March 2016 Ranger's Letter
We are all on our knees, just like the adorable elephant on the left, saying thank you for the bit of rain we received around the month of January. The major dams are still relatively empty and the food is in short supply for the animals still, but we are very, very grateful for the rain we have received!
Sue & Gordon's Notebook March 2016
The last three months (December 2015 to February 2016) have seen a boom in the animal and bird populations in Madikwe, as being Summer time and in theory the height of our rainy season, this is when most of the herbivores produce their offspring. It is a great time of the year with so much new life around - playing and cavorting, adding many great photo opportunities out on game drive.
