Amazingly, almost another season has passed us by and there is only 4 weeks to go now till we close camp. We opened on 25 May and although it was fairly quiet for the first two months in terms of bookings, it has picked up hugely from August onwards so hopefully the global recession will be a thing of the past by next year.
Our bank protection work along the river bank adjacent to the main chitenge worked well this last rains, which turned out to be normal, but with most of the precipitation falling late in March/April. This meant there was a lot of water inland in the pans and pools which has been a nice change from other years when important lagoons dry up early.Consequently, we spread out our game-viewingby using more of the productive area around our bush camp – Mwamba . This has paid off in terms of some great game sightings all the way through the season.
