A piggy weekend at Pilanesberg

On the weekend of the 24-26th June 2016, after moving a tree that an elephant had put on Tshwene, we managed to annoy the other HOs on duty… In one day, we saw three Wild Dogs (the splinter group of females), Buffalo and in the afternoon, TWO leopards!!!

But the fun part was watching a Warthog having a good wallow.

Then on Sunday we came across two Warthogs “making reinforcements”,

Editors Note:  Thanks very much to HO Lesley Cornish for submitting this entertaining article and the photos
