The Sabi Sands WildTuin (Game Reserve) recently completed a massive census of the herbivore species that move freely throughout the reserve as well as in and out of the Kruger National Park. When the census came out, we were pleased and, of course, happy to report that many of the large densities of animals occur within the Londolozi property.
The long term land management of Londolozi has shown extremely positive results of the course of the last three decades. With yearly financial investments in developing, protecting and working with the habitats throughout Londolozi as well as following early guidance from ecologist Ken Tinley, there now is a significantly obvious trend towards how many of the herbivore species have been attracted onto Londolozi to graze, create home ranges and territories here. Naturally the predators follow the abundance of prey species (herbivores) and as a result the densities of Leopard, Lion and Hyena for game viewing are prolific.
See below the different density maps of the species:
The big herds of buffalo are indicated on this map as being in our south eastern corner, very close to the Sand River. These herds will, however frequently move along grasslands towards other sources of water both north and south from the indicated postions.
Impala are frequently found along the Sand River as well as in the areas surrounding both north and south of the Londolozi Camps. There is also a large portion on our eastern boundary.
