We had an incredible month at Selinda Camp. Although it is supposed to be the rainy season we experienced very little with only half an hour of a downpour every two or three days. The thunder and lightning was spectacular to watch.
On one morning drive we were following four lions who were looking into the bush with serious intent when all of a sudden a Leopard exploded into action and climbed a tree before the Wapuku pride could catch it. The Lions were startled for a second but then caught the attention of a Warthog and managed to catch and kill it. Within an hour they were saturated of went to sleep it all off.
In Camp we have the resident Elephant which has become very comfortable around the guests and staff and is often seen grazing between the rooms. He is very relaxed and has provided great entertainment for the guests. We though he was a nuisance as we had just replaced the lampshades on the main deck and beleived his curiosity and rough trunk turned them into shreds. But it was not to be as we discoverred one day at high tea when a Tree Squirrel climbed up the lamp and carefully, one by one, tore off the threads and then ran across the deck to the other side of the swimming pool to continue building its nest.
