Ranger Diaries January 2012

Firstly, Happy New Year to all of you, we hope you had a great holiday season.

As we start of this year, the big rains have gifted us with some sorely needed moisture. Compared to last year’s average of around two meters we have had a very dry summer so far. 

The Reserve is looking glorious and the sightings are at their best. Talk of the town on Nambiti is the new Lion cubs! The four of them have been seen in and out of the rocks at the favoured drinks stop… the Sundays River Waterfall. An even popular spot now I am sure. Slowly the visuals have gotten better with the cubs having moved and been spotted recently in the centre of the road, but still in the north of the reserve. Great to hear that they are on the move now and becoming more active out in the open. They are truly too cute!

Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Hippo, Cheetah and even Spotted Hyena have graced our roads for some of the better viewings to date this year.
Nambiti truly is the place where your dreams of Africa in its majesty can reconnect in reality.
So long … I look forward to meeting you on the plains of Nambiti …
