Description:

Yesterday we had the privilege of having Vicki from CapeNature and Brin, her tortoise sniffing dog, assisting us in seeing if there are any geometric tortoises on the property as Briers Louw is only a few kilometers away with similar habitat.

Unfortunately we couldn't find any geometric tortoises yesterday, but we did find nearly 40 tortoises in total, mostly padlopers.
