  • We warmly welcome David, Justine & family to Jejane. David and Justine’s wealth of experience and knowledge bring a new chapter to the farm. 
Looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership - exciting times ahead. #jejaneprivatenaturereserve #big5 #greaterkruger #bush #gamedrives #africanbush #gamereserve #nature #wildlife #hoedspruit #bushlife #privategamereserve #gameviewing #lowveld [Instagram]
  • Very active elephant dung.

There are 4 different groups of dung beetles: telecoprid, endocoprid, paracoprid and kleptocoprid. 
Paracoprids dig below the dung pile, endocoprids lay their eggs in the dung pile, telecoprids make the dung ball and roll it away and kleptocoprids steal the dung balls.

Dung beetles play a very important part in the ecosystem and are very fascinating to watch.

Thanks Michelle for the video.

  • Great having a Lioness walking right in front of your game viewer. 

There are Lions all over the place at the moment. We have seen adult males, adult females and cubs so there has been a lot of activity and there might be a pride establishing themselves on the farm. 

Thanks for the video M.

  • A Giraffe was found dead of unknown causes but after a few days the predators started finding the Giraffe and eating it. 

Sometimes when animals die of something unnatural then predators don’t touch the animal but in this case there were predators which means good sightings. There have been plenty of vultures around as well which is great.

Thanks Michelle for the photo.

  • Lions mating on the farm this morning. 

There has already been 5 cubs seen on the farm recently so maybe there are more to come soon with a different female. 

Thanks Alan Blem for the photo.

  • First good rains of the season. Some much needed relief for the bush and hopefully all those bright green sprouts and leaves will start appearing now.

Thanks Colin for the video.

  • Some very interesting behavior which is not seen so often by Hornbills. 

Their diet includes small mammals but it is not seen often. 
Here a Yellow-Billed Hornbill has a small mouse in its mouth and trying to swallow it.

Thanks Andrew for the interesting photo.

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.

Outreach
