Reality adventures with my rescue warthog Dolly, and my 20-year old Landrover, Vlakvark.
Exploring Africa’s wildlife and wonders on and off the beaten track.

Did You Know?

A WARTHOG is the most commonly seen wild pig of the African Bush. It’s tail stands straight up when alert or in danger.
On close inspection the tail has markings similar to that of a snake so in actual fact this could work as a scare tactic to predators.
Other theories are that the tail stands up to enable the mother warthog to see her brood running through the grasslands.

VLAKVARK is the Afrikaans name for a warthog and the name of our Loyal “long-in-the-tooth” Landrover!
