Rhulani Insights 116 – A leopard tortoise in the bush

  • May 26, 2019 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

Look behind the scenes of Rhulani Safari Lodge.

Actually, we wanted to take a short break here at this beautiful, open spot and show you in today’s blog the stunning area with a few zebras. The bush keeps coming up with surprises.

In our backs, a strange inhabitant of Madikwe walks through the savannah: a pretty big leopard tortoise. These animals are quite common, but are usually not the ones which our guests expect to discover on a game drive.

With our specialist Sean we talk briefly about the leopard tortoise and enjoy once again one of these beautiful moments on safari.

“It seems to make a lot of sense that slow lives, as well as being enjoyable, are long lives. One only has to think of the example of the tortoise for proof of this theory from the animal world.” – Tom Hodkinson, British Writer

Stay tuned for the next episode on Sunday 9 June when we finally show you our new bathrooms.
