Hi everyone! I just wanted to pass on the wonderful news about the wild dogs that were seen on the 4th! I ended up staying in the sands for one night at another lodge and was able to jump aboard the morning drive! One of the main animals everyone wanted to see was giraffe and [...]
Hi all Thank you for your concern, much appreciated! We are all fine and are relatively unscathed compared to many we know in our community; our sympathies and thoughts with those that have lost homes and property. Our thoughts are especially with those who have lost loved ones in these floods. Here are some more [...]
It seems no extreme weather event spares Djuma. After the damage to our mast and intended camera tree earlier this year, another spell of extreme weather found us right in the middle. The cyclone that swept in from the Mozambique channel this week and the incredible rains that it brought have caused widespread devastation in [...]
Hi all Thanks for your concern, much appreciated! We are all OK, if somewhat shaken and wet. Hoedspruit has measured rainfall in excess of 450 mm in the last 36 hours – nobody can recall when it has ever rained like that here, the devastation is incredible; the road infrastructure is extensively damaged and we are cut [...]
1 December, 2011, nestled in Djuma Private Game Reserve, in the heart of the famous Sabi Sand Wildtuin adjoining the Kruger National Park lies unprecedented 5-star luxury.

Several of you have asked for the possibility to tip Marc, Tara and Seb as we say goodbye to them later in the week, so we’ve decided to reopen the tip jar that was used earlier in August. The full amount of any tips given will be split between Marc, Tara and Seb as a [...]
It is with sadness we must announce that this cycle of drives will, for now at least, be the last one. At this point in time Djuma cannot afford to fund this experiment beyond the three months we committed to. The last drive will be 24 November 2011. This was not an easy decision to [...]

If you missed the chat here is a link to the You Tube, thanks once again to muttluver for [...]

All boys together, fantastic collage of the rouge male, Mufufunyane and Xivambalana! HI everyone! I am still amazed at what transpired on the afternoon drive of the 10th! After a false start in the morning, the team became full on technicians to resolve the issue which prevented us going on drive. With the help of [...]
