PLEASE DON'T EAT MY HUSBAND!!!  This ostrich was dangerous.  There was a group of 3 males along Seekoei Road.  2 were relatively relaxed but the 3rd came right up very close to  us obviously looking for food.  It's mouth was wide open and it's strong beak was dangerously close.  It took no notice of our efforts to shoo it away.  Please be very careful of the ostriches.... They can become very aggressive and a kick from an ostrich can cause serious damage .  Please don't feed them .  Feeding them makes them associate people with food and puts all of us, including our children and our visitors, in extreme danger! (Joce Gordon)



The annual braai was held on Friday the 18 November at Henk van Rooyen.  It was an overcast, cool day and without rain. 

The event was enjoyed by all who attended.  Peter Craig-Cooper gave a speech of thanks to the Game Rangers for all the assistance they have given to the Honorary Rangers in their work for the good of Marloth Park. He also thanked them for the difficult and sometimes unpleasant tasks they often have to handle.

Elfas Mahori, Senior Game Ranger, replied with his thanks for the efforts and support that the Honorary Rangers give them with their jobs and for giving them the celebration braai. We thank Honorary Rangers Nellie and Jim Morgan who arranged all the food and drink for this event.  Nellie made delicious pap with her mouth-watering sauce and Jim was the chief braai-master and was helped by Game Rangers Jaco and Terence to braai the meat.

Early in December the Nkomazi Game Rangers of Marloth Park had a problem with an essential piece of equipment used for tracking.

The Honorary Rangers immediately loaned the Nkomazi Game Rangers their antenna, and then arranged to supply them with another one as soon as possible.   This was handed over by Evan Powell to Elfas Mahori, Senior Game Ranger on Tuesday 31 January.  The Nkomazi Game Rangers can now continue with their invaluable work of ensuring the welfare of our Game in the area which they track 24/7!

waterconservationmission200wConservation in Marloth Park: Our Primary Concern

Our primary concern as Honorary Rangers is the well-being and long-term survival of Marloth Park as a viable nature Conservancy.

To achieve this, we must    •  Manage the veldt    and    •  Manage the Widlife

All property Owners bear a responsibility to care for their own properties and ensure that everyting we do encourages the well-being of the veldt and therefore the animals.

On this website there are articles describing how we can best ensure that we keep the veldt natural and the animals wild.
