What a hot month it has been at Ongava Tented Camp this month. Once the sun set, we did receive a little comfort as a cool wind blew in from the west on most days, and on occasion there was a little chill at the beginning of the morning activity.
As we continue on with the dry conditions, the camp waterhole continues to attract good numbers of wildlife. It was not uncommon to see up to five different species congregating around the waterhole - in fact, this was often the scene during the heat of the day. We have noticed an influx in eland numbers at the waterhole this month, and not to mention very regular visits from the resident pride of lion.
Sightings a little further away from camp have been excellent as well, with many guests returning to camp very happy after their game drive.
This month, camp staff put in a lot of extra effort to make our guests' stay more special by setting up delicious meals in scenic spots, often beautifully lit up by subtle candlelight.
Game drives into Etosha have also been really productive and popular with our guests, as this often allowed sightings of elephant, which are currently concentrated in the central areas of Etosha and will only move north once the rains arrive.
