26/04/10: The Vuyatela War Zone
Tawny’s reign as leader of the Gowrie gang has ended.
20/04/10: Chapter 11 Part 2 Johnson Mgiba
It was around this time that we acquired a second game-drive vehicle and another tracker, Morris Mnisi. Morris’s wife, Eunice, later joined the kitchen staff. This meant that when the camp filled up, Jurie and Morris would drive the new vehicle. Having extra sets of eyes out there in the bush was greatly beneficial as it was difficult on one’s own, searching for game while trying to cover our whole area.
13/04/10: Our Honeymoon!

07/04/10: Emotional Collision
We had spent the previous afternoon with them lying down at a pan deep in the heart of their mother’s territory, and earlier encounter with their half sister, a warm afternoon and a semi full belly, led them to a, retire for the rest of the day.
06/04/10: Guest feedback for March
Another day and another month here at Djuma Bush Lodge. Once again we share some of our guests experiances with you.
06/04/10: Chapter 11 Part 1 Johnson Mgiba
During 1994 I think I had bumped into Johnson once or twice in Utha village, where most of the staff came from, and knew him to be a chef working at a renowned lodge much further north. I noticed him because he looked a little like Captain Picard from StarTrek. Apart from commenting on that I am not sure whether we had ever discussed his coming to work at Djuma. However, when Dixon and Abel mentioned that I was looking rather exhausted, and suggested the need for a full-time qualified chef, my thoughts wandered over to Johnson.
05/04/10: March Month at Marvelous Bush Lodge
Change is upon us as the mornings start getting cold and the bush transformes from green to golden brown.
05/04/10: WHO’S YOUR DADDY
One crazy little hippo ready to conquer the world, besides the fact that this nutty little soul, has close to 1600kg of malevolent reputation as back up.
Here is George
Another action packed month of wild encounters
