If you love the outdoors you’re probably rather cheese off during the lockdown. With this in mind, a lodge within the iconic Kruger National Park launched free virtual safaris to viewers at home.
All you need is some internet access to see video footage of actual sightings, as well as some of the exhilarating encounters experienced by game rangers on patrol at Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the Manyeleti Game Reserve.
“The national lock-down in South Africa has been very challenging for humans, but in the bush, nature continues undisturbed as it has since the beginning of time. The conservation of our nature reserves and protection of our precious wildlife remains a priority for the Tintswalo family,” says Lisa Goosen, CEO of Tintswalo.
“Within the Greater Kruger region, the Tintswalo wildlife management team in the Manyeleti Nature Reserve is ‘on the beat’ in the bush throughout lockdown and continues to monitor and safeguard our vulnerable fauna and flora.”
The Manyeleti Game Reserve is known worldwide for its Big Five sightings and its birdlife. Goosen says, “We invite you to enjoy the freedom to escape for a while, focus on positivity and take delight in the wonders of the African bush as inspiration for planning your next safari.”
