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.
Not many experiences beat a few hours next to the fishing waters. With 13km of riverfront, there is plenty a safe place for the whole family to enjoy the thrill of trying to catch the biggest fish. With a wide variety of species in the Mokolo river, you never know who will be your next catch.
