The Problem with Poachers

Following our announcement last week of another re-stocking the lakes were almost immediately targeted by poachers. Fortunately they did not succeed and were apprehended. We have now taken further measures to broaden the security at the lakes to prevent this happening in the future.

Due to their actions we will no longer be making public any future re-stocking. The lakes will continue to be re-stocked on a regular basis and if anyone wishes to get updates could they please contact the lodge direct – information will only be given out to those who can identify themselves.

This is a situation we have been forced into and apologise in advance for any inconvenience it may cause. We ask for your understanding regarding this matter.
