September. The month when a switch gets thrown and we plunge into searing heat! As I write this we are (okay yes we are now in October!) seeing temperatures of 37 degrees. It does seem that the whole country is facing a bit of a heat wave. While out looking at yoga locations we came across these guys cooling off:
The elephant action on the river just never ever gets old.
We then hosted our 9th (I think) yoga retreat. And it was a stormer.
We also had lots and lots of camp elephant activity. This very early morning visitor made us all a bit nervous by being up close to our satellite dish. We really have bad enough internet without the help of elephants!
The wildlife highlight in our immediate vicinity though had to be a young leopard that we found sunning itself on Mantobo island – which is a large island near the lodge.
And then we received a pleasant surprise when family from Germany announced they had booked flights. So we had the pleasure of Julia’s mum and brother for a couple of weeks. Its great to see Europeans starting to travel again. We are by no means busy with international guests, but the numbers are steadily increasing. Fingers crossed for next season.
Oh and a quick obligatory shot of this month’s full moon. The harvest moon. So called becaue it used to help illuminate northern hemisphere farmers bring in the crops late into the night.
And then a few random snaps from the month.
