Wildlife - Sanctuary Chief's Camp

Botswana Chief's Camp - 3
 

As the predator capital of the world, the game viewing is awe-inspiring. But apart from its predators, the Moremi is also renowned for its large concentrations of plains-game, elephant and buffalo.

You will also no doubt see giraffe, impala and zebra. Endangered wild dog also make this area their home. Several lion prides as well as genet cats and hyena also live in abundance here. Like the rest of the Okavango Delta, the area is a paradise for bird lovers, with over 500 species.

Sightings - February 2014

Green season is known for turning the bush into a wildlife nursery. There are so many new-born mammals, from baby antelope to young lion cubs and leopards running around as they discover their surroundings.

Guests have had good sightings of the rare migratory birds which will start moving to warmer climates in a few weeks.  The days are still warm and sunny with occasional afternoon thundershowers - making for some of the best sunsets you've ever seen.

sightings - january 2014

The month started with guests being welcomed at the airstrip by three lionesses from our tree-climbing pride - at some stage they were even trying to hunt, but were unsuccessful. On a separate occasion male lions were spotted near our airstrip and they had four lionesses with them and a young male cub.

An interesting sighting was seeing two bull elephants play-fighting. They showed some unusual behaviour as one was flapping his trunk while the other put his head into the ground. Guests were also lucky to see a leopard trying to hunt vervet monkeys and another leopard with her cub feeding on an impala.
