Climate and Landscape
The beginning of October was extremely hot but towards the end of the month we had a few showers on the concession. Everyone was excited as we have been waiting for the rains for a while. The minimum temperature was 10° Celsius and the maximum 40° C.
Overall it was a great month at Seba with abundant sightings and general game.
The wild dogs were around and provided our guests with great sightings. They were spotted close to the camp looking very relaxed; they were also spotted hunting impala (including feeding on a pregnant impala kill), bushbuck and warthog.
We saw a leopard with her two cubs throughout the month, hunting and once feeding on a bushbuck under a guide’s house. A female leopard cub was spotted on her own on the floodplain.
A large but shy male leopard was also seen around the concession.
We were extremely lucky with sightings of the two female lions and their three cubs; one highlight was watching them feeding on a baby warthog.
The hyaena with cubs at the den continued to be a highlight for our guests too.
Two trainers from the Maun Training Department, Abbie Kula (Lobster Ink and mentorship) and Tswelelo Morekisi (service and hospitality), came to train our new staff members in camp. While they were here we did a number of Lobster practicals and awarded certificates to staff who had completed their courses.
“The whole Seba family was amazing. King Julian (Big O) we will always remember his laughs. We will remember our Seba/Abu family forever! Thank you so much for the memories! Love Elke & Nina.”
“Absolutely loved staying at Seba. Everyone was so welcoming, saw the best sightings we have yet seen (lions on a kill with BT) amazing. We were very spoilt here J!”
