What a glorious past week we have had at Jongomero!  We have had a number of wonderful elephant and lion sightings not far from camp. Just yesterday a herd of ellies were observed a mere 100m from camp. As I always say this is the animals' home and we are only renting it from them - so they are free to roam where they wish and we have to respect and enjoy the sightings they afford us.

Last week, our guests Ian & Ruth Frost were lucky and amazed to see a lioness in the Jongomero river bed which had come down to drink. While packing their bags and getting ready for their departure, Ian took a look out from his balcony and saw the lioness and quickly called Ruth from inside the tent to come and see. They observed her walking along the rivers edge and up the river bank into the bush. A great farewell from the Ruaha.

As we drove them to the airstrip and we were saying our goodbyes, Ruth said to me "I have always dreamt of coming to Africa since being a little girl - this has been more, far much more than a dream come true - thank you"

This photo was taken in the Jongomero riverbed in front of their tent 20 minutes after the lioness had walked away and we were looking at her tracks.

Wonderful green season days..
