November rains have arrived at last! What a joy to snuggle inside your bed listening to the gentle pitter-patter outside. This is a beautiful time of year with all the plants bursting into colourful life. Here are a few flowers blooming in and around camp at the moment.
We have had fantastic wildlife in front of camp the last couple of weeks with beautiful elephant herds only meters from Room 6 and Room 7.
From the lookout hide we have seen a buffalo herd who have been hanging around camp for a while now, eland, common and Grevy’s zebra, impala and beautiful reticulated giraffe. A walk down to our lookout hide before or after lunch is definitely a must at the moment.
One morning we were surprised to see three white rhino grazing on the bamboo grass in front of camp. After a few minutes they wondered off to join 6 more white rhino who were resting in the shade of the trees on the hill opposite camp. Nowhere else in the world could you see 9 white rhino peacefully resting together in the wild… a truly spectacular sight!
Bamboo grass, a favourite with rhinos, has been shooting up all around and so rhino sightings around camp have been excellent because the rhinos have moved in from the southern section of the conservancy. Here is just a small taste of what we have seen recently.
Hope to see you all soon.
