Trip report Little Kwara and Lebala. part 1

Jump to last reply

Just back from 7 wonderful days in Botswana + a few days with friends in Jo`burg.
Little Kwara is now up and running and I was guest number 19. Mel and Grant whom some of you know from Kwara are the managers.
Mel has a wonderful sense of humour and is a people person who can asses the needs of the various guests and make sure they are happy. I had requested Doctor as a guide. I had never used him before but had met him on my two previos trips to Kwara. Doctor has a nice sense of humour and is a very good and hard working guide. Alberto (his brother is Russ whom some of you may remember from Lagoon and Kwara) was the tracker and a very good one.
The tents are nicer than the old style at Kwara. The are bigger, have higher ceilings and proper doors including sliding doors to the deck. Food is very good and plenty.
The views from camp are very nice overlooking the same lagoon as Kwara. Eventhough Kwra is very nearby you can neither see it or hear it.
There is still a lot of water around from the rains but the flood had not arrived yet.
The water did not impair the drives but it meant that there was still water in the pans in the mopane areas so the general game was not as good as normal. The Wild dogs had been spotted just before I arrived ( as well as Leopard and 3 Cheetah brothers).
The Wild dogs had denned early so the puppies were now old enough to run around with the parents and were most likely spending there time in the Mopane woods where there are plenty of Impala.
Plenty of Lions around and we saw them playing, drinking and swimming. To see Lions swimming was a first for me and very interesting. I also saw Lion in camp during a toilet visit during the night.
Sable was seen in camp and on drives but unfortunately not by my group. We also arrived 15 minutes to see Lions killing a warthog.
Birding was very good with a lot of the Okavango specials.
Michael
