  • Our Adopted Rhino Don and Edyta his Polish Keeper: Part 2

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    We recently shared part one of an interview with Edyta Wozna, who is one of the caregivers of Don English, Rhino Africa’s adopted orphaned rhino. Don's mother was killed by poachers in South Africa’s Kruger National Park in July 2015. In the interview, Edyta sheds light on the process of an orphan rhino arriving from the wild into the Care for Wild sanctuary and shared some of what happened in the days and weeks following Don’s arrival at the sanctuary. In part two of the interview series, we wanted to get to know Don a little better: Given the circumstances behind the death of Don’s mother, is Don friendly to humans? It's so important to set out here that it is not our goal to get an orphaned rhino to be friendly to humans. Eventually all of our orphans at Care for Wild will be released onto a fully monitored, high security tract of land, so that they will be able to live a wild life. However, as the team, we need to be able to interact with the rhino so that we can feed and rehabilitate it. We don’t know if Don saw his mother being killed, but he was definitely wary of us at the beginning. But, as soon as he saw Warren, another one of our young orphaned rhinos, interacting with us, he immediately became more relaxed. The fact that Warren was not anxious made Don feel at ease. Does Don get on well with his “room-mates” Warren and Oz? Oh yes. You must know that he is the smallest, but he has the biggest attitude. He has never been scared and from the beginning he made it known that he would not be pushed around. The three of them are best mates – each with a very distinct personality. Tell us more about Don’s personality. I would say cheeky, clever and very loving … oh and he loves his bottle. At feeding time he is the first to arrive. He loves to cuddle. If you rub Don’s tummy he will immediately lie down, encouraging you to scratch for as long as you can. Although he is shorter than the other two, Don is quite stocky I would say, and his is the hairiest, which adds to his cuteness. He’s definitely the “baby”, so Warren and Oz teach him. For example, he was too lazy to start eating grass, but when he saw Oz doing it, he decided to try. Lastly, he loves his mud bath, but what rhino doesn’t! Can you describe Don’s typical daily routine? Yes, his first feed is in the early morning, just as the sun is coming up. He gets one and a half litres of milk and one liter of a medicinal mixture that soothes any problems in the gut. In total, he has six bottle feeds per day and he is now eating approximately one kilogram of solid food per day in the form of grasses. We also add dung from the other rhinos in the sanctuary into Don’s boma. It’s important for Don, Warren and Oz to eat this dung as it contains natural bacteria that is good for the gut. We spend time stimulating all three rhinos, often by playing with them, but they are definitely getting to the stage where they are keeping themselves busy. Depending on how hot it is, the rhinos get one or two mud baths every day. Edyta, what’s the hardest part of your job? When an orphan rhino arrives at the sanctuary and you put everything you have into trying to get that individual through the first few days and then it doesn’t make it. There’s nothing as hard as that. But the reality is that you learn from it and hopefully you’ll have more experience for the next arrival. For regular updates you can also follow Don’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. Are you interested in adopting an orphaned rhino? There are ten more rhinos at the Care for Wild sanctuary that need your help – they are looking to be adopted. The cost is $1100 per month, covering all maintenance costs relating to food, shelter and medication as well as state-of-the-art security. For more information, contact us here.

