unquietmind: Wildlife Conservation in Botswana, Zimbabwe & South Africa

In order to better educate ourselves on the the wildlife, geography, and conservation efforts in Southern Africa, I've compiled a few links to more info. This isn't heavy academic stuff but it does help provide a broader picture an a bit more insight into what we see at Pete's Pond. These links relate specifically to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park regaion - home of Pete's Pond.


Mashatu Game Reserve (This one is more tourist related, but the Pond is in Mashatu, so I had to include it)
Lots of nice info, including details on the Central Limpopo Valley Elephant Research Project
