Climate and Landscape
We had our first rain in February with a total of 14 mm falling; the Huab River came down past the De Riet village for the first time since 2015. Otherwise, we had warm days and cold nights with the south-westerly wind blowing until sunset.

Our guests have loved the rains and only once did a storm catch us out on a boma dinner.

Wildlife
We had some great elephant sightings this month, including in the mountains where the guides found them in the afternoons. The lions were spotted several times which the guests were extremely happy about too. Our guides also found plenty of kudu, oryx and giraffe, while every now and then a rhino was spotted. A few hyaena were also seen in our area.

Camp News
We are delighted to welcome Trendy Muyunda to our DMC team – she joins us as a trainee Assistant Manager. In addition, Warren Rhyn has started in the scullery department. Welcome to DMC, we hope you both enjoy your time with us.

Kisco has almost completed the refurbishment of our tents and the finished units are looking really great.

Guest Comments
“Our stay here was the highlight of our trip; it even compelled us to stay an extra night. Loved the welcome and the staff remembering our names; loved the singing of the staff and the click language for the menu and the effort made with the lanterns and candles placed all over the area.”

“Quality of the food. Family atmosphere. Informative managers.”

“Seeing elephants and rhino in the Huab River.”
