      As we headed out at 6:30 in the morning, the first thing we came across was a mom and baby white rhino. We watched for quite some time as they moved closer and closer to us. Then we were on the trail of some female lions. Our tracker could tell by the foot print pattern that they were on the hunt and were in fact the same pride from the night before ( the trackers/rangers are amazing- watching them is track the animals is fascinating) A note about the ...

They are relaxed, we are relaxed and we watch them for at least an hour. Johan was hoping that the lions would be doing some hunting, but they don’t look at all inclined to move. Johan tells us that he has been in contact with some of his guide friends because he doesn’t know these two particular lions. They ...

      ... the babies too :) when we got back I went around and had animal time so I hung out with the mongoose & meerkat, warthogs, coco pops and of course tipsy! I'm really going to miss him, he's just warmed up to me this last week! He would often come over to play with me! Then after muffin break I went on carnivore feed to feed the cheetahs, leopards, and lions again. Tons of fun and It was a different staff member so it was great hearing the stories through someone else. I then ...

      I am here volunteering with a great organization that gathers data on wildlife and vegetation in the Balule Nature Reserve. They also work on anti-poaching and rhino & elephant monitoring. I've walked the bush assisting; checking the damage elephants have done to trees & bushes, taken visibility indexes from watering holes, telemetry indexing with grasses near watering holes, monitored ...
