Here at Ultimate Adventures, conservation is very close to our hearts and we like to help out wherever we can. One of the projects that we are involved with is Ingwe Leopard Research. Leopards are the last of the big five roaming free outside game reserves and national parks in South Africa. It is here (the largest land mass of Africa), where leopards are under threat.

TOUR DETAILS

Ingwe aims to conserve and protect this precious resource. After all leopards are at the top of the food chain and as such a key indicator of a healthy eco-system, which in turn affects us all.

To do this we are gathering data on leopard density, behaviour and population dynamics outside of formally protected areas, enabling reasoned policy decisions to be made. Remarkably this data does not currently exist. We need to fill this gap in understanding before it’s too late.

You can also make a difference and get involved in this great research project by joining us for the weekend of 15-18 December deep in the Lydenburg hills at Black Leopard Camp, where we will spend the weekend with the research team and assist them with their daily tasks of checking and setting camera traps and collecting data on leopard spoor while we are out walking in the bush.

Accommodation is in luxury safari tents with en-suite bathrooms and outside showers too. Tents are fully serviced so all you need to bring along are your personal items. The cost of the trip includes three delicious meals a day, guided bush walks and a 4×4 trail through the Lydenburg hills.
