Our Student Program: Bush Training
Zangarna is a working game farm. We have general plains game such as Giraffe, Kudu, Impala, Warthdog and Zebra to name but a few. When you fence in a piece of land and have wild animals living on that land you have an obligation to care for those animals. Normally wild animals would stay in an area and utilise the food that found there. As soon as the food is gone they would move to a new area (think of the great migrations in the Masai Mara). When animals are fences in we need to make sure our water and food supply is adequate to sustain the animals in our care.