  • 5 Remarkable Animals of Botswana's Epic Wilderness

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    Blessed with some of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth, Botswana is one of Africa’s greatest treasures. From the Okavango Delta to the Kalahari Desert, Botswana is a wildlife wonderland that is both immense and beguiling. It is in these iconic landscapes that the ruthless nature of the animal kingdom is truly revealed, as well as its beauty. These five classic animals of Botswana are examples of just that. The Buffalo-Hunting Lions of Duba Plains On a marshy island in the Okavango Delta, a pride of lions live in close contact with a herd of Cape buffalo. This unique habitat has led the lions to adapt their hunting skills, and the buffalo have become their primary source of prey. Instead of hunting at night, or at least in the cool hours of dawn and dusk, these lions hunt in the middle of the day. The nine lionesses of the Tsaro pride rarely let the herd out of their sight and attack their adopted prey with little of the usual stealth or caution. When hunting, they run directly at their prey. Each month the lions kill about 22 members of the resilient herd that numbers more than a thousand. The buffalo are not easy to take down, though and have learned to fight back against the lions as a unit. The buffalo are capable of fleeing the island, and do so during the dry season, but they always come back and their ongoing epic battle with the lion pride wages on.   The Wild Dogs of Northern Botswana The extensive region of Linyanti, Savuti, Kwando and Selinda in northern Botswana holds one of the most significant populations of wild dog on the continent and has offered excellent sightings for many years. Witnessing the social dynamics and interactions of a pack of wild dogs is one of Africa's most arresting scenes. It is a true delight to have an inside glimpse into their pack dynamics and see them at play. Anywhere in northern Botswana is a solid bet for a wild dog sighting and some of the areas have a reputation as a place to see wild dog dens. Sometime in the dry winter months of May to July, the pack’s alpha female settles into an abandoned porcupine burrow and gives birth to up to ten pups. Fed and looked after by the whole pack, the puppies are adorable and often emerge from underground, yawning and blinking in the sunlight as the day warms up. Meerkats of Makgadikgadi The Makgadikgadi Pans are the remains of an ancient super lake that's believed to have covered a vast percentage of Southern Africa. The pans crisscross their way across the barren wilderness. In the dry season, the pans are an empty, almost apocalyptic collection of cracked mud, but in the wet season they become an oasis and a haven for wildlife as animals flock to the watering holes. One of the great attractions here is waking up with the meerkats. Visitors are up at dawn to witness the meerkats scurry out of their burrows in the harsh morning light. They trickle out and climb onto sandy mounds and face the sun in an effort to warm up, and before long visitors are rewarded with their entertaining antics as the whole clan goes about their morning business. Some forage for insects, some bask in the morning sun and the younger ones tumble around and play with each other. The meerkats are adorable and the best part of the experience is when they have adjusted to your presence and start to climb on you for the best lookout point. The Elephant-Eating Lions of Savuti Savuti is a remote area of the Chobe National Park and is spectacular in the dry season. There are massive herds of buffalo that number up to 2,000, and large numbers of elephants and lions. The large elephant bulls that frequent the Savuti Marsh are aware but seemingly unafraid of the lions, but younger elephants have more reason to be concerned. It is during this dry season that the animals grow desperate. Waterholes become crowded and dangerous places. It is these conditions which led the lions to develop unique hunting habits – preying on the smaller elephants. Sometimes the entire pride is needed to bring the elephant down and they then start eating it while it’s still alive. One elephant will feed an entire pride for a week. This phenomenon is unique to the prides of the Chobe’s Savuti area, normally occurring late in the dry season. The Leopard Triangle Leopards are the most elusive of the Big Five, but Botswana offers some excellent areas to find these magnificent cats. There are three prime areas in Botswana to encounter leopards; Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta and Savuti Game Reserve. Leopard sightings can never be guaranteed. Their whereabouts have a lot to do with the water levels of the Delta as they need dry areas to hunt. As the water level rises or drops, they will move accordingly. Sometimes they can be found in the Delta and at other times you are far more likely to see leopards on its fringes. It's often in the shallow lagoons and grassy floodplains of the Delta's outskirts in the tall forest and thick bush that these special animals can be found. Antelope, birds, monkeys and rodents flourish here - as do the leopards. Further north, far from the Delta, in Savuti Game Reserve, leopards are often found and can be an equally fruitful base from which to search for these great cats.  

  • Two Months After Cecil the Lion's Death - What Has Changed?

