The Wildebeest's Review of Wild Magazine Issue 35

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

The Winter 2016 issue of Wild Magazine advertises articles on Marakele, Mokala, Vernon Crookes, Oribi Gorge, Kruger’s Honorary Rangers and more. Sounds like the magazine will be a good read on a chilly Highveld evening.

I have not been to Mokala Game Reserve but, after reading the article, it will definitely be part of my upcoming travel plans. I learnt that the Setswana work “mokala” means “camel thorn.” I am very familiar with Vernon Crookes and Oribi nature reserves and the articles brought back wonderful memories of many birding trips to these areas.

Next up I learnt the meaning of the Tswana word “marakele.” It means the “place of herding.” Marakele National Park is a beautiful park with amazing scenery, and it has a wide range of accommodation options. My advice: go there!
