  • All the cubs are good and well. There was a stretch of time over December and January where they cubs weren’t seen and we were getting worried about the cubs but good to see all of them still looking strong.

Thanks Keegan for the photo.

  • One of our prettier summer visitors.
A Violet-backed Starling.
This bird is an intra-African migrant coming from tropical Africa. They come here to breed. They are occasionally parasitized by Greater and Lesser Honeyguides.
Thanks Andrew for the photos.

  • Very good sighting and some interesting behavior. 
Birds mob a Boomslang in a tree to ensure the snake doesn’t get to their nests. They mob the Boomslang so much that it decides it is not worth it and bails.
Thanks Craig for the video.

  • Parabuthus transvaalicus, one of the most venomous scorpions we have in the country.
This scorpion comes out in the summer months.
You can clearly see in this photo the thick tail and tiny pincers meaning that this scorpion is venomous 
Keep your shoes on and torches to the floor while walking at night so that you don’t bump into this guy.
Thanks Jennifer for the picture.

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.
