safariLIVE ends October 31st – we need your help to avoid this

As Graham has just shared, we have come to a point where we cannot keep the safariLIVE broadcasts going any longer. We have, therefore, had to make the painful decision to retrench most of our staff, including our guides, camera operators, directors, tech support and others in Djuma, Illovo and Cape Town. This is not [...]

Djuma is building a new pan next to Gowrie dam

As the current pan next to Gowrie dam is using a lot of precious water to keep filled, Djuma has decided to build a new permanent pan next to it. Once the new pan is in place, the current one will no longer be pumped and thus become seasonal, just as the main dam and [...]

Character Feature: Djuma Clan

Scooby Doo – Where Are You?

Looking at the monitor, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was just a dirt smudge on the screen. His puffy body and little toothpick legs, not occupying much more than a few pixels at a time. Over the last week, however, this pixel puff has scuttled his way across our monitors, through the dust [...]
