Leopard Walk Lodge is home to diverse wildlife forms including hingeback tortoises.
Hundreds of other species from large to small call our reserve home. At times we also need to provide a refuge to wildlife that has been displaced in unprotected areas where their habit is lost to human activities.
Species that are displaced and have no habitat to sustain them and are amidst human activities will be in danger and will not be able to easily survive. Today we rescued a young hinge back tortoise and released him to safety near to our wildlife Reserve’s waterhole – below the Lodge. It is humbling to know that this young hingeback tortoise will now be wild and free in his new home and safe Refuge.
