Thank you braai 2014

We are extremely grateful to a number of local landowners and veterinarians for supporting our project. Thanks to these people we are currently conducting research over almost 10,000 km2 and in the last year we collared four brown hyaenas, four leopards and five baboons.

On an annual basis we like to show our appreciation by inviting our neighbours to a braai at Lajuma’s Wilderness Camp. This year we had fantastic weather and a great turn out.
