For the short time we are here on this earth we feel it is of prime importance
to try and protect this small piece of Africa. We frequently patrol the area for
snares and do our utmost to protect the game. Our neighbours feel the same
so we have left fences open where possible to allow the game to roam freely
between our properties.
You may see Buffalo, Lesser Kudu, Impala, Eland, Waterbuck, Bushbuck,
Duiker, Dik-Dik, Warthog, Hyena, Ostrich, Giraffe and Leopard in the area.
We have spotted Wild Dogs, Aardvark, lion, cheetah and the occasional Wildebeest and Zebra.

The bird life in the area is superb.

“All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it yet - but
when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.”
Ernest Hemmingway
