Climate and Landscape
The weather at Mvuu Camp has been generally cool in the mornings and evenings. With the exception of a few evergreen trees such as the red mustards, most of the trees are losing their leaves and it is becoming easier to spot the wildlife.
Wildlife sightings in and around Liwonde National Park and at Mvuu Camp have been predominantly elephant at the waterholes. The smaller predators are common now since the grass is low at this time of the year and we have been delighted to see serval, civets and white-tailed mongoose. Side-striped jackal and spotted hyaena were also seen, while bushbabies were spotted in a mopane tree.
Birds and Birding
African skimmer, Pel’s fishing-owl, lappet-faced vulture, white-backed night heron, spotted eagle-owl and scops owl and have been seen regularly. Fifteen marabou storks made for a great sighting on the river bank.
