AN UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP

An unlikely friendship between two men with very different backgrounds became the foundation for one of the most successful African conservation stories. The deeply rooted bond between Ian Player and Magqubu Ntombela outlasted a lifetime and brought immense change to the African game reserves. Despite the 32-year age difference, the friendship superseded race, culture and religion. Together, the pair dedicated their lives to protecting, understanding, and conserving wild nature while proving to South Africa that all walks of man could come together as one. While Ian certainly had the drive and passion to assure that wilderness remains a constant reality, he fully credits Magqubu for expanding his spiritual understanding on the fundamental and physical aspects of life on earth. In his […]

OPERATION RHINO: BEFORE AND AFTER THE TSETSE FLY

For Ian Player, it seemed almost impossible that in the seventy-two thousand acres of the Umfolozi Game Reserve four hundred white rhino found their home. When he first visited the silent, red bush in 1952 he saw nothing but a few solitary animals and miles of grasslands. Yet, he quickly was overcome by the majesty of the white rhino’s presence and would spend years ensuring their existence. The white rhino has not always been the most sought-after animal by poachers. In fact, for a short period of time they were one of the least killed. Between the 1920s and the 1960s wide scale efforts to eradicate the dangerous tsetse fly became a main focus of the Department of Veterinary Services, […]