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    The tragic death of Cecil the Lion in July generated an unprecedented global conversation about conservation and trophy hunting in Africa. Ricky Gervais tweeted about it, Jimmy Kimmel cried about it and social media users all over the world raged at the inhumane act. As sad as Cecil’s passing was, there have been some positive consequences. Delta, United and American Airlines banned the shipment of big-game trophies on flights and joined Etihad, Emirates, Virgin and many other airlines with the same policy. Donations poured in for Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Unit (WildCRU) who were the team who installed Cecil’s tracking collar. Possibly the biggest positive was that the world’s attention turned to Africa’s hunting industry. The closer that the trophy hunting industry is scrutinised on a world-scale the better. WildCRU’s director, Prof David Macdonald, said the team would devote themselves to working for the conservation of lions following the incredible generosity. “I believe that the worldwide engagement with Cecil’s story transcends the tragic fate of one lion, and sends a signal that people care about conservation and want it to be reflected in how humanity lives alongside nature in the 21st century. We feel inspired by this support and will work tirelessly to deliver the science and understanding that will enable wildlife and people to co-exist for the wellbeing of both.” Thousands of people from all over the world joined in on the conversation, but it was none other than Jane Goodall who made one of the most impassioned statements. “And the question we should ask ourselves is this: just because he was named, and loved and part of a scientific study, does that make him any different, in the world of the lion, than the other lions killed by ‘sport’ hunters? All those splendid individuals whose decapitated heads disfigure the walls of countless wealthy homes? “I simply cannot put myself into the mind of a person who pays thousands of dollars to go and kill beautiful animals simply to boast, to show off their skill or their courage. Especially as it often involves no skill or courage whatsoever, when the prey is shot with a high-powered rifle from a safe distance. How can anyone with an ounce of compassion be proud of killing these magnificent creatures?” In this post, we look at the ramifications of Cecil’s death. How has this affected the hunting industry? What has happened to those involved in the hunt? And also, what has happened to Cecil’s pride? To get up to speed, here is a timeline of the past two months since Cecil's death. So, where does that leave us now? HUNTING IN AFRICA Over the past few years, there has been a series of social media attacks on big game hunters but never has there been bigger outrage than the outcry from Cecil’s death. Initially, the outrage seemed to cause a positive change. Zimbabwe put out a moratorium on big game hunting, only to lift it ten days later. While three major airlines in the US announced they would ban the transport of any big game trophies there are still many options available for the “trophies” to be transported via UPS and FEDEX. UPS will continue to ship hunting trophies, so long as it's legal, saying: "We avoid making judgments on the appropriateness of the contents." With the recent release of the documentary Blood Lions, the canned lion hunting industry, which sees 2 lions killed a day in Southern Africa, has never been under more pressure. Hopefully, this new awareness will cause the industry to change its inhumane ways. Although, with such a lucrative industry at stake, it would be surprising to see widespread or rapid changes. THE HUNTERS Walter Palmer - Zimbabwe called for the extradition of the Minnesotan dentist, Walter Palmer, although this is highly unlikely. His dental practice recently re-opened after being forced to shut down following the protests and incredible public backlash the practice received. He continues to be in hiding. Theo Bronkhurst - the Zimbabwean hunter who took Palmer on the hunt has been charged in Victoria Falls for not having the required hunting permit. The case is adjourned until 28 September when Bronkhorst's barrister is next available. Honest Ndlovu - Zimbabwe has charged a man, Honest Ndlovu, for allowing an illegal hunt on his land. Ndlovu allowed Palmer to hunt and kill Cecil with a bow and arrow without a quota for a lion hunt on his farm, which is separated from the park by a railway track, prosecutors stated. Ndlovu is free on $200 bail and the case has been postponed to September 18. The charge carries a one-year jail term or a $400 fine. CECIL'S PRIDE When news of Cecil’s death broke a feature of the narrative was the impact his death would have on his pride. His cubs would apparently be killed by the new incoming dominant males and the death of Cecil would result in the death of a further 10 lions. It is known as the perturbation effect, the cascading effects on the surviving lions from the death of one of them. In brief, scientists have found that when a male lion is killed, because of the way their society works, a likely consequence is the overthrow and death of other adult male members of his weakened coalition (normally of brothers), and the subsequent infanticide of his cubs by the incoming new coalition of males. Luckily for Cecil’s pride, this has not been the case thus far. We’re happy to tell you that according to sources in Hwange National Park, who are monitoring the pride, that all of the cubs are alive and healthy. African Bush Camps recently released heart-warming footage of Cecil’s pride showing them exploring the park, and hopefully they will be doing just that for years to come. So where does this leave us now? The publicity from Cecil's death led to unprecedented donations for WidlCRU, which will go a long way to help them continue their research in Zimbabwe. Three US airlines changed their policies, but it's still possible and relatively easy to get the trophies shipped back home. Legally, nothing of note has changed and foreigners can still traipse onto our African shores and decimate our wildlife for a nominal fee which only spurs on the brutal captive breeding of lions and other animals. We can only hope that through the general outrage and wide backlash from Cecil's death that maybe, just maybe, those men and women who were thinking of coming here to shoot a lion or an equally incredible wild animal have reconsidered their plans. Hopefully, those who care have  sent a message to the world - that it is not acceptable to shoot a wild animal simply to boast or for the 'sport of it'. Trophy hunting needs to end, the sooner it does so the better.

