Waterburg Hike and 2nd 12-hour Waterhole Count
Not too much new stuff to update everyone on, however recently we did another 12 hour waterhole count in our Bellebeno farm and last Sunday a few of us went on a hike to the Waterburg Plateau at the edge of CCF property. We do waterhole counts in Bellebeno farm once a month to monitor our game populations and to determine the health of each population. We use this data to set our own harvest limits within this game-fenced farm as well as for game research purposes. This time I was counting at a different waterhole than the first count, but we saw mostly the same species as last time. However, we did see a steenbok (a very small species of antelope) as well as a honey badger which was really cool. Below are pictures of the steenbok and honey badger.
Waterburg Plateau is a very large plateau at the edge of CCF’s property. CCF owns the precipice side of the Waterburg (see picture) and we have a trail from the base of the plateau to the base of the rock edge. On the top is a national game reserve. It’s an easy and short hike but it gives you awesome views of CCF’s property and the Waterburg. It is a very beautiful hike and I would recommend going to the Waterburg if anyone ever decides to visit Namibia. There are pictures below. Again, I know it’s not much but there should be another update soon. As always I’m 0pen to any questions and welcome any comments. Until next time…
