thandi's health and recovery and are sure that her resilience and fighting spirit will prevail. A massive thank you to Dr Fowlds for all your amazing work for Thandi, and all the very hard decisions you have had to make throughout the recovery period. We have no doubt that she could not be in better hands. Thank you too to the surgical doctors, Drs Johan Marias and Alistair Lamont, who flew up from Gauteng without charge to check on Thandi, as well as to Idexx who will be doing Thandi's blood tests. On the bright side, we will be holding thumbs that blood results will reveal she is pregnant!
Thandi the rhino at Kariega Game Reserve has undergone many surgeries and treatments since her horn was hacked off in March last year. This morning, 19 months after she was poached, the Kariega team and Thandi's doctors are preparing for what we hope will be her last treatment procedure.
Nestled in the quiet and untouched bushveld of the Eastern Cape, Kariega Game Reserve is the perfect destination for romantic honeymoon and wedding safaris.
It is very unusual to see an Aardvark during the day. Johanna and her party were very excited to see this shy, nocturnal and sought after animal on their recent safari.
September had so many wonderful highlights and numerous national significant days were celebrated by volunteers on Kariega Game Reserve.
A big thank you from the Kariega Foundation to our guest Anne Leitch from Australia who handed over a bunch of sports shirts to the students at Farmerfield School for the netball and soccer team. The teams are all very excited to play their first match in their official team shirts!
