  • 4 Lions took down a Warthog yesterday in the road. They managed to finish off the warthog quickly between the 4 adults. 

We still have Lions all over the property at the moment and shareholders are getting to see them on a regular basis. 

Thanks Michael for the video.

  • Nothing like a front row seat to 20 wild dogs running around the farm. Best view sitting on tracker seat and having wild dogs on the farm again is great.
Seems there is a female in the pack that is very pregnant. Maybe the dogs are looking for a denning site, holding thumbs they den on the farm.
Thanks Traci for the video.

  • Lions cubs walking and playing right in front of the game viewer. They started relaxing when mom called from the bush and they went running straight away into the area where mom was calling from.

  • Purple Roller fluffed up in the morning trying to warm up before the sun comes out.
These Purple Rollers are endemic to Africa and eat all types of insects and sometimes eat small reptiles and mice. These birds are territorial and chase away other rollers and crows.
Thanks Kath for the photo.

  • When it’s the heat of the day and the sightings have dropped down a bit why not come cool off in our pool and enjoy a relaxing midday swim while still being able to see anything walking past.

  • Lions spotted in the Nyala riverbed. 
The evening before they were seen in the same area with females and cubs and some of the smallest cubs. Their mother was still carrying them around in her mouth.
Thanks Michael for the photo.

  • The scorpions are still out most nights. While braaing and sitting around the fire the scorpions can be found running around outside and in the trees. This Parabuthus transvaalicus is one of the 2 most venomous scorpions in the country. We get these on the farm and you can see the incredibly thick tail showing this scorpion is venomous. These scorpions are active hunters.
Thanks Debi for the photo.

Very good sighting getting two different big 5 animals in one shot.
Thanks Heidel for the photo.

  • 11 cubs spotted. They have been hanging around the river, hornbill nest and hanger area for months now. There seems to be 2 different ages in the cubs and they are doing so well at the moment.

Thanks Trevor for the video.

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.
