  1. Hi Werner, can you identify the old single male walking accross the road? Looks in pretty poor condition, and so I was wondering if it the remaining Batia? Or has he gone now as well?

    Regards Bryan Mulligan

  2. Thanks guys!

    Brian, this is Ditaba. One of the two dominant males currently in charge in the north eastern section of the park. They’re almost 10 years old now, but still going strong. As far as we know the second Batia brother is also no longer with us. But at 17 years old that can be expected.

  3. Hi Werner! (na ‘n vrek lekker Kruger naweek)

    Ek het post-Madikwe depressie! Ek wil heeltyd net Amarula by my koffie gooi hier by die werk!! Toe loer ek maar rond hier op die website dat ek net nie so verlang nie! Dink dit gaan nou ‘n gereelde instelling word om na al die blogs te kyk. Kan nie wag dat jy die foto’s van ons famous kill op sit nie, as jy wel foto’s het… Anyway, weet dat jy vrek lucky is om nou daar te sit in die bos terwyl die res van ons agter rekenaars sit! Goed gaan en geniet dit!

  4. Hello Rika. Ha-ha, dis funny. Vat maar jou eie vles Amarula koffie van die huis af. Dan kan jy lekker sit en blog.:-) Ons het almal ook dit baie geniet om julle hier te he. Die "kill" sal nog geblog word, moenie bekommer nie. In die tussen tyd kan julle maar ‘n paar van julle foto’s ook blog. Ons wil baie graag ons gaste se foto’s ook op die blog sien. Hoop om julle somme gou weer te sien.

  5. Wildlife includes all non-domesticated plants, animals and other organisms. Domesticating wild plant and animal species for human benefit has occurred many times all over the planet, and has a major impact on the environment, both positive and negative.

    Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems. Deserts, rain forests, plains, and other areas?including the most developed urban sites?all have distinct forms of wildlife. While the term in popular culture usually refers to animals that are untouched by human factors, most scientists agree that wildlife around the world is impacted by human activities.

    Humans have historically tended to separate civilization from wildlife in a number of ways including the legal, social, and moral sense. This has been a reason for debate throughout recorded history. Religions have often declared certain animals to be sacred, and in modern times concern for the natural environment has provoked activists to protest the exploitation of wildlife for human benefit or entertainment. Literature has also made use of the traditional human separation from wildlife.
