A Chameleon eyes me carefully as it negotiates its way through the leaves.
From the platform this morning at 8am you could see 4 giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, eland & impala. Its so green & lush & the hide was open by the dam for bird watching.
We are so lucky to have this piece of paradise to walk in, in our City Centre!
A big thank-you to the Mukuvisi folks for letting us have our Spider Club of Zimbabwe AGM there last Sunday. We found plenty of spiders and a host of other interesting insects as well. More pictures continue to filter in via our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/spiderclubzw. Here are a few of my personal favourites (names in the captions):
Mukuvisi Woodlands
Greetings everyone. Many of you know our Director Ken Worsley. Sadly he will be leaving Mukuvisi at the end of the week to spend more time in the Bvumba. We thank him for all he has done to make the Woodlands a place people want to come to and visitor numbers have increased. We wish him well for the future. We will miss him.
In the interim Perry Chan Jack, assisted by myself, will be running the Woodlands.
On 29 September 2021, BirdLife Zimbabwe under the Spring Alive project invited 20 students and 3 teachers from Chizungu Primary School to Mukuvisi Woodlands to participate in the Nature Quest Award Scheme. Jan Watt who was part of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) assisted BirdLife Zimbabwe in developing the Nature Quest Award Scheme which is a programme designed to engage with as many children as possible, instilling a love of nature from an early age. The purpose of the programme is not only aimed at helping primary school children to connect with their environment but to encourage them to take action to save nature. 21 Nature Quest Activities have been developed for the Award Scheme. Students from Chizungu Primary participated in the Go Birdwatching and Trees, Leaves and Seeds Nature Quest Activities.

Greetings - some news and views. Disappointingly very few members turned up for the AGM on 30 November. I know these can be fairly boring, so please let me know what would entice you! A good speaker? A walk in an area not usually accessible to the public? An interesting video? What? Please tell us what you thoughts are -

09/01/2022

PLEASE NOTE - anyone hearing that the Woodlands have had an armed robbery, this is NOT CORRECT . It may have been somewhere down the road, but the policemen at the station over the road know nothing about it.

01/01/2022

Greetings and best wishes for a healthier and better year ahead from the team at Mukuvisi Woodlands. Thank you for your continued support which we hope will go forward into this year.

Our bushbuck and zebra looking fat and happy. The Woodlands have had lovely soaking rain bringing relief from the shrivelling heat popping up and out everywhere. Beautiful.

Although there are only 3 baby wildebeest in this lovely family pic - there are actually 4!

The Woodlands are blooming and we have new babies. 12 impala lambs at the last count, 2 wildebeest and possibly 2 eland. We also have a baby blue duiker but it is very wary of people and difficult to find. The national flower the Flame Lily is making a beautiful show. Please remember that picking them or any plant is not allowed. Come and enjoy

Morning meetings to discuss how wet everyone got during the beautiful rain yesterdy💧

As nature lovers we appreciate the wonderful first rains so much as they mark the beginning of the green season which will bring food and life to the wilderness!

With the lack of water not only Harare but the world is facing, every drop counts! This is our moment to appreciate the rainfall and the life it brings 🌦

Come, take a walk through the woodlands and watch them change colour in the coming months 💚

Did you know that we have sable 🖤 at Mukuvisi Woodlands?

You may not seen them as regularly as the zebra, eland, giraffe or impala but they are there, usually enjoying the wooded area. This environment is what they know and prefer and where you will find them residing in both East and Southern Africa.

At Mukuvisi we are privileged to have 6 in the herd
1 adult male
1 sub adult male
2 adult females &
2 calves

Keep an eye out 👀 for them on your woodland walk and you might be lucky enough to spot them!

Have you ever walked through the woodlands and felt as though you were being watched? 👀

The chances are that you probably were by these eager eyes that are always alert!

Although they can be difficult to spot in both the dry and green season, if you scan the grass line you’ll find that they saw you first!

Always the first and most common animal to see on safari, the African bush would not be the same without the Impala 💚

World Rhino Day 🦏

A wonderful opportunity to ask the world to stop 🛑 and think about these magnificent creatures and the fight to conserve their place on this planet.

Today we honour and raise awareness for the Rhino that we are so privileged to still live among.

Thank you to Thetford Game Reserve (where these pictures were taken) for their dedication to this cause. Thank you as well to the many other associations, both local to Zimbabwe and international, the known and the unknown, the sung and the unsung, the organisations and the individuals who work tirelessly to aid the preservation of this incredible animal.

Though we are not privileged enough at this stage to have them in our herd at Mukuvisi, we are still so grateful to share the planet with them.

Continue to conserve & protect 💚
