Leopards are why it all began

While it's very difficult to pick a favourite animal, especially from the many species we see on safari, but of-course my favourite is the Leopard.
I say of-course as they are the very reason my wife Carol and I moved to Africa i.e. to work in leopard research and conservation. Which lead to us developing On Track Safaris, which in turn funds our conservation work through the On Track Foundation.
Whether it be Asian leopards (seen above) as part of our new Thailand safaris, or working with the African leopard (see below), they remain the focus for our conservation efforts.

Rhino - another story all together

Probably the biggest poaching issue we have in the Kruger National Park area is that of Rhino poaching. With Rhino horn bringing prices of $80,000/kg on the Chinese market, it is a very lucrative, if illegal, business and one we are all working to combat.
Thankfully the game reserves we visit have anti poaching units and regular patrols, which may be expensive, but are needed to protect the species.
Black Rhino (pictured above by safari guests), are now quite rare, but we are often privileged to bump into them on safari.
The White Rhino (above) is a little more common with around 20,000 left in Africa, and we do see them regularly. I can spend hours just watching these prehistoric looking, yet surprisingly graceful, animals and I very much hope that you too can enjoy that experience.

2016 are best safaris ever

Great news....We have upgraded all of our safaris in 2016 to offer more. More big five game viewing, more high quality accommodation and more of the personal touches that we are know for. And all without increasing our prices, in fact right now we can offer discounts on our normal price.
Of-course we can keep our prices down because the Rand exchange rate is currently high against other currencies. As ever exchange rates are very hard to predict, but as long as we can offer discounts we will.
The next piece of exciting news is that we are expanding our work in leopard research and conservation to include several new reserves in Limpopo and have a second base for our leopard research team.
2016 is shaping up to be a fantastic year. There has never been a better time to visit South Africa on safari. Join us on safari and experience the difference.
