Climate and Landscape
There has been a daily pilgrimage to the jetty at 5 o’clock in the morning to check the water levels here at Pelo, and we have been delighted to see the levels rise on a daily basis through the month – a fascinating natural marvel for both staff and guests.
We are unquestionably heading towards winter, with chilly morning temperatures and almost perfectly warm days. The sun is rising later and setting earlier, which makes the days that much more magnificent when bookended with two such spectacular phenomena.
The end of summer is always marked with some awe-inspiring cloud formations, and this month delivered nothing less than what we have become accustomed to. We had a few cloudbursts over camp, but our rainfall was very low; however, the skyscapes have left no one in any doubt that Pelo has the most amazing sunsets!
Many mornings this month started with a very unusual sound for Pelo – lions calling in the distance. In addition, we were alerted one morning to the signs of lions having been across our little island. At the same time we also found leopard tracks around camp.
Guests thoroughly enjoyed their mokoro trips and the higher water levels around camp have meant birding has been fantastic too.
