A Cold and Wet Winter Morning

When I got down to the lodge today the sunrise over Tswene Tswene was magnificent. We do not normally get clouds like this in winter, but it made for a great sight over the hills in the middle of Madikwe.

It started raining a few minutes later, which again is very strange for this time of year so our Game Drive was delayed just slightly. While we were waiting I took few images around the deck of Nkurru lodge.

After a few minutes the rain let up, at least for a little while. There were some pretty dramatic landscapes as we made out way through the Inselbergs. Things got VERY wet and VERY cold a little while later but we did get grat sightings of elephant,rhino and lions. The general game wa also out in full force which made our decision to brave the elements a pretty good one!

Very strange weather for this time of year but the drives are, as always, still amazing!

As always I look forward to hearing from you!
