Going Garonga

I have just got back from a two-night at Garonga Safari Camp, in the Kruger region of South Africa. Garonga has 6 luxury tents, with private decks and spectacular views overlooking a dry riverbed. Personally, I love Tented accommodation and these are airy and spacious, providing the perfect link between exclusive luxury and the allure of Mother Nature just outside. The guides are very knowledgeable and there is plenty of game viewing on offer, I will let the pictures tell the story. On our second night, we chose to do the "Sleep Out Deck" and it was amazing! Just you and the stars, in the African bush. Not for the faint hearted though, as you are 20 min from the Main camp.... But i would hig

Fur for Life Leopard Project

This past weekend, my Leopard Program colleagues, Dr. Guy Balme and Gareth Whittington-Jones, and I joined thousands of congregants from the Nazareth Baptist Church (more commonly known as the Shembe Church) for their annual pilgrimage. The rapidly growing Shembe Church combines elements of Christianity and traditional Zulu beliefs and has millions of followers across South Africa as well as Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. The annual pilgrimage from High Mountain to the Church’s eBuhleni headquarters near Durban, South Africa, attracts tens of thousands of followers from across the region. © GARETH WHITTINGTON-JONES A group of Shembe men wearing ceremonial garb, most of which is faux

A Ray of Hope for Lions

Could protected areas be the key to protecting Africa’s lions? As many of our supporters know, Africa’s lion population has undergone a significant and sustained decline in recent years; recent estimates suggest that as few as 20,000 lions remain in the wild. Despite Africa’s rapid human population growth, which has driven lions into only 8% of their former habitat, Africa has retained a vast network of protected areas (PA). At least 1.2 million square kilometers of PAs fall in the lion’s remaining range. Together with the University of Oxford’s WildCRU and other partners, we set out to determine if protected areas were effectively protecting Africa’s lions—and how. After studying the

Take me to the Beach [from Kruger]

Now its easy to combine Kruger safari destinations with Mozambique, especially lodges in southern Kruger. Aside from flying to Vilanculos, you can also drive to Maputo and then ferry across to the Machangulo Peninsula. Staying at Machangulo Beach Lodge is good value (4 star, $375 pppn) and provides access to Inhaca Island and a wealth of things to do; snorkelling, scuba, fishing, kayaking, beach walks and more... #Mozambique #beach
