(For those receiving the Lani posts via email, remember the photos are in much better resolution on the website)
As promised in our last post this post will have a bit more about our guide G and lots of wildlife pictures.
Before we get to that though allow me to post a few photos and thoughts about Senyati.
It is a campsite about 10km from Kasane and each camping stand has its own private ablution block. It is not the most modern with the latest Italian taps and showerheads , but then that is not the reason we were here.
We had an awesome spot at campsite number 1 in the shade and closest to their famous little waterhole.
Out of that kitchen side of our trailer many delicious meals emerge and this specific morning Charmain made us some nummy flapjacks.
Carli(our eldest) pre-mixed some ingredients for us and Charmain did the rest. (Note the suprise little letter Carli added to the ingredients. Sure it made it taste better).
Some pics of the reception/shop and deck area at the waterhole.
The evening before our second boat trip with G we were once again entertained in the camp by quite a big herd of Baufallo.
I was looking to go on one of the photographic boats that is operating around Kasane. It did not seem as though I am going to have joy and we decided to give G a shot at playing photographic guide for our shoot.
He was amazing.
He knew from which side to approach the wildlife. He knew how long to stay at a specific spot. He manouvred the boat into spots I did not think he will be able to get out again.
He also knew the animals and birds very well as well as their behavior.
I could not have asked for a better guide at all.
I ended up shooting over a thousand photos during the time with him and to work through and pick the best ones is a mammoth task I still haven’t completed.
I am going to split this days post into a few and bore you all to death with many shots. 🙂
Ok thats all for now.
Tomorrow we are leaving for our last part of the trip where we dont have any power or communication.
I will try and make one more post tonight since the posts now lag about 8 days behind.
