Lions now roam Free
Botlierskop Private Game Reserve has recently released lions into a 1000 hectare portion of land in the reserve. As soon as these lions were released they hunted and made their first kill, taking down a Blue Wildebeest.
These lions, which roam 1000 hectares of the 4200 hectare land do so freely. As a result of the controlled space of land that these animals inhabit, it is still safe to engage in outdoor activities such as horseback safaris among others.
Naturally, one would like to get a clear view of these lions on a game drive and although scarce, some of our guests were lucky enough to witness the first kill on an afternoon game drive. This happened barely a day after they had been released into the wild.
Elephant family enjoy Free roaming
All is well with our elephant family that is now free roaming for 5 months and are adapting very well to their environment. Another 2 male elephants joined them 2 months ago taking the number of elephants on the reserve to 5. They have a stunning sea view when they roam at the top of mountain.
