Limpopo Adventure – Adrenalin Junkie Activities in Limpopo

Think Limpopo and it brings to mind images of Africa's true nature - that part of the country that is practically out of reach of civilisation, and largely unchanged by man and his needs. Limpopo is the land of baobabs, seething hot days, the mountains of the Waterberg, the Soutpansberg, and bushveld plains peppered with thorn trees. It is where one comes to view game in its rightful place, where animals can once again reign supreme. This is the great north. Large areas of conservation differentiate the Limpopo from most other provinces, where adrenalin seekers find a realm of untouched nat...

Waterbuck Twins – Photograph

This photograph of the Water Buck twins was sent to us by Madelein Calligeris. Madelein took this gorgeous shot in the Big 5, Karongwe Game Reserve near Hoedspruit in Limpopo. According to the Wikipedia entry, Waterbuck stand 100 to 130 cm at the shoulder and weigh from 160 to 240  kg ...

Oxpecker Research Facility unveiled at Mokopane

Oxpecker Research Facility unveiled at Mokopane: The National Zoological Gardens of South Africa’s Mokopane Centre unveiled its custom-designed oxpecker facility on Friday 18th July 2008. This facility is for the research of Red-billed Oxpeckers with the aim of breeding and relocating these endangered birds to areas throughout South Africa. In the 1900’s oxpecker numbers were drastically reduced as a result of the use of dips to treat livestock against tick infestations. As a result, many oxpeckers, whose main source of food is ticks, were killed by the poison. Since that time, awareness ha...

Stately “Lehututu” may not be around for much longer

Bela Bela - The stately Southern Ground Hornbill or "Lehututu" as it is locally called, may not be around for much longer. These huge black birds with their distinctive beaks and bright red wattles are part of the hornbill family that occurs naturally only in Africa and Asia. However, hornbill numbers are declining due to loss of habitat. "Many species will not survive without human intervention," says chief executive officer of the Limpopo Tourism and Parks Board, Benny Boshielo. "For any successful conservation effort, the active involvement of provincial authorities, conservation agencie...
