A defined pattern of black markings that contrast with the white face and fawn-colored body are prominently displayed in dominance rituals to emphasize the length of horns and strength of the shoulder. We are tremendously proud to be home to some of these majestic buck and extend a warm invitation to you all to…

Many of you have probably seen pictures of two giraffes gently rubbing their necks together.

This practice is actually far from friendly—it’s closer to locker room wrestling or even actual fighting. It’s called necking, and it’s usually done by male giraffes as a test of strength—the giraffes bang, twist, and rub their necks together to see which of…

Kudu horns have spirals, which allow males to spar by interlocking horns. The males then proceed to shove and twist until one opponent is knocked off balance and thrown down. Adult kudus are an important food source for many larger predators, such as lions and spotted hyenas. Many medium-sized carnivores prey upon kudu yearlings and calves. Newborns also serve as a food source for smaller predators.

Dating back to the early 1800s, Cambedoo Manor is a fine example of Cape Dutch architecture. Wide Oregon pine floorboards gleam from generations of wear, while thick walls keep the untamed Karoo elements firmly at bay.
