Jessica the Hippo

Her story began in March of 2000 when the combined Blyde and Olifants Rivers flooded and swept the newly born calf away from her mother. Fortunately, Jessica happened to end up on the property of Tonie and Shirley Joubert who, realising she was only a few hours old, took her in and created a milk formula to help her regain strength. From then, Jessica was a part of the family and even became friends with the couples’ dogs. As she wouldn’t survive on her own in the wild, she stayed with her ‘parents’ Tonie and Shirley.

Echo Caves

The Echo Caves in Limpopo, South Africa, are set in Precambrian dolomite rock, which was first laid down about 3800 million years ago, when Africa was still part of Gondwana. The caves are considered some of the oldest in the world. There are a number of speleothem structures in the cave; two of these are hollow stalactites which when hammered create echoes audible throughout and even outside the caves, thus the name of the caves. The caves are over 40 km long; regular tours are available for about 2 km of the tunnels and chambers.
