Unusual year

2016 is proving to be a year that produces some very unusual sightings.
This very rare Pangolin sighting had both guides and guests very excited.
Ignoring us, the pangolin went about his or her business digging and burrowing in a sandy place.

Sad News but we fight on

We recently had some very bad news when a leopard was found dead in a poachers snare on the border of one of our research zones.
Unfortunately snaring is sometimes a harsh reality of life in Africa.  Nevertheless, you can imagine how devastated our research team were (as is everyone with a passion for these magnificent cats). Poachers often set snares for bush meat, but these illegal devices also indiscriminately kill many other animals.
It would be easy to be disheartened, but we'll fight on to protect leopards.

Aardvark luck

It is very rare to see Aardvark on safari, but if we do it is normally at nighttime, as these shy creatures are nocturnal.
Imagine then our surprise to have Aardvark on the drive of our Hoedspruit lodge in the middle of the day. However it seems that Sue and Tim (who were part of this safari) had some form of magical powers, as they saw Aardvark on a further two occasions and each sighting was in different reserves.

It all starts here

It may come as a surprise to many people, but most of the school children that we meet in Africa have not seen a Giraffe or Zebra, let alone a Leopard or Lion. That is just one of the reasons that we go to local rural schools - to teach the children more about African wildlife.
We're currently raising funds to take the orphans above to the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation centre, to see animals and interact with local guides.
If you can find it in your heart to help these children  then please donate to our UK charity the On Track Foundation
