A Life Along the Water

They are big, chubby and prefer to spend the day having a bath. But they are also quick-tempered and aggressive, which is why they are one of the most dangerous mammals in Africa. Hippos are actually very territorial and defend their home from any intruder. Repeatedly hunted down by the ivory trade, and often suffering greatly due to human-animal conflict, the hippopotamus population is now considered endangered.

Tracking Mother Nature: Who was strolling along here?

Tracks in the ground, marks on trees, droppings on a rock – we are surrounded by signs that can be read by anyone who is willing to look at their surroundings. Some of these signs are easy to decipher, but others are difficult to interpret. But put them all together and you can learn the latest about our wildlife neighbours.

On A Bush Walk

There are two options for exploring the wonders of the African bush: If you decide to go on a game drive, you will be taken by your guide in one of the big, mostly open vehicles over the bumpy gravel roads. Or you can venture into the bush on foot to experience the wild life of the savannah at first hand.

Isn’t It Dazzling?!

What do you expect when you plan a trip to the savannah of Africa? A wonderful memory? Pride and cackles? Even a crash? Sounds odd, true, but in fact that’s exactly what you’ll see there…

An Owl in Daylight

The eerie hoo-hoo of an owl is one of the typical sounds of the night. But some owls are also active during the day. Like the Barred Owlet, which is found in the north-east of South Africa.

A Day out of the Kruger Park

Kruger National Park in South Africa is one of the most beautiful places on our planet. Numerous tourists travel from other regions, other countries, even other continents to spend just a few days there. But many of the local people who live only a few kilometres from the nearest entrance have never been there. Why is that?

A Day in the Kruger Park

It is the largest protected wildlife area in South Africa. It was established on 26 March 1898, at that time much smaller and under the name Sabie Game Reserve. Today, the Kruger National Park attracts 1.3 million visitors each year – for good reason.

The Scent of Rain and Life

The smell of rain on dry earth hangs in the air. A light breeze provides cooling. The rainy season completely changes the appearance of the savannah: the sparse landscape of yellowish-golden grass and bare trees has become a dense jungle teeming with life. Toto was right: I bless the rains down in Africa!

A Cry Making the Blood Run Cold

Over 150 years ago, millions of elephants roamed most of the African continent, as well as in Asia from China in the east to Iraq in the west. But due to hunting, poaching and habitat loss, both Asian and African elephants are now only found in highly fragmented habitats. In Southeast Asia, many elephants are used as domestic and working animals. But as for the wild, free-ranging giants, they are endangered. There are two different groups of elephants that live in Africa; the forest elephant (critically endangered) and the savannah elephant (endangered).After excessive trophy hunting in colonised Africa at the beginning of the 20th century, only a few populations of the savannah elephant were able to recover. Due to ongoing poaching, populations continue to decline drastically. About 20,000 elephants are killed in Africa every year.