  • The Top 5 Things To Do in Uganda

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    Bananas, Rolexes, boda-bodas and Michelle Pfeiffers. These are some of the things that await visitors to Uganda’s capital, Kampala. Bananas are everywhere you go in Uganda. Everywhere. Often you will see them stacked up impossibly high on top of the equally ubiquitous motorcycle taxis called boda-bodas. Everything and anything is carried by the boda-bodas. Fruit, livestock, bricks, furniture, people - all are piled on. Five people on one boda-boda is a Michelle Pfeiffer. A Rolex is Uganda’s version of a breakfast burrito. It is a rolled up chapati with scrambled eggs in it. That’s where the name “Rolex” comes from, rolled eggs. These quirky idiosyncrasies are a small part of what make Kampala such a vibrant African city and a traveler’s favourite. It is outside of the city, however, in Uganda’s national parks and reserves that travelers are most likely to be charmed. As Lonely Planet explains, “Emerging from the shadows of its dark history, a new dawn of tourism has risen in Uganda, polishing a glint back into the ‘pearl of Africa’. Travellers are streaming in to explore what is basically the best of everything the continent has to offer." For a relatively small country, there’s a lot that’s big about the place. Uganda is home to the Rwenzoris, the tallest mountain range in Africa, which is the source that feeds the Nile, the world’s longest river and Lake Victoria, the continent’s largest lake. Uganda is also one of the best places in the world to see gorillas and chimpanzees and also has a range of Big 5 game parks with abundant wildlife. Uganda is a thriving destination with a range of diverse offerings for the more adventurous traveller. These are our top five things to see in Uganda; 1. Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a national park that is home to almost one-half of the world’s population of the endangered mountain gorilla, making it an extremely valuable conservation site and one of Uganda’s chief tourist attractions. It is situated in the south west of Uganda on the edge of the Great Rift Valley and is considered the most diverse forest in Uganda. Encompassing an ancient and vast stretch of lush rainforest, it is one of the few large expanses of forest in East Africa where lowland and mountain habitats meet. 2. Chimpanzee Tracking in Kibale National Park Kibale is one of the best places in the world to go chimpanzee tracking with about 500 of these primates spread around the park. The chimpanzee tracking tours leave twice a day with an expert guide who will lead you on a trek through the verdant rainforest. The Kibale forest is rich in wildlife and is most noted for its primate population. Other than chimpanzees, Kibale has populations of red-tailed monkey, diademed monkey, olive baboon, and black and white colobus. 3. Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda is not just about gorillas and chimpanzees. You can also enjoy a traditional East African safari in one of the game parks dotted around the country. The Queen Elizabeth National Park is considered the best option as it contains a wide variety of wildlife and is easily accessible in the western corner of Uganda. The park is famous for its tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area. Queen Elizabeth National Park is located at the base of the Rwenzori Mountains and the views from some of the camps are simply spectacular. The park boasts an array of wildlife such as lion, leopard, elephant, antelope including the native Ugandan kob and the park is home to over 600 bird species which makes up a quarter of Africa's total birdlife. 4. The Mountains of the Moon In ancient times, it was reported that the much-debated source of the Nile was a group of massive mountains in East Africa. It was said that the Nile flowed from the mountains into a series of large lakes. The natives called this range the Mountains of the Moon because of their snow-capped whiteness. These mountains turned out to be the Rwenzoris, which means “maker of rain” in local dialects, which are a dramatic range just to the northwest of Lake Victoria. Their highest peak is Mount Stanley, Africa’s third highest mountain at 5,109m. These mountains experience regular and significant snowfall and hold several significant glaciers. Today these are among the most endangered glacial formations on the planet. These impressive mountains can be admired from afar or, for the more adventurous, can be traversed with challenging multi-day hikes. In the foothills of the range lie the crater lakes, also called explosion craters, which are extinct volcanoes. These picturesque crater lakes (some over 400m deep), are ringed with improbably steep hills. It’s a great spot to settle in for a few days to explore the footpaths or cycle the seldom-used roads. 5. Murchison Falls Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda's largest and the location of the famous waterfall of the same name. The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which first races down 80km of white-water rapids before squeezing through a narrow gorge, only seven metres wide, to create a spectacular waterfall that plunges 43 metres below. The Murchison Falls, the park's greatest draw card, drains the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, slow river that flows quietly across the rift valley floor for 55km to Lake Albert. The river’s banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda kobs, chimpanzees, and many bird species.      

