Climate and Landscape
The rains have almost gone for the season and we received only 52 mm in March. The Zambezi River continues to rise, creating breath-taking views of the Victoria Falls. The sheer power of the water going over into the deep chasm fills one with a profound sense of awe and appreciation for this natural wonder.

One of our major highlights this month was the news that the World Meteorological Organisation has named the clouds that are formed from the spray at waterfalls. So the cloud formed by the Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders) spray now has a name: Cataractagenitus no less! So you might forgive us for having our heads in the clouds at the moment!

While all this was happening on the eastern side, on the western side we were spoiled rotten by spectacular sunsets.

Guests on our Zambezi River boat cruises were thrilled to see elephants swimming across to the Zimbabwean side.

We also saw beautiful puku in the reserve during March.

We witnessed an interesting incident at the reception area when a crocodile killed a giant cane rat after a thrilling chase.

Our Environmental Commitment
We have more than 200 new seedlings ready for planting and donation to the schools around us.

We have also received new bedding for our worms in our worm farm.

Our Culture
Our staff members are always willing to share their culture with our guests – while guests really appreciate the fact that the staff join in the singing and dancing when we invite traditional groups to entertain them.

Food & Beverage Experiences
The Toka Leya pizza oven was very popular in March, not only with the young guests we had in camp but with the adults as well. We even had some of our guests try their hand at making pizza with our chefs.  

Staff News
Mulonga Nambela was blessed with a baby girl this month.
