20 June 2015 to 22 June 2015
We spend the next three days at an unfenced wilderness camp – Gharagab. The last time we were there Earlybird was sick and confined to bed for the duration of our visit. On that occasion we had a variety of buck, lions, brown hyena and jackals visit daily. So I am looking forward to a similar experience this time. That is the mistake one makes in the bush – it is never the same from one visit to the next and this visit will prove.
Gharagab is a 160 km drive from Nossob, the last stretch being a 4×4 track so the trip takes several hours.
Here are some pictures of what we see on the way.
We arrive have Cabin 3 and 4. Both have lovely views of the waterhole.
We also have some close neighbours
Red-headed finches are regular visitors
The sunsets are stunning.
And the braai master produced magnificent meals
The sociable weavers are not garden birds so the fact that they have become so tame is intriguing. I have never seen them as confiding as they are here at. Clearly they have worked out that titbits are easy to come by.
We have many feathered visitors
