  • There is a little puddle of water which comes around in the rainy season when crossing this certain drainage line. This puddle has produced some really great bird sightings. 

Here you can see some Blue Waxbills, a Jameson’s Firefinch and a Green-Winged Pytilia in the same photo. 

Great little puddle to get some good bird sightings. 

Thanks Kim for the photo.

  • Elephant herd crossing right in front of the vehicle. We don’t often get nice breeding herds of elephants crossing over the property but it is always great.
We have been really lucky with Elephant sightings lately and they are enjoying the great bush conditions and the amounts of water around.

Our bush condition was the best it has been in roughly 4 years. This has helped us now with the early and good rains. The bush has transformed into great green bush and there is plenty of food around which is attracting all types of herbivores and with that more predators.

Thanks Glen for the video.

  • This photo was taken during full moon at night. The moon is so bright that you can see shadows on the floor. 

On a path headed around the next corner where you never know what can pop out or even just be standing in the road.

  • Something not seen so often, these bull elephants were having a really good time rolling around in the mud. After some good rains so far this season we have lots of water around the reserve. 

Thanks Mandy for the videos.

Focus on Conservation

Jejane continues to proactively support conservation initiatives, directly and indirectly. We encourage shareholders to become involved.

Elephants and bees

Our Bees, Trees, Elephants & People Project continually grows from strength to strength. In November 2019, this project turned four years old, a wonderful achievement on a collaboration that we are very proud to share with Jejane Private Nature Reserve (JPNR). We have also harvested ten batches of “elephant-friendly honey” between 2018 and 2020 – bottling nearly 100 litres of natural honey!

This is part of an MSc research project undertaken by Robin Cook through the University of the Witwatersrand’s Centre for African Ecology Lab (South Africa) to test how effective African honeybees are at protecting iconic trees when compared to the tried and tested methods of wire-net protection which does increase the survival rate of tall trees favoured by elephants as food sources.