  • Riding in Cars with Lions

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    I’m a little infatuated with lions right now. I could sit with them for hours. And by sit with them I obviously mean in a vehicle beside them. Because I’m not the bravest soul, just one wholly fascinated with these fierce creatures and at the same time terrified beyond the point of being able to keep my camera cocked. Several times on our last safari at Zarafa Camp in the Selinda, Botswana, a metre from two males, the blood, the breath, all the feeling in my body dropped through me like a lift falling several floors to a crashing halt at the bottom. I could not move. I blame our ranger but obviously that’s not fair. I didn’t see the lion flinch, I didn’t see him flicking his tail while his eyes locked onto me. I didn’t realise I shouldn’t move too quickly in the vehicle – I thought lions saw us as one whole and that as long as I stayed within closed doors he wouldn’t pounce. But the look of terror in my ranger’s eyes said otherwise. "Tam, just keep still. Don’t move." The lion’s tail continued flicking. I dared not turn my head to meet his gaze. I dared not capture this on camera – when this is exactly the moment wildlife photographers should be ready to shoot in spite of any internal fear, any external threat. The gaze of a lion when he’s not happy with you – even when you only see it through the eyes of your ranger – separates the brave from the weak. I didn’t do a great job at proving my bravery but maybe I needed that – maybe I needed a reminder of my own fragility. When Naude, still filming away in the seat in front of me, said, "Tam, it’s ok. You can move now. Just do it veeeerrry slowly," I thought to myself, "It’s okay. I’ll just wait until you’re done. I don’t need to see this. You just finish and then let’s drive off slowly, very slowly, to safety." But I turned my head, subtly, to look at my male lion and when our eyes locked I felt as light as a sprinkling of talcum powder, light with terror, my skin tingling so intensely it felt as though it could burst into flames at the smallest breath of wind. But then the lion turned away, his tail immobile, and flopped down onto the earth, bored with us. Ready for nap time. When we met with two females later, I was slightly braver, shimmying slowly around the vehicle to get the best position for photographs. Zarafa provides guests with a Canon 5D Mark II and 100-400mm lens to use. It isn’t light. I rested the lens on my knees to steady the shot as one female climbed a fallen tree about three metres before us. When it truly sinks in just how real and wild tracking lions in the bush is, you approach the moment with a respect and humility that reminds you to put down the camera from time to time to experience it all through your own eyes, not through the lens, not through the ranger. I realised how alone I was too, how alone I am. If the lion decided to have a go at me – which he wouldn’t, my ranger says, he’d only charge the vehicle, which sounds scary enough to me – there’s nothing anyone else can do. It’s just him and me. Lion and man. Or rather woman… You’re forced out of that protective bubble we all dreamwalk through the city in. And nothing shakes you right to the bone as much as that moment. Looking back at the photos I did manage to take, my heart returns to that moment of fear and thrill, gripped like a mouse between a lion’s paws. It's a feeling a lot like falling in love. And on that note... In next week's story, meet the lion cub we fell in love with...

