Due to the daily temeratures hitting around 40 degrees Celsius the area is totally dry and the animals have moved towards the River where more lush grazing can be had.
We were fortunate enough this month to have a rare sighting of one of the rare predators, the Cheetah. It occured on a morning drive and was spotted by Ignatius and Edward quietly relaxing under some shady trees. It appeared as she just had a hearty meal as her belly looked quite full.
We also had a surprise visit from a male Baboon in camp which is very rare as he certainly was well out of his natural habitat which is around the Huab River. It appeared that he was very thirsty as we found him next to the pool but when he saw us he made a dash for it up the rocks and then sitting down under some Mopane Trees starred at us as if to say “Why did you disturb my drink?”
The resident Geckos in camp have kept us thorouly entertained with their hunting of the insects that are attracted by the camp lights. They have kept the huests entertained with their barking sounds as the sun goes down.
