Highlights for January 2019

Every Game drive/Safari in the Pilanesberg is different, as field guides we drive through the gate and never know exactly what is going to happen. This all adds to the excitement as we head out on a game drive or Hot air balloon flight. 

The rains continue, everything is bright green and the bush is starting to get thick again. We have managed to share some great sightings with our guests this month. Including “the ghosts” of the Pilanesberg (Buffalo) and a hot air balloon flight over the king of the jungle.

Did you know?

Zebras always look fat and healthy due to the large quantities of grass that they eat. This is because they are hindgut fermenters and with all the digestion happening they are full of gas. This not only gives them their round stomachs but is also the cause of their flatulence.

Wild dogs live in packs that consist of an Alpha male and female who are the only pair in the pack to breed. The whole pack is responsible for the raising of the pups which increases their chances of survival.

An elephants trunk consists of thousands of muscles. It takes an elephant calf up to three months to start realizing how its’ trunk works.
