Things have been heating up as we enter what’s expected to be the hottest month of summer – as a result the reptiles have been quite active and some young Nile Monitor lizards can be spotted basking in vegetation on the sunny banks. Crocodile nesting season is in full swing and within the next few weeks the first hatchlings should start emerging; no doubt there will be a few very protective mothers around… And still on the subject of our scaly friends – a few guests were lucky enough to spot a 2m Forest Cobra crossing the road very close to our kayak lockers! The breeding-pair of White-backed Night-heron seems to be doing well and sightings on and around the nest are at the order of the day.
