December brought on the rain, the park is looking so green again and the Wildebeest have started giving birth (a little late this year). We have shared some great moments with our guests during the festive season. Here are some highlights we would like to share with you.
The African Elephant
Always great to share a sighting of these gentle giants while out on a game drive with guests. Elephants are very social animals and live in family groups where every member is of great importance. In the breeding herds the oldest female is the matriarch and makes all the dissensions within the herd. After carrying the calf for around 22 months the female will do anything to protect her calf from danger. If a threat is around the adults in the herd will often form a close group with the little ones in the middle.
