Reflections on 2018

I don’t even know where to start with this year. What a year it’s been, it feels much longer than a year and at the same time, I question how is it over already? I’ve been blogging on and off since 2014, but after various work-frustrations, I decided to start blogging on a more full-time…

Trailcam – What is this?

For this week I am uploading only one video, although I got some footage of a Civet, a Genet, a White-tailed Mongoose, a few hares and loads of baboons. I want to share this one with you. What do you think it is? Bush Baby? Tell me in the comments what you think?

Country People – Meet Riekie Pretorius from Mabote, Mozambique

I had the privilege to meet this lovely lady and her family, last weekend. Let’s just say this, I thought I was being brave, moving to Mozambique to a farm that is already developed, until I read Riekie’s story. I hope you enjoy this introduction and do yourself a favour and go and pop in…
