Climate and Landscape
June was a cold month for human beings, animals and birds alike. Temperatures were low in the mornings, becoming hot during the day and dropping again in the evening.
Our minimum temperature was 9° Celsius with 38° C the maximum. The grass and trees are slowly starting to change colour while the latter are losing their leaves. The water level is starting to drop but we still offer the beauty of the Delta to our guests during mokoro and boat outings.
A pride of five lions remained on our concession providing excellent sightings for the entire month of June. For a few days, two lionesses left the pride and moved on to the Jao Concession where they were seen mating with two lions that were passing through the area. On 9 June, they reunited once again just two kilometres from Seba.
Long-time resident Boxer and his cubs were also seen walking through the camp and neighbouring areas before disappearing into the inaccessible floodplain to the south-east. And on 10 June, the two collared lions were seen again, this time at the Abu Airstrip.
Our resident female leopard Bame and her cub also continued to offer weekly sightings, including on kills of impala and kudu. The impala was stolen by hyaenas not too long after the kill and Bame fought a sub-adult hyaena for the right to her kill, subsequently dragging it up into the safety of a nearby tree.
Seba Lagoon has provided abundant game and bird sightings.
“Service levels were super – the evening drinks, island picnic with the pizza oven/termite mound were very special. The camp staff were so very wonderful with our kids, they endeared themselves to all the adults! The chefs’ overall food quality was exceptional. The beauty of the area around Seba is truly inspiring. The up close and personal interaction with the game, especially the leopard with Speedy and Mate.”
“What can I say to convey what an amazing time I had? The service, beginning with Africa Dynamics and continuing through with Wilderness Safaris was exceptional. Please thank Sandra for suggesting Seba Camp. It was the perfect fit for me. The staff – from housekeeping to the kitchen crew, guide and managers – was welcoming, friendly and, best of all, fun! I have already recommended Africa Dynamics and Seba Camp to several friends. Thank you again for all your help with this trip.”
