Tracking Course and Guide Assessments

Posted on January 29, 2009

The Guides and Trackers at Leopard Hills once again had the privilege of having Lee Gutteridge from the Entabeni Guide School to do our guide and tracking assessments that we do twice a year.

Hannes, Gary and I did another tracking assessment with great results. We learned loads and even saw the tracks of a Marsh/Water mongoose that havenโ€˜t been seen in the reserve for more than 15 years. According to one of the trackers he has seen this nocturnal animal at least twice in the last year out side the reserve.

Our trackers Ronald, June and Abraham did a local guide assessment which is the entry level qualification to the world of professional guiding. Congratulations to Ronald and June for both passing this assessment with great results. Ronald thanks for teaching Gary and I about the symbiotic relationship between Blue Waxbills and Wasps.

  1. I have said it once and I will say it again, well done the Leopard Hills Team for proving yet again that you are leaders in the field. Well done and thank you Marius for facilitating this effort and taking such a keen interest in your Team, congrats to you all.

  2. Looks like you guys had fun – love the pic of Hannes … Thanks a again for the fab game viewing this week – very sad to be out of the bush. Will get some pics up soon – maybe even the muddy ones!!!

  3. We have very much enjoyed your postings. It allows us to revisit a wonderful experience. Since we visited you in your winter and things were very dry, it would be wonderful if you could post some pictures of your summer. For instance, I’m sure the the walks to the cabins look much different now as does the bush itself. Oh by the way, I’m looking out my window right now at a foot of snow on our frozen lake. Thanks Carolyn from Michigan
