Back in camp!

Hi All, Apologies for the radio silence this side, I was dutifully uploading guide blogs when I was blindsided by a rather unpleasant medical situation. One minute I was happily perched on the banks of the Luangwa River and the next being airlifted out and deposited in a Joburg hospital.

We’re back!

Hi there, We're back, after a bit of an absence. The guides have been dutifully handing in their posts, but Derek and I have been knee deep preparing our tender bid for Mwamba Bush Camp. Whilst all operators were initially offered their tenders back for the next 10 year period, there [...]

Wild Dogs at Mwamba Bush Camp

Meyam Njobvu, 10 June 2010: On an afternoond drive out of Mwamba we saw a lovely group of elephant feeding in the Mopane woodland - they had lovely light on them. We continued on whilst looking for a nice sundowner spot and I noticed the impalas were running and pronking nervously which [...]
