What a relief! We have had three good rain events over the last 3 weeks, just today we had another one, so we are immensely grateful for any rain we are getting so late into the rainy season. If we get another one or two before the end of the rainy season (which officially ends in May), then we should be set for the dry season. The dry season lasts a long 4 months, from June – early October. These 4 months sound short, but they are tough on the game. Vegetation turns from a lush green to a dry brown/grey (for the most part), and so it is important that all water points are full up (which they are now). Nature is about survival of the fittest, and the dry season is the time of year when the animals’ yearly fitness test comes. The old & feeble won’t make it, and that is nature’s ways.
April, May and June are my personal favourite months, because the weather is usually just divine. Not too hot, lovely evenings, beautiful sunsets, and a beautiful look to the bush. For all our guests checking in over the coming weeks: Enjoy! It’s a truly lovely time of year.
