At 10 we have Foster finding Secretary Birds roosting up a tree (pictured). Unusual sighting seeing these ground dwelling, snake hunting birds pose like this
No.9 this week is Dix tracking and finding an adult female leopard on the Selinda Camp side of the Spillway. Not five minutes from camp
No.8 Kane’s bushman skills links up with his cousin Dix to jump into a Selinda boat (Kane is at Zarafa) and motor to Selinda, pick up a Selinda Koloi (game driver) to show his guests this same leopard
No.7 Day of the Leopard! That night Kane picks up the tracks of Amber the Leopard 15 minutes from Zarafa and calls Reuben off the big boat so all could enjoy the sun downer sighting
No.6 Cheetah found on the route to the airstrip by using a Giraffe as a locater! See the post earlier this week here on Dispatches
No. 5 The roaming Roan (pictured) seen near the airstrip all week. Becoming our signature antelope, one of the rarest.
No.4 Selinda’s Percy the Porcupine displays his quills for all guests to see just before bed time. Seen nearly every night in and around camp
No.3 The Kamp family spending and hour by a water hole and being rewarded by Giraffe coming to drink and also lick the salt on the ground. They need the minerals. They are shy and nervous when they drink so what a sighting. (pictured)
No.2 The Selinda Spillway Elie “water”block. Elephants everywhere along the spillway
And topping the charts this week with a unanimous ten out of ten is…….
1. Kane finds a Pangolin next to Zarafa. Incredible sighting. Some people go years without seeing one. What was more was that the Selinda Lion Pride were trying to eat it! See the full posting on Dispatches next week – more to come later as the Lions then went off hunting a Kudu. Well done Kane.
