          Wow, I did not realise I had left it so long since the last blog! Sorry if the details are a bit sketchy, trying to remember them for this long is rather difficult...should probably write my blog sooner next time. The first week's weather has been averaging about 16 degrees and with the wind and rain as well it has meant that we couldn't achieve a lot in terms of veterinary care. My tasks on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (15th-17th) consisted of a game count, several game ...

          Wow. After a delayed flight from Johannesburg I Finally arrived at port Elizabeth, and you know what? I now understand why they call it the Windy City. I haven't felt much of a breeze for the past six weeks, so going from the calm of phalaborwa to the wind of port Elizabeth was a bit of a shock! The weather for the past two days has not been far from that of England either. I have had to wear trousers for the first time along with a hoodie and a fleece over the top, and an ...

Today sat having a coffee while Ben tries to sort out the payment for the Cape Town to Nairobi trip and book a hire ...

          Its no secret how much I love cats, from my little Tabatha at home, to the big cats on the reserve. And we're so lucky that we get to see lions, cheetahs and a leopard during our time here at Shamwari Conservation Experience - and that's even before we get to Born Free.

          Our days at the Shamwari Conservation Experience continue with a mixture of early starts, hard graft, education and game drives. Tasks range from cleaning out the animals' waterholes, a messy, soggy job under the hot sun to clearing the bush back from the roads. The latter makes it easier for the rangers to get through and help them spot any animals close by so they don't run them over and also for the benefit of the guests at the 5* lodges on the reserve who are paying more ...
