Tuli Safari Lodge in Botswana reports that 18 African Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus) are being reintroduced to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve. It is hoped that their re-introduction will be a success and will
contribute to growing the population of these greatly endangered animals.
This important project is being managed by The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and Wild Dog Action Group. It is the intention to radio collar two dogs and have a researcher monitor the pack over the next 18months.
Northern Tuli Game Reserve is assisting with the many and varied expenses which come with a project such as this, which include vehicle running costs, radio collars, employment of a community liaison officer and more.
Tuli Safari Lodge has teamed up with Mopane Bush Lodge, just across the border in South Africa, to offer a fascinating and varied four-night stay combining a Botswana safari with a visit to the World Heritage Site at Mapungubwe, plus the chance to track wild dog at the Venetia wild dog project.
In addition, there will soon be a new camping and self-catering option in the Tuli area. Tuli Safari Lodge has formed a joint venture project with the local community at Molema, providing four fully furnished log chalets and four camping sites. They hope to be open for business around Easter.
As part of their continuous improvement program, they have recently appointed an assistant management couple to support the General Manager, Jacques van der Merwe.
Rob and Heidi Wightman bring great front of house, administrative and
maintenance skills. Tuli Safari Lodge will be exhibiting as usual on the Botswana stand at Indaba in Durban from May 10-13.