  • The Mindful Approach to Saving Rhinos | World Rhino Day 2014

    By Tamlin Wightman |

    There is a movement quickly gaining momentum at present. While rooted in the East, in Buddhist philosophy, it is rearing its head (or mind) more and more in the West - in our yoga studios, offices, high schools, prisons... Its name is Mindfulness. The creation of a mindful society can only be a good thing - imagine a world run on compassion rather than competition. Consideration of others and awareness are central. A greater awareness of not only our thoughts, actions and values, but of our interconnectedness as humans with the rest of the planet. On World Rhino Day, this movement is especially significant - serving as a reminder that Homo sapiens are not separate from the other life forms we share earth with. This World Rhino Day, Wildlife ACT are focusing on the importance of instilling a love of wildlife and nature in our youth and in increasing their awareness of the state of our rhinos. This year the world will hear the voices of the youth as they speak out against rhino poaching at the World Youth Rhino Summit, held at KwaZulu Natal's iMfolozi Game Reserve, from 21-23 September 2014. Wildlife ACT is a non-profit group of on-the-ground conservationists, dedicated to saving Africa's endangered and threatened species from extinction. We have been supporting them for many years and were happy to have been able to commit half a million rand towards the Wildlife ACT Fund this year alone, to help sponsor collars, tracking equipment, vehicles and field staff salaries. We met up with Christie Morgan and Dr Simon Morgan from Wildlife ACT to find out more about what they have been up to regarding all things rhinos. Take a look at our infographic [open in new window to view full screen] and read our special Simon Says below.

    "We can fight this" Simon Says

    A message from Dr Simon Morgan, Wildlife ACT

    "It is hard working in the conservation world and really being able to see a positive light at the end of the dark, gloomy and, for many of the people working on the front lines, treacherous tunnel. There seem to be so many dark stories, what with poachers being found with grenades to booby trap rhino carcasses and young rhino calves found with machete wounds, it is hard sometimes to think of rational and reasonable ways forward. This is why the public are forever baying for blood and wanting poachers strung out to dry. However that is not where our real problems lie. There will always be poor people who can be coerced and bribed with large sums of money to do dreadful things, but what is the driving force behind this? Who are the entities willing to pay the money for this bribery, corruption and death? People are quick to jump at it and point fingers at the end-users - and bay for their blood or sanctions against their countries. But have we stopped to understand who is using rhino horn and ivory products and whether they have an inkling of what is happening here in Africa? Do they know that in Africa rhino are being tranquilised and having their horns cut off and left to bleed to death or that more than 80 poachers were shot and killed in the Kruger park alone since the beginning of 2013... I don’t think so.  I think the only ones who have the full picture is a small group of greedy, powerful, rich middle-men who are orchestrating this whole thing. They are feeding lies to both ends of the scale - poor poachers with the allure of money and end-users with the allure of status and well-being. Keeping them both in the dark about how much they are benefiting from this immensely profitable and relatively risk-free supply-chain they have created. They feed the demand with false-information and clever word-of-mouth marketing skills, backed by influential people with money and power. We can fight this. We need to show people from the poor, rural poaching communities the greater truth about the number of their family members which have been killed or jailed and how they are being coerced into supporting and making powerful a small group of middle-men with theirs and their families lives. We need to redevelop that emotional connection and revere that the people from Africa had for their wildlife. We need to show people who are using rhino horn as a status symbol or ivory trinkets as business gifts the truth behind where these products come from - that not only animals, but people are being slaughtered weekly for these products. That the status they are wanting to achieve is currently at risk in the rest of the worlds eyes and potentially to their peers when they discover the truth. We need to let these people know that they have an amazing opportunity and the power to turn the tide on one of the most appalling scenes occurring throughout Africa, elevating their own status to ones of protectors and saviours. We need to let them know that they are being swindled into thinking that these animal products which they so valuably prize are worth even a fraction of the amount they are paying for them and that a small, few, greedy group are gaining from this profiteering and making a fool out of them. Perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but I think we need to make sure that we are shining that light on the right group of people. We have to show people on both ends of the scale the truth and show them the bigger picture. They need the information so that they can start making informed decisions and realise the consequence of their actions and how they could flip the switch and gain from this opportunity - we just need to present it to them."
