Zoutpanputs Game Farm, Kalahari

20150726_170620In the wild expanse of the Kalahari the game farm Zoutpanputs offers the keen lover of nature many an enticing opportunity.

Large herd of springbok and gemsbok (oryx) roam, often seen running or licking salt on the pans. A surprise sighting of rare creatures such as a pangolin could await the visitor over the next dune.

The farm offers more than 50 species of birds that should keep the keen birder busy for days.

The brilliant night sky is the perfect backdrop to the music of the night, such as a jackal calling or the haunting conversation between two spotted Eagle Owl. The beautiful lilac breasted roller (troupant) is often seen in stately old camelthorns on drives along the dry riverbed of the Molopo.

Fine opportunities such as delicate winter grass against a clear blue sky will keep the photographer clicking.

Zoutpanputs ia a 6000 ha game farm with antelope such as sable, gemsbok, springbok, zebra, eland, red hartebeest, steenbok, blue wildebeest and duiker.

The abundant birdlife of the Kalahari can be experienced all round: in trees such as the camelthorn, grey camelthorn, sheperd’s tree, black thorn and silver cluster leaf, and the grass on the dunes.

Getting to know the meerkat families living around the lodge is a most entertaining pastime.
