Elephant Movements within the Park

It has been a very exciting start to November 2015 as we collard an elephant in the Northern herd and in the Southern herd.

Elephants in the Sanbona Game Reserve

The oldest elephant bull in the south was collard on Wednesday 4 November 2015 with a GPS collar. Since then I have been able to view their movements as hourly readings are taken.

Over the 6th, 7th and 8th they have spent time moving from the Gatskraal river line, west of the Almond Farm, through to Windmill Valley, Raltelfontein South, and the valleys around the Hoeksberg, before moving back to the Gatskraal river line.
This movement was often covered in the space of 24 hours, before being repeated. Midday on the 8th they returned to the Gatskraal river where they stayed for three days before heading back through the valleys to Windmill road, Ratelfontein South and the area around Hereroa Track.

The Matriarch in the northern herd was collard and is also doing well. They have spent most of their time this week on the western side of the dam this week. We will start the diet monitoring and so spend a day every two weeks viewing the herd in the south and a day in the north.
