On a recent trip we managed to see the wild dog den 10 minutes away from camp, with eight puppies, and witnessed and the adult dogs kill an impala in the camp at sunset. We also followed the resident leopard and her year old cub hunting near the camp, for most of the morning drive. Elephant and buffalo a daily occurrence and the lions made their appearance on the last morning, although we heard them every night vocalising in the distance.
The water in the Khwai River, which runs past camp, is in full flow and attracts large herds of game. A drive down the Khwai River never fails to impress and is a photographer’s paradise. Open bill Storks wade through the shallows while Pied Kingfishers hover above. Hippo frolic in the deeper pools and the air is filled with their laugh like snorts.
But more on that next time. The tents are looking stunning, as is the open plan lounge and dining area.
