Fauna & Flora

The Mooiplaas Ranger Section area that Tsendze falls in is known for its very large buffalo herds and many elephant bulls.

The area has been and still is, home to large tuskers and some of the more well known ones, now unfortunately dead and gone, were 'Nshawu', 'Shilowa' and 'Mabarule'. A current tusker with rather impressive ivory is 'Alexander' who is often encountered on the main tarred route between TRC and Mopani Camp.

With its abundance of huge trees in the campsite TRC offers great birding opportunities right in camp and the surrounding area offers an interesting list of birds previously recorded.
