We’ve had some good solid rain at last, and parts of the reserve are lush and jungle-like! The foam-nest frogs having been whipping up their frothy nests, and there is much activity with births, birds and butterflies. The lodge is closed and the renovations are coming along very well – and all on track. This break has given the guides the opportunity to do specialist courses and training, and they are currently visiting the Singita Grumeti property in Tanzania. This is a fantastic opportunity to see another safari area and operation, as well as impart their skills to, and learn from, others. Without guests or guides about there haven’t been any game drives taking place – but of course the wildlife is not on leave!
