Climate and Landscape
The weather was hot at Desert Rhino Camp during May, with warm nights that only started to cool down towards the end of the month. The temperature rose to 48° Celsius during the day with nights as warm as 25° and typically windy evenings.
Highlights at Desert Rhino Camp this month were the exciting sightings of desert-adapted rhinos with their calves and a return visit of desert-adapted lionesses which made a kill at Salvadora Junction – inviting scavenging spotted hyaena and black-backed jackal to the scene.
Our youngest guest this month, who went by the name of Quinten, shared what he described as his best pictures, shot on his first safari with his parents.
We often saw Rüppell's korhaan around camp in the mornings, with their ‘froggy’ call confusing guests who don’t know this beautiful bird.
