Seems as if we’re right in the middle of winter and springs annual tug of war as we set the clocks forward last weekend and prepare for the big thaw.

Posted February 25, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. By my calculation we only have 3 weeks of winter left before the weather breaks. That is of course if you listened to Punxsutawney Phil that is. The groundhog never saw his shadow so winter of course is almost over. No matter how long the frozen season lasts, one thing is for sure. We’re going to be open (minus major holidays), and the animals will be here too. This week we take a look at one of the mighty antelope that we have living in Timbavati Wildlife Park, the eland. The…

When Is It A Tortoise And Not A Turtle?

When Is It A Tortoise And Not A Turtle?

Posted February 18, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog. I was sitting around and thinking to myself, “Self, When is a turtle not a tortoise or vice versa? Then self said to me “well you have that really killer video clip of Ashley explaining the large fundamental differences between the two” and myself was right! Ok I am kidding but I do have the clip and it does give us some fundamental differences. The largest one of course being the difference between being able to swim or not. Tortoises dwell on land. There are a great many other differences between them…

The Coatimundi

Posted January 21, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greetings friends and welcome to this week’s blog post. This week we will enter the world of the Coatimundi. Coatimundi are also called by the names: Hog-nosed Coon, Snookum Bear, and Brazilian Aardvark. That’s a lot of aliases to remember so we will just stick with coatimundi, it feels easier. This native of the southern North American and South American continents is diurnal, meaning it is a day time creature. There are many types of coati, the White-nosed which can be found in on both continents and the Brown-nosed which is exclusive to the southern continent. The coati live in…

Greetings friends and welcome to the end of 2018. Can you believe it? Another 365 days and 52 weeks are now in the books. 2018 saw a number of new features in Timbavati Wildlife Park.
