There were reliable sightings of lions for the better part of month, the two collared males ensuring that our guests were never short of sightings of these beautiful cats. These emerging dominant males were seen during most of the month including a sighting of them feeding on a buffalo carcass whose demise we believe was caused by them too.
We were also blessed with many leopard sightings: the resident leopards were all spotted during the month while the most exciting sighting was that of a baby leopard – it is believed to be Bonno’s youngest. Even though the cub was very shy, on one sighting he was kind enough to wait for everyone on the vehicle to get their photo.
A family of five cheetah was also seen on the eastern side of Abu Camp – they are usually very rare but during December they were one of the more common sightings at Seba! They are successful hunters and were seen eating a reedbuck one morning.
All these beautiful sightings were to be expected as the whole concession is now dry and there is plenty of territory to cover when conducting game drives. Also, cats like cheetah prefer dry open spaces so it was not entirely surprising to see them in the still-dry seasonal floodplains.
Game walks and drives were our primary activities during the month due to the dryness of the area and this ensured that our guests had amazing safari experiences in the Okavango Delta.
We received very good feedback from our guests, even from repeat guests who want to come back – again!
The entire Seba team is committed to ensuring that our beautiful safari package is fully delivered to our guests!
