3 Bushtails from Botswana
Specialist Guide, Brooks Kamanakao, has just returned from a successful private safari with Africa Adventure Co clients. From the sounds of it, the game viewing in Botswana is better than ever!
“Our adventure began at the world famous MOMBO CAMP. We had an awesome time here and we saw great game including 1 white rhino sleeping, 4 lions and a male leopard who we spotted up a tree and he proceeded to come down and started marking his territory. The highlight was viewing “Pula”, a gorgeous female leopard and her 5 month old cub. Pula became famous in nature documentaries that chronicled her life.
We continued to GOMOTI CAMP, located in the Okavango Delta. Game viewing was special and included 3 lioness walking away from a smelly dead giraffe. That evening we were about to have dinner when we heard a stampede from zebras and the same 3 lionesses killed a zebra foal. Two dominant male lions showed up and took over the small meal which was left.
We had the opportunity to meet Nic Proust from Wilderness Safaris Environmental department. Nic has a web page called “Bush24” which the clients regularly follow. Nick definitely added a value for our 3 nights at Gomoti Camp.
The staff made our stay very special including sundowners and a private bush dinner about 15 minutes drive away from the camp. It was MAGIC! The guests loved Gomoti so much that a few tears were shed when saying goodbye to the team.
Our last camp was CHITABE CAMP and the game viewing was epic! The wildlife sightings included 1 leopard with 3 months old cubs, 2 lionesses with 5 small cubs, 1 cheetah, and we visited the hyena den we saw 2 adults hyena and 4 cubs. We enjoyed a Bush brunch and Boma dinner,,,. We had another great time here.”
