  • SOUND ON!!!! 

A Male Lion walking and calling as makes his rounds on the farm. 
The Lion dynamics at the moment are still a bit all over the place now but there has been some cubs born in the reserve below us so there has definitely been Males hanging around and mating with the resident pride. 

Thanks Alan for the video.

  • A series of photos of An African Fish Eagle, one of the most iconic calls in the African bush. 

This series of photos was taken as the Fish Eagle came down from its perch to catch something at Warthog Dam. 

Thanks Bryan for the photos.

  • Civet coming around the house yesterday. 
Usually they come around sometime during the night, as they are generally nocturnal, but this individual wanted to get out early to look what it can get. 
Civets are omnivorous and will eat anything they can catch. 
This individual was seen catching something which looked like a Hornbill in the grass and then took it away from the house to eat it. 

Thanks Paul for the video.

  • What a sighting!!!!!

Shareholders were treated to a rare sighting when a Leopard took down an Impala. It dragged the kill into a nearby drainage line.

Will be very interesting to see the activity around the area in the next few days with regards to Hyena or Lion coming in to see if they can get some scraps.

Thanks Anne Beech for the great video and photo.

  • Who says Lions can’t climb trees....?

These Lions chased a Leopard off a kill and then tried climbing the tree to get the Impala kill which the Leopard thought was safely stashed in the tree.

Thanks Craig for the video.

  • A beautiful Snouted Cobra seen on the farm. 

The colours of this snake are something special. This snake hunts actively during the day looking for prey species such as rodents, birds and other snakes.

It is classified as very dangerous with its mixture of neurotoxic and cytotoxic venom but bites are rare as this snake is not aggressive.

Thanks Francios for the video.

  • Great having a Buffalo Herd on the property again. It’s great being able to follow these animals through the bush as you listen how they move through the trees and bushes. 
Hopefully there will be Lions to follow.

Thanks Maria and Heidel for the content.

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.
