  • 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.

  • A male Lion who has been absolutely battered and bruised in a fight. His eye is injured and limping badly. 
There were 2 different prides of Lion on the same area last night so wonder if that had something to do with it.
Thanks Traci for the photo.

  • Wild Dogs!!!!
We haven’t had dogs on the farm for a while so great seeing them.
Dogs are very exciting to watch but super quick, you have to keep moving to stay with them.
Thanks Tim for the video.

  • Interesting sighting where a Leopard was very interested in something in the grass. The Leopard was hissing and jumping around.
After some investigation of the area there was an African Rock Python in the grass which was why the Leopard was so interested in what was in the grass.

Thanks Catherine Thompson.

  • A shareholder did some exploring around their house and found some interesting things.
Firstly a Brown House Snake, harmless to humans. This snake is found around residential areas where it wats rodents and lizards, interestingly this snake constricts its prey and then eats it. 
Next is a Parabuthus transvaalicus, found in the summer months in the lowveld. This is a highly venomous scorpion and with its neurotoxic venom it causes immense pain and attacks the nerves of the body. In severe cases it can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems.
Mostly it comes down to pain management. 
Mostly found in the evenings roaming around actively hunting for prey.

Thanks @matts_explorography for the photos.
