Climate and Landscape
May was a perfect month with the temperature dropping in the mornings and at night, keeping the mosquitos and other bugs at bay. Temperatures ranged from 10 – 34° Celsius.
The inundation has unquestionably arrived, raising the water level noticeably. With the water’s arrival temperatures dropped and now guests and animals equally seek the sun for warmth at midday.
This month we experienced hippo, big herds of elephant and buffalo as well as up to 12 giraffe, right at Seba Lagoon as guests were enjoying brunch.
Elephant herds by the dozen travelled through camp, as did buffalo herds.
Our pride of five lions was in the area for a while and was spotted at Seba West on a buffalo kill. Boxer (our male lion) was seen with his two cubs while our new leopard mother Bame and her cub were found close to camp.
More elusive were the wild dog, just two of which made a brief appearance at the beginning of the month.
Since the water level is high we have been offering loads of water activities as well as wows for our guests – including private surprise brunches and dinners on their tent decks with beautiful views of the lagoon.
“Your staff is truly amazing. Their passion to making you feel like family is outstanding.”
“Lions! Baby elephants and giraffe! Your staff are all superb! What a great experience. The staff could not have been better and Mate was a joy – smart, knowledgeable, funny. We met two Japanese guests, whose English was quite limited. The staff made a great effort to include them, explain to them, I was very impressed.”
“The food was superb. Chefs here at Seba are excellent. Tsono was excellent and the staff Precious, BK, Dinny, IT were all great!”
