An Eyeful of Wildlife at Thanda Private Game Reserve written by Sarah Muñoz | Posted on January 17th, 2012 PausePlayPlayPrev|Next An African elephant makes his way through the bush. Thanda is home to the Big Five, including the imposing rhino. A colorful insect that “hearts” Thanda Private Game Reserve. Our tracker keeping eyes and ears open for wildlife. A postcard from South Africa. Young cubs cavorting with their mom and older sister. This mischievous cub couldn’t quite figure out how to climb down the tree. Among our favorites: the always-regal giraffe. Buffalo—inyathi in Zulu—are easily spotted from open Land Rovers. Thanda is as rife with mammals such as zebra as it is in birds and amphibians.
