  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
