Climate and Landscape
The vivid green bush is fading now as the season changes. The game trails are a paradise for the chestnut-backed sparrow-larks and doves that enjoy the seeds that drop from the grasses.
The woodlands are still thick with signs of animal movement, though much of the game still concentrates on the open plains. The temperature has started to drop noticeably as we venture into our winter season and we recorded a temperature of 10° Celsius in the early mornings and late evenings.
May was a great month for wildlife at Linyanti Tented Camp.
Guests had fantastic experiences seeing many animals around Linyanti Tented Camp. You can definitely say it is a productive safari when guests are surprised by the amazing sightings just around camp!
The Linyanti Pack of wild dogs was seen a couple of times, making most of our guests’ dream of seeing an endangered species in its natural habitat come true.
Lions were also part of the fun when they were spotted on a kill. The pride comprises two females with cubs while two big males also were spotted around the western area of the camp.
Of course, our resident elephant never disappoint either, keeping our guests entertained with regular visits to Linyanti Tented Camp. The camp is also the ideal place for birders as we see good numbers of safari ‘specials’ such as lilac-breasted rollers and queleas.
It is always relaxing and to hear the soothing sounds of frogs and hippos emanating from the Linyanti River.
