Rhulani Insights 209 – Burnt soil

  • September 24, 2023 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

Look behind the scenes of Rhulani Safari Lodge.

A massive bushfire recently raged in the north of the reserve, which we successfully fought. Today we visit the area and find ourselves on scorched earth. Is a bushfire just normal or an exceptional situation? Let's talk to Sean.

We get the impression that bushfires are part of nature, are completely normal, and that fighting fires is definitely part of the duties of every ranger.

We are aware every day of the possible dangers that can arise from a fire. But on the other hand, it has a regenerating and positive influence on future vegetation, especially when the next rainy season comes. Then the lunar landscape will immediately transform into a green, lush splendor.

“Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.” – Martha Graham, American Dancer

Stay tuned for the next episode on 8 October when we put our solar system into operation.
