Weather and Landscape
Summer is in full swing as we have been experiencing some really hot conditions. Maximum daily temperatures range from 38-41° C, dropping down to around 28° C at night.
In terms of rain, we received a very small amount of precipitation, and hopefully we will receive more in the coming months.
Due to the small amounts of rain, new vegetation has started to sprout up in the concession. This has attracted good numbers of wildlife to the area with a noticeable increase in red hartebeest, ostrich, oryx, springbok and kudu. Many of these animals have calves and chicks, which are growing rapidly.
Desert-adapted elephants are still seen in the area, but we suspect that they will start their annual trek north towards the Grootberg area.
One of the highlights for the month was seeing eight lions which really wowed our guests.
"We loved tracking the elephants and visiting the living museum. Being able to sleep under the stars was magical as was the bush dinner, which was a complete surprise for us. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for the wonderful memories."
"Seeing eight lions in the desert was incredible!"
