Elephants are renowned for their ability to follow a scent
and are the only creatures who are able to maintain this sense through water.
They are therefore often used in tracking - particularly
after poachers. Guests spending more than 3 nights at Camp Jabulani are able to
experience this extraordinary skill first hand. Guests on elephant back are
split into two groups. The first departs from the camp with guides on foot. The
second group depart a short while later. The elephants are given the scent of
one of the members of Group 1. They then begin to track that scent .... Somapane
is our very best! Test her skills first hand. This is a thrilling experience and
guaranteed to amaze.
Cheetah Research Center
has established itself as one of the leading private research and breeding
facilities for endangered species in the country.
Governed by a progressive and
modern management approach, it concerns itself with the breeding and maintenance
of several endangered indigenous wildlife species in Southern Africa.
places particular emphasis on the breeding and maintenance of cheetah in
captivity. The excellent condition of these animals and the premises on which
they are maintained, reflect the attention to detail, which is the hallmark of
witness feeding sessions of various rare African vultures as they swoop down
into the “vulture restaurant” to feed on the remains of carcasses. The centre’s
veterinary staff operate an animal hospital where injured or abandoned animals
from elsewhere are cared for and eventually released back into the wild. The
centre, a non-profit enterprise, is funded from gate takings and sales from the
curio shop and restaurant. Visitors to the centre have a number of options,
including tours of the centre and game drives on Kapama Private Game Reserve.
