Botswana Conservation Project Moves to a New Camp
The new camp will allow our staff and volunteers to have more areas to relax and enjoy a ‘braai’ (traditional BBQ). Most importantly, we will have a new office from which to conduct our research. As Motswiri camp is located closer to the village of Mathathane, we will have some signal for communications, which will be new for our staff and volunteers. This will make logistics easier and allow us more time to devote to conservation!
Motswiri camp is based in a section of the Kwa Tuli reserve that is home to several hyena clans, leopards and of course elephants. During construction of the camp, we had a few surprise visits from these creatures and they will no doubt be regular and popular visitors in the future!
