One of Aitch’s list of “things to do” was visit her twin sis in Botswana. Janet quickly mustered her network and arranged a trip to Hwange, Zimababwe’s world-class national park. Her friends Beks and Sarah Ndlovu of African Bush Camps own a concession and run a very special camp there in the Somalisa area!
They call it a Hemingway-style camp. We called it bliss.
The weather was amazing! Bright sunshine, then gathering clouds, to pouring rain and back to sunshine in a few hours. Enough to bring out the bullfrogs – the first time I have seen them, not for lack of looking. They were out for their annual month of ribaldry: Bawdy songs, lewd & lascivious behaviour, also gluttony. Then back underground for 11 months of regrets.
The rain was spectacular!
After the rain, the spoor: Aha! The lions have cubs!
and there was sunshine . . .
