Springbok Casino Showcases Winter Survival Strategies of South Africa’s Wildlife in ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’ Feature



Springbok Casino Showcases Winter Survival Strategies of South Africa’s Wildlife in ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’ Feature
Reading Time: < 1 minute


This July, Springbok Casino invites all players to celebrate ‘Mzansi’s Winter Wonders’, a tribute to South Africa’s incredible wildlife and their unique adaptations to the winter season. From gentle elephants to resilient rhinos, these stories highlight the incredible behaviors and survival strategies of ten animals during the colder months.

Lion dads are the epitome of relaxation, often sleeping up to 20 hours a day. However, when danger threatens their pride, these seemingly lazy kings become fierce protectors. During the colder months, they rely on strong family bonds within the pride, while lionesses take advantage of the longer winter nights to stalk their prey more effectively.

With the vegetation thinning out, Elephants rely on their excellent memory and social knowledge to locate resources.

African Penguins are resilient birds who rely on their dense feathers to keep warm as they swim in the chilly waters hunting for fish.

Relying on their strong sense of smell, Rhinos spend the winter months locating the last remnants of edible plants and can often be seen visiting waterholes more frequently, ensuring they stay hydrated.

With less foliage, spotting prey becomes easier, and Eagles take full advantage with their keen eyesight. Eagle pairs use the winter to strengthen their bonds and are often seen soaring together and performing aerial displays.

Meerkats will dig deeper and more complex burrows to avoid the chill. Their intricate tunnel systems provide warmth and safety, allowing them to huddle together during cold nights.

The feature also highlights how Black-backed Jackals, kudus, Vervet Monkeys, and Baboons alter their foraging patterns and habits during the winter months.

To honour South Africa’s resilient wildlife, for the month of July, Springbok Casino is offering players 25 free spins on its new Cosmic Crusade slot.
