Buffalo

Earlier this month we noticed a sizable silhouette break away from the tree-line as it plodded down to the seep. It seems a lone male buffalo has found solace and refuge close to Deteema Springs Camp and enjoys visiting us for his afternoon drink of water.

Age may have caught up with this “dagga boy” but underestimating the fight left within him could be fatal.

Elephant

We also noticed that elephant bulls have been visiting the seeps frequently whereas breeding herds have shown a preference for Deteema Dam.

Wishing you all the best,
