Ndumo Game Reserve

The game reserve that I choose to talk about is, the Ndumo Game Reserve; this is a small South African game reserve located in the far northeast district of KwaZulu-Natal known as Maputaland. This game reserve shared border with Mozambique, where the Pongola River joins the Great Usutu River. It is adjacent to the Tembe Elephant Park. Ndumo is a remote area; its closest major city of Durban is roughly 250 miles away. Or closest town of Mkuze is 68 miles away.

Ndumo hosts a diverse range of habitats including sand forest, dense riverine forest, flood plains, alluvial plains, reedbeds, grassland, broad-leaved and acacia woodlands and extremely dense thornveld. Ndumo is popular for its birdlife and despite its small size; the reserve has recorded in excess of 430 bird species including residents and seasonal migrants. The park’s abundance of pans, flood plains and rivers (Pongola & Usutu) provide suitable habitat for many aquatic species. The Maputaland area in general is relatively rich in bird life due to the ecosystem diversity as well as its geographical location: the area forms the southernmost range for a great many eastern and north-eastern African bird species. This game reserve received a high amount of rain fall annual.
Ndumo is home to many sought-after bird species such as: Pel’s Fishing Owl, Narina Trogon, African Broadbill, Eastern Nicator (formerly “Yellow-spotted Nicator” but this name is now given to another bird, the Western Nicator), African Cuckoo-Hawk, Large mammals found in Ndumo include Nyala, Hippopotamus, Nile Crocodile, Impala and Cape Buffalo. While Elephants are been host at the neighboring Tembe Elephant Park. As with all parts of Maputaland, malaria is endemic and visitors are advised to take the proper precautions. There is an Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife campsite and hutted camp. Wilderness Safaris run a luxury tented safari camp. This park is to be included into the: Usuthu-Tembe-Futi Trans frontier Conservation Area.

Game Reserve

The Game Reserve I have Chosen is Yosemite, It’s located in California in Yosemite Village. It was protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls. This park is nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more interesting creatures. The national park has mild climate and a mixture of plant species that provide a lush habitat for animals to live and feel at home in each location. This National Park supports more than 400 species of vertebrates including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. There you might catch the eyes of an acorn woodpecker, a California ground squirrel, a bobcat, or a Western fence lizard. The high diversity of species is the result of diverse habitats in Yosemite that are largely intact.

Adventure Recreation

Canada, Calgary
The park I have selected is the Canada Olympic Park in Alberta, the track that is used for sledding was also once used by athletes in 1988 during the winter games. The term sledding refers to traveling down a snowy hill using a sled that has a flexible flyer with wooden slats and metals runners. It’s usually done during the winter. The activity has been known to exist as fringe recreational activity.
