As part of our conservation first policy on Kaingo Game Reserve our Reserve Management team, lead by Jacque Fourie, the team must ensure that the animals mineral needs are met. These blocks or licks provide essential elements such as phosphorus and biometals, required for bone and muscle growth.
Here at Kaingo Game Reserve we are blessed to have a few troops of baboon. The great natural historian Eugene Nielen Marais did a study on the baboons of the central Waterberg, birthing the classic research and popular book 'My friends the Baboon' (in his native Afrikaans, Burgers van die Berge).
Few antelope have such a bearing of greatness as a kudu. The females, with their oversized ears, white tail exposed, as they bound off into the brush after being disturbed. The regal look of a kudu bull as it disappears into the brush, corkscrew horns laid back against it flanks.
One of the enigmatic bird species occasionally found on Kaingo Game Reserve is the Black Stork. This rather large bird who breeds in Central Europe, Russia, and Southern Africa, tends to be largely piscivorous (fish eating), but it will also take frogs, small mammals, crabs and other birds.
