R&L

Signs.  Nothing new, I just liked the picture.

R&L-27

The skimmers that are back…  and started nesting!  That means everyone is now going to be subjected to 100s and 1000s of skimmer pictures.

R&L-26

While “spraying and praying” the skimmers from the hide I noticed that repeat guests Paul and Cathy were with JohnD in absolutely spectacular light.  P&C – thanks so much for coming back and for being such great, appreciative and friendly people.  Twalumba!

R&L-25

Early morning on the spinal road.  Weird road pictures again….

R&L-24

The morning after – an area that burned (far too late in the season) had a strange beauty the next morning when we were up at 05:00 to look for further hot spots and embers to extinguish.

And then an afternoon by the pools.

An evening on the pools loop.  Living up to expectations.  When we explored this area on foot I cam face to face (and rather close) to a large male buffalo, so I always think of buffalo when driving the area.

A very, very productive boat cruise!

R&L-7

New roofs on most of the chalets!  7,000 bundles of grass, two months work for 5 thatchers from the village.

R&L-6

All the older chalets (so four of them) now have proper doors now.

R&L-5 R&L-4

I am not a huge fan of night drives, but this was a good ‘un.

R&L-3

Young leopard.  On the way from the airfield to the lodge.  Middle of the day!  Captured by Nyambanza.  Kaingu intern and all round headache reducer.  Why does she reduce headaches?  Well, she makes things happen in a quiet and efficient way.

Nyambanza. Thoughtful safari style.

Lynda went canoeing twice.  Including the rapids!

One in a thousand.  Literally.  It is seriously addictive.
