First Rains

Good morning everyone,
What a wonderful smell the first rains bring. After two Photographic Safaris in the Khwai/Savuti and the Kgalagadi we are back in Maun to get ready to do a bit of water-work on the Chobe River.
The Khwai delivered as usual. Lions, four leopard sightings in one day, sixteen wild dogs in our camp all rounded off by the amazing food of Capture Africa. Temperatures rising into the forties, were making all species head down to the water allowing for amazing photography.
The long haul down to the Kgalagadi was as usual also unbelievable. Lots of lions and birds of prey, as well as sad moments where a lion pride killed two cheetahs overnight. They were probably unexpectedly ambushed after drinking water at the KijKij waterhole.
The first rain was short but the smell was something indescribable.
Thanks to all our guests who made these trips unforgettable.

For anyone interested in the Kgalagadi Safari for next year, be quick, there are only two spaces left for 26 November – 02 December 2017.
