Exciting times for Cape Town game reserve as they welcome their new baby hippo

On the 10th March 2018, a new baby hippo came as a great surprise to the game reserve located just outside of Cape Town, South Africa. Recently, it's been a time of celebration for the game reserve with a white rhino calf being born in December 2017 and new wildlife releases onto the Big Five reserve.

"We hope guests will see this adorable hippo calf on their Big 5 safari and be inspired to take action to protect them in the wild,” says one of the people working at the Cape Town game reserve. It has since been confirmed that the baby hippo is a girl!

We can't wait to see the wildlife population continue to grow in the future. Who knows which animal will be next to give birth.. maybe a leopard.. or a elephant..? We'll have to wait and see!

My Sardine Run experience

by Petrus Jacobus van der Walt February 24, 2022

Summary of the sardine run,

This the biggest of animal migrations in the world. The sardine run, is totally wild unpredictable event, that when it all comes together, as it does for three months annually, the sardine run is the most spectacular wildlife spectacle on the planet; dolphins, seals and whales whip the ocean surface into whitecaps, thousands of birds diving, whales lunge feeding through shoals scattering the fish. It is a twilight zone where time stands still and becomes meaningless, as you witness this amazing play of life and death unfolding.

If you are looking for a real African experience and adventure diving at its best, you’re unlikely to be disappointed!
