October game sightings
“Very special camp in remote part of Southern Kafue National Park.” (Will, Oct 2016)
The month of October has been very warm but continued to deliver great wildlife sightings in addition to a myriad of special bird sightings. The ellies are in front of the lodge almost every day with the waterbuck and as the dambo gets lower, so they have stirred up a lot of silt turning our water into the ‘Nanzhila spa’ – the challenges of living with wildlife!
Lions show up on a regular basis but this sighting of a coalition of 3 males was very special and if they stick around, could well ‘shake’ things up with the resident prides. Guests were also recently surprised by a massive male leopard strolling through camp and the wild dog have been seen a few more times.
Of course the Nanzhila antelope are always fantastic and with roan and sable seen on nearly a daily basis, we sometimes take them for granted. We also had a beautiful sighting of eland recently and the bushbuck living in camp have provided us with some beautiful photo opportunities.
