Likewise, interactions with wild animals should be limited.
Look at them, Admire them but keep your distance and above all never feed them.
Do not walk at night because dangerous animals (predators) still manage to cross the secure fence of the estate and are particularly active at night (Hyenas, Lycaons and leopards are quite regularly spotted ) .
No fear of daylight, no incidents have been reported since the creation of this estate.
A little anecdote about the magnificent leopard: No fence can stop it, when you see some bushes in South Africa, you always have the possibility of having a leopard around .
