Today I had to go on a food shopping town trip and had no time for a game drive.

But I thought you might enjoy this short isiZulu lesson from my tracker Bheki which I recorded a while ago. Bheki and I have been working together for the last 7.5 years and he has been demonstrating the special clicking sounds of the Zulu language (c, x and q) many times to our Thanda Safari guests.

Today he is demonstrating them for you! Since the beginning of the South African National Lock Down Bheki is at home with his family. I miss the game drives with my favorite wing-man!

Have a good evening, stay home and stay safe!

Bheki’s Father …

Since 2012 I work together with my friend and tracker Bheki Ngubane. Today I visited his community to take pictures of many of his family members. This is a picture of the man I wanted to meet for a long time. He is Bheki’s father, 93 years old, the proud husband of eight wives and father of 65 children. More about him and his community will follow soon …
