Bush Drums September 2003

New Wildlife Manager

If you have visited recently you may have met our new Wildlife Manager Donald Bunge.

“Bunge” as he likes to be called, comes with a degree in Wildlife Management.

He has a great love for animals and is very enthusiastic about making his mark in saving Kenya’s rich wildlife heritage. We are proud to have him with us.

Meanwhile, Peter Kennedy, The Mt. Kenya Game Ranch General Manager has left us to spend more time developing his small farm on Laikipia. We are sorry to see him, wife Gillie and son Lorian leave. We wish them all the best for the future.

Kenya women

Recently the Game Ranch was the colorful scene of more than 100 women cutting out acres of “bad” grass that threatened to swart the more nutritious “good” grass underneath.

These industrious women weathered the scorching sun to dig up the bushels and pile them high on numerous mounds which we subsequently burned to destroy.

Recent rains have brought out new fresh grass to benefit our wildlife.
