  • A massive herd of Elephant found at Jejane Dam. This is one of the biggest herds we have had on the farm before. 
So great to see elephant in abundance like this.
Thanks Chris for the video.

  • A Jackal and Guineafowl taking advantage of the massive amount of flying ants coming out of their holes and flying around.
After some really good rains so far these flying ants have come out in abundance. 
Thanks Daimen for the video.

  • The summer migrants are coming back now and the Wahlberg’s Eagle was one of the first to come back.
This is an interesting one because it is the pale morph which is great to see the different varieties of these birds.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • That time of year again when the weavers are building their nest for the breeding season.
A beautiful Red-headed Weaver building his nest on the property. 
There is a huge fever tree at our entrance gate where you will always see these red-headed weavers and where they build their nests as well, so next time you visit the farm look up and have a look before heading into the reserve.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • The two Cheetah are still on the property and we’re seen on the N1 just outside the residential area. 
Hopefully they stick around for a while. 
It would seem the lions have moved off the property at the moment and this could be the reason why these cheetah are sticking around for the time being.
Thanks Niall for the photo.

  • CHEETAH!!!! 
Two cheetah have been found with a kill, possibly a duiker.
This sighting is deep into the property so hopefully these two cheetah hang around for a while.
Thanks Pierre for the photo.

Focus on Conservation

Jejane continues to proactively support conservation initiatives, directly and indirectly. We encourage shareholders to become involved.

Elephants and bees

Our Bees, Trees, Elephants & People Project continually grows from strength to strength. In November 2019, this project turned four years old, a wonderful achievement on a collaboration that we are very proud to share with Jejane Private Nature Reserve (JPNR). We have also harvested ten batches of “elephant-friendly honey” between 2018 and 2020 – bottling nearly 100 litres of natural honey!

This is part of an MSc research project undertaken by Robin Cook through the University of the Witwatersrand’s Centre for African Ecology Lab (South Africa) to test how effective African honeybees are at protecting iconic trees when compared to the tried and tested methods of wire-net protection which does increase the survival rate of tall trees favoured by elephants as food sources.
