Life returns to Save Valley…
In Southern Zimbabwe private landowners in Save Valley have created a fantastic nature reserve in spite of decades of a hostile political climate.
In 2016 they experienced a devastating drought. The situation was extreme and they were forced to feed the game hundreds of tons of hey to save years of hard work building strong populations of large herbivores. This season they finally got a good rainfall and life is once again returning to the dead bush.
This video was filmed at the beginning of 2017 in the hunting area Humani which is a part of the huge Save Valley Conservancy. The area has been managed wisely for many years by Roger Whittall Safaris to the benefit of the wild African nature. The funding mainly derives from hunting tourism.
Spare a couple of minutes to watch this beautiful video of the rejuvenation of the African bush after one of the worst dry spells for many years. The contrast between the dry and the green bush is breathtaking.
It’s hard not to long for Africa, when you watch this!
