I LOVE! where I live!

Post by Shisa on Mon Apr 21, 2014 11:56 am

First topic message reminder :

I live behind a Game Lodge and most mornings I drive through part of it on my way to work and if it's been raining hard I drive around it as part of the road runs alongside a stream bank and gets a bit quagmire-ish.
Most mornings before breakfast and my second cup of coffee I get to see: Lions, eland, giraffe, oryx, zebra, springbuck, elephant, if I'm very lucky rhino and buffalo( their camp is a bit far from the roads).
This morning I found a Cheetah! I almost hit it as it was crouching next to the road on a sharp turn. We both got a fright!

I took these with my phone so appologise for quality:





This one we took yesterday. There are 3 females and a male.



The lions are in their own camp as they'd kill the cheetah and any other small carnivores.
On my farm I have Black Back Jackal (they're a bit of a pest), Bat Eared Fox and Bush Pig.

It's really interesting. There was a programme on a couple of weeks ago about trying to set up a new lion pride in a game reserve in Kenya. It really highlighted the need for fencing and rangers to protect the animals from poachers.

Poaching is becoming a huge global problem.
