When no change is good news!

In the last few weeks we have seen wildlife behaving very differently around cities. Kangaroos in the streets of towns, bears strolling down main streets and large wild cats prowling trough people’s back yards.

Quite a few people have asked me if the animals’ behavior on Thanda Safari has changed since the national-wide Covid-19 lock down began. Before 24 March our wildlife often encountered multiple game viewing vehicles in one day. Especially Lion, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo were the most viewed species.

From my observation during my daily drives over the last month there has been no change at all. And that is excellent news.

It means that the game drive operations of our guides and trackers have always focused on minimum disturbance of the animals during drive. Even the general game, which are usually ‘flight species’ (Giraffes, Zebras, Warthogs, Impalas, …) show no difference in behavior.

Thanda Safari is an ecosystem where animals come first!

PS: This is a short slide show to enjoy this ecosystem!
