The Last Waterhole Hide is Coming Alive!

With the water in the rivers and lagoons around Mwamba Bushcamp swiftly fading, the Last Waterhole is starting to come alive and the hide in camp is once again an amazing spot for the avid photographer.

The birds are amazing – with regular sightings of a resident juvenile Malachite Kingfisher, many White Fronted Bee-eaters, flocks of Lilian’s Lovebirds, Firefinches, Red-billed Quelea’s and even a Green-backed (striated) Heron.

The plains game is of abundance in the area and now we are getting regular visits of Elephants coming to cool themselves down.

The calls of Leopards and Lions are edging closer to the camp with each night and they have left us some teasers of tracks found close to the hide. Hopefully we will catch a glimpse of them soon while the sun is up.

Below is a selection of images taken while spending just over an hour in the hide.
