Repairs for Bhejane and Mphafa Hide CampaignIn the weekend of 20 October, large parts of KZN experienced a severe thunderstorm with heavy hail. This storm was detrimental for both Mphafa and Bhejane hide in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve. The tatch roofs have sustained significant damage, which needs to be repaired as soon as possible.
A team of local tatchers has been in the game reserve to assess the costs for the repairs. Building relationships with the local community is very important, so we're very happy to have this local crew working on the hides. The estimated cost to repair the roofs on both hides is R73k
Besides the roofs, the funds raised will also be used to complete the repairs on the Bhejane Hide borehole. This will include both the repairs to the pump as well as establishing an enclosure around the pump to protect it from the elements and animals. With the borehole pump functioning again, the waterhole that Bhejane hide looks out over, will have water continuously, making for even better game-viewing.
