A (huge) surprise visitor!
Our sanctuary staff live at Tau camp, within Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve. There is certainly never a dull moment! This is what Foundation Director Caroline had to say about the latest occurrence – a surprise visitor!
Sometimes we forget we live on a Big 5 Game reserve, but the animals have a way of reminding us. We live in Tau camp and are surrounded by an electric fence and gate. Any of you that follow us regularly will know that the warthogs broke through the fence a few months ago. Since then, we have added strands of wire and managed to stop all break ins… until the other night.
Brenton, our new field guide, woke up at 2am and heard branches being snapped off and crunching leaves. He opened the door and was surprised to be confronted by a large elephant!
This elephant is known as Tiny Tim and often goes on walkabouts at the south of the game reserve.
