Leopard Tortoise, Safari Guide, South Africa - GoHop ie - Unravel Travel TV [00:53]
Ranger, Chris Herbst talks about a Leopard Tortoise during a Safari Game Drive at the Thanda Nani Game Lodge located on a 7000 ha Private Game Reserve 10 minutes East along the N4 from the Malelane entrance to the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The Leopard Tortoise is a large and attractively marked tortoise found in the savannas of eastern and southern Africa, from Sudan to the southern Cape. This tortoise favors semi-arid, thorny to grassland habitats, although some Leopard Tortoises have been found in rainier areas. In both very hot and very cold weather they may dwell in abandoned fox, jackal, or anteater holes. Leopard Tortoises do not dig other than to make nests in which to lay eggs. It grazes extensively upon mixed grasses. It also favors succulents and thistles. The African Leopard Tortoise typically lives 80 to 100 years. Thanda Nani Game Lodge is a 3 Star property. The reserve has a breeding program where rare and endangered species like Sable and Roan antelope are bred before being released on the main reserve, disease free buffalo also roam the reserve with over 150 white and Black Rhinos - making it the largest private collection of Rhinos in the world!

Conquering the Cape Peninsula [02:45]
Venturing south from Cape Town, we were the first people to set foot on the Cape Peninsula in ages. Three seconds to be exact. The first stop was Hout Bay. I hopped a boat to Duiker Island. There, cape fur seals in solidarity with the Occupy Movement have occupied the island (right on, comrades). Then to Simon Town and Boulder Beach. Here a colony of penguins have claimed the continent as part of Greater Antarctica. Carrying on, on clunky bikes we rode a few kilometers through landscape like the Scottish moors (och aye, and not a piper to be heard... nor Mel screaming) to Buffelsfontein for eating. Finally to the Cape of Good Hope, The southwestern tip of Africa. The Atlantic and Indian Oceans really meet further east at Cape Agulhas. But if you can't make it there, you can pretend you saw the oceans kiss. The musical accompaniment is Lighthouse by The Waifs. Created: 25 February 2012
