Mw Blog March 2017

Written by Donna Duggan
For most of February, the migration herds were spread to areas not normally expected—the eastern plains of the Serengeti, the western Sabora Plain of the Grumeti Reserves and then all over central Serengeti, near Moru. On a quiet morning exploring near the kopjes, some of our clients watched in anticipation as a lion expertly stalked and took down a wandering wildebeest, right in from of their vehicle. This may have woken the herds up because by late February and into early March huge masses rushed to the southern plains of Ndutu as the summer storms took full force and dumped rain all over. The streams were full of fresh water and the grasses were shooting, this was what they were waiting for! A photographer’s dream

We were grateful to be able to spend some time in Singita’s Grumeti Reserve in late February—and wow, what a place! With a couple of night’s at Sasakwa Lodge and one night at Faru Faru Lodge, we felt thoroughly spoilt and in awe of our surroundings. From a room with a view across the plains, to watching the swirling river waters rise on the Grumeti, a night game drive and spotting this female leopard with her sole cub. The two were so relaxed, playful, returning for a snack on their kill in a tree nearby and literally posing for photos. What a way to spend a morning! Thank you to the team up there, it’s magical!

It was time for our Guide of The Year, Muba Mkwepo, to accept his award. Nas took him for a week to Zimbabwe; Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. They enjoyed high tea with old world charm at the Victoria Falls Hotel, a lunch and inspection at Elephant Camp and then to Hwange National Park. Somalisa Camp was there destination, and their guide was long time friend and collague, Lewis Mangaba. Others at the airstrip were amazed at the romantic run across the runway into each others arms! They enjoyed game driving, walking safaris and a sit by the waterhole as the elephants wandered by for a drink to quench their thirst. Thank you African Bush Camps, we will be back!

We can’t say much more than the alluring smell of freshly sawn hard wood, the magic of a deep soothing bath overlooking the plains below. Nas is working on the next addition to the Nasikia Portfolio, and we know that you will be blown away! Just think, after a full day of game driving, slip into the fluffy robes, run yourself a wonderfully warm bath filled with scented crystals and immerse yourself. The stage is before you; below wanders the magnificent wildlife of Africa, the landscapes of ancient proportions and the sunsets on another day of safari. You get my drift?
