Nambiti - a Private large Mammal Reserve near Ladysmith in Kwazulu-Natal

While staying here I worked with Keri Research monitoring the movements of a Pride of Lions and three Cheetahs.  To understand more about the work of Keri and the Reserve you will find all of the information you need on their websites.
