Singita Grumeti

Grumeti | November 2011

Dry river beds, dried out drainage lines, dust bowls instead of water holes; these are things of the past. All of the rivers and drainage lines are flowing in full spate and the water holes are filled to capacity.  The influx of water from the rains has breached the wall of Sasakwa dam. Some days it looks as if SingitaSasakwa Lodge has been built overlooking a sea and when you get down on the plains and look through the grass there is water:  one of the most precious commodities on earth, and it is the lifeblood of man, animal and plant alike. During the dry season there are very few water points for animals and many plants restrict their growth to survive.  In the wet season most animals give birth and plants grow at an amazing rate. Soon it will be dry again but we appreciate the rains when they are here.  They hold a promise of excellent game viewing for the months ahead
