We are very pleased to have just released 20 tortoises from the SPCA Wildlife Rescue Team at Bastiaanskloof in and around our Kraal Cottage at India House. The tortoises are survivors from fires, road accidents and rescued from homes around the Cape Peninsula.
During the fire on the estate in 2012, many of our tortoises where unfortunately destroyed and we hope this release in some small part contributes to the re-population of tortoises on the estate.
Watch this space for further releases in the upcoming year.
