The waiting game

A travel blog entry by alexobt


The first port of call is the supermarket - supplies are needed for Mana as it's on the Zambezi river with no villages for miles around. I'm not sure if I'll be able to cook food there, so I go for a mix of stuff - smoked sausages, onion, steak rice, chicken, carrots, tinned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, biltong, the biggest sack of ginger biscuits I've ever seen, and naturally peanut butter and bread. My luxury is ...

Last Day in the Wild

A travel blog entry by jcastellan


This morning we all went for a game drive. The first interesting sighting that we had was a pair of male impalas that were play fighting by hitting each other with their horns. They briefly stopped to look at us and then continued fighting. A little while later we got out of the car to go for a short walk around a little water pan that was full of water plants. I was a bit concerned that there could be hippos hiding in the water among the plants, so I frequently scanned the water ...

When an Elephant Came in Camp

A travel blog entry by jcastellan


This morning we were woken up to the sound of many noisy hippos grunting. Paul, John and Francois left the campsite at 7am for a walk. After my last walking experience with them, there was no way that I was going to go through that again. Instead I went for a short 2 hour game drive.

A travel blog entry by jcastellan

We got back to our camp at Nyamepi at 10am. It was now time for breakfast, then packing up and having a shower.

Soon after we were ready to say goodbye to ...

A Relaxing Day

A travel blog entry by jcastellan


This morning at 7am John and I went for a game drive while Paul and Francois went fishing at Mana Mouth. As we all prepared to leave the campsite we were visited by the monkeys who were looking for food, but didn't find anything. Today was going to be a beautiful sunny day. We started off by checking to see if Paul and Francois had caught anything. Our timing was perfect- Paul had just caught a Tiger ...
