Shortly after sunrise, at Kieliekrankie Wilderness Camp in South Africa, as I settled into my balcony chair with my rusk and a coffee, I noticed a lone hyena on the horizon.
It was a cool and rainy morning for a game drive. The weather and lush green landscape, combined with the curves in the road, made it difficult to spot wildlife until we were within close proximity.
Birds of a feather will flock together, especially when they are trying to escape the cold, winters of Western and Central Europe.
Hi my name is India and I am 18 years old, I live and study in the UK but my heart has always been in Africa. Being half South African and having the opportunity to go to Africa pretty much every year of my life has honestly made me who I am today.
It’s long been my belief that rhino poaching is a painful abstraction for most of us with an interest in African wildlife. We see the gruesome photographs of de-horned animals on the Internet and read the news clips about the most recent transgressions against these magnificent creatures, but then the cell phone rings or the bills arrive in the mailbox and we mentally shift gears to the next concern. All this is perfectly natural.
