Siyafunda's Wildlife Experiences
"Maybe it's animalness that will make the world right again: the wisdom of elephants, the enthusiasm of canines, the grace of snakes, the mildness of anteaters. Perhaps being human needs some diluting." ― Carol Emshwiller
At our main research camp we focus on the large keystone species that inhabit Greater Makalali Nature Reserve. Elephants, lion, hyena and buffalo. All data from our Endangered Species Camp, My Kaya lodge rangers and the other lodges with in the reserve are also added to our data bases and analysed at main camp.
We focus on the rarer species that roam Makalali Game Reserve, this often requires us to spend a lot more time on foot tracking these animals and recording tracks and signs. Here we focus on cheetah, ground-hornbill, rhino, leopard and wild-dogs (to be released July 2019).
Our back-packing walking patrol offers an unique wild-life experience while supporting our conservation efforts to protect our threatened animals that roam the Greater Makalali Nature Reserve.
