In August this year we welcomed the Verdier Family for a private African Vet Safari with their French guide Dr Hubert Planton and also hosted a KZN Rhino & Ellie African Vet Safari. Guests had a great time enjoying game drives, boat cruises, game viewing, sundowners, tracking rhinos and much more. There were amazing sightings: lions climbing trees, multiple elephants 50m away bathing in a river bed, rhino and buffalo, some beautiful bird species, antelope, zebra, mongoose and plenty more…
The highlight of course was darting and working with the endangered black rhino and elephant. Some of the rhino were sadly dehorned to help combat the imminent poaching threat to the reserve. They were also collared to allow anti-poaching units to monitor them more effectively. The elephants had their expired tracking collars replaced to allow the resident researchers to effectively monitor them as part of ongoing population management research on the reserve.
All the procedures went well and the patients all recovered without incident. As always guest participation provided funding for these essential conservation procedures – thank you!
In October we welcomed Dave Long and a group of his software developers from Embrace to enjoy an African Vet Safari in the Eastern Cape – Embrace every moment! Their Vet Safari was short, but busy: talks on vet science and wildlife, a game drive and a morning darting session moving three buffalo! The group had a great time based on their positive feedback.
Thank you for your support Dave Long & Embrace Software!
