As we step into a new year, many of us begin a journey of self-improvement and positive change. This year, let’s take a unique and nature-infused approach to our resolutions. Join us at Kololo Game Reserve for a wildlife-inspired journey in the heart of the Welgevonden Game Reserve, where we’ll explore how the wonders of the reserve can inspire year-round resolutions that not only benefit us but also contribute to the well-being of the environment.
JANUARY – MARCH:
SETTING THE TONE
Embarking on a safari adventure in the first few months of the year can be a transformative and exhilarating experience, setting the tone for impactful wildlife-inspired resolutions. Make it a resolution to witness the majesty of untamed landscapes and diverse ecosystems firsthand, fostering a deeper appreciation for the delicate balance of nature. Exploring the Welgevonden Nature Reserve during this time of year, being the wet summer season, offers the chance to witness the circle of life unfold, with newborn animals taking their first steps into the thriving ecosystem. While the occasional downpour may create muddy trails, the verdant scenery and increased animal activity makes this season a rewarding and picturesque time to experience Kololo Game Reserve in all its natural splendor.
APRIL – JUNE:
This is the start of the dry season, where we start to see the diminishing of vegetation and increased wildlife visibility. This season enhances the chances of spotting a diverse range of animals congregating around water sources. During this period, head out on our Walking Safari’s or Biking Safari’s to be part of the simplicity of life in the open spaces of the reserve and how it can inspire resolutions centered around minimalism and mindful living. Discuss the idea of decluttering not just our physical spaces but also our minds, fostering a sense of peace and balance.
JULY – SEPTEMBER:
ADOPTING A WILDLIFE MINDSET IN WELGEVONDEN GAME RESERVE
Head out on our Game Drives and delve into the unique characteristics of wildlife in the reserve. Embracing a wildlife mindset as a resolution can create a cultivating and profound appreciation for the natural world and encourages us to foster a sense of responsibility towards conservation efforts and minimizing one’s ecological footprint. Just as animals adapt to changing circumstances, this resolution encourages personal growth, adaptability, and a willingness to learn from the wisdom inherent in nature.
OCTOBER – DECEMBER:
SUSTAINABLE RESOLUTIONS & MAKING A DIFFERENCE
As we head into the final months of the year, it’s never too late to form a deeper connection with nature and wildlife so let’s consider the resolution that we may not have conquered yet… contributing to a greater cause. Resolve to supporting organisations dedicated to wildlife protection, channeling efforts towards thwarting the illegal trade in endangered species and preserving the delicate balance of ecosystems. Adopt sustainable living practices, such as reducing single-use plastics, supporting ethical wildlife tourism, and making eco-conscious choices in everyday life. By integrating anti-poaching advocacy and sustainability into our resolutions, we not only prioritize the well-being of wildlife but also play a vital role in safeguarding the Earth’s biodiversity so our future generations can enjoy the joys of safari experiences just like the one you’ve experienced with Kololo Game Reserve.
