The past week has brought some great opportunities and sightings in the field. The last couple of days have been fairly chilly with slight rain. Having said that there has been huge excitement not only from the guides and guests but for the animals too. The clearings are scattered with new born impalas and the trees full of migrant birds chirping away and one or two of the first born wildebeest calves (very early for the season).
Although there has been rain it has also brought a lot of activity from the animals especially predators.
I hope you all enjoy this Week in Pictures…
