With an adventurously remodeled observation truck from Drifters, we have spent the last few weeks scouring the South African bush, watching the wildlife in the reserves and, of course, visiting the Kruger Park. There were breathtaking moments and stunning camera shots. The first stop was the Balule Nature Reserve near Maruleng in Limpopo province. In the language of the Shangaan people, the name ‘Balule' is the Tsonga word for Buffalo. We stayed at the Greenfire Lodge "Andy's Camp". A few small tent huts on a hill with an perfect view to a water hole. Of course, a watering hole attracts a lot of animals, but the safari in the wild was really interesting. You can see the so-called "Big Five" in the Balule Nature Reserve. The Big Five are lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. Ranger Jika Tibana tells us in an interview about the work in the park, the difficulties in protecting the animals and the precautions for a safari.
