A scorching time!

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.

Perfect conditions for kayaking!

The crocs are fighting for position in the sunshine on the sandbanks which are slowly surfacing after a break in the heavy rains that saw us into the New Year. This makes for some brilliant sightings and photographic opportunities. Hippo sightings have been good as they are still making full use of the extra space available and always keeping an eye on us to make sure we keep the distance as there is a couple of young calves with the pod.
On the birding front, we were visited by a pair of Pygmy Geese on 25/01, there are a few breeding pairs of Green-backed Heron and also a breeding pair of the elusive White-backed Night-heron!

Kayaking update

Hi everyone! Been having an awesome time out on the water recently, as we are still reaping the benefits of higher than average water levels. This means much more space for the hippos and crocodiles to move and also lots more hiding place for some of the smaller creatures such as baby Nile Monitor- some of which has been spotted recently- a 15cm. Lizard that might grow as long as 2m!
On the birding front, the weaver nesting
season is in full swing and the reeds
buzzing with hundreds of Yellow, Lesser masked and Thick-billed weavers. Recent top sightings include Lesser Jacana and Eurasian Oystercatcher .

Rising water levels

We have had some excellent rain over the last few weeks – it has been much needed as the area is suffering from several years of drought.

So while some holiday-makers are complaining about the rain, we are DELIGHTED with it!

The rising water levels have made some of the areas around the islands in the estuary accessible again by kayak, so it’s a great time to go out on a trip with us.

Adventure tour indeed!

Had an amazing experience on the water as first of all, 2 of our guests found themselves much closer to some crocodiles than they intended to be when they accidently touched one with the paddle and it had to make an instinctive hasty retreat accompanied by a big splash and a few faster heartbeats. Later on we were treated to a beautiful sighting of a hippo mother with her new born baby, 3 or 4 days old at most! Definately an afternoon to remember!
