Photographer's Note

Before heading to the Domestic Departures of the airstrip (WS1) I would like to show a view of the camp (main posting). You can see the tent we occupied during our stay. It was 2x2 meters dome tent, fitted with mattresses, pillows, linen and towels. In front (opposite site of the one shown) we had a small balcony with two small folding chairs and a small table. It was the perfect place for a little rest and a drink in between walks.

On the foreground right hand side are the shared ablutions, with a laundry sink, two washing basins and mirror in the middle. On each side of the structure there is a toilet with an open roof to the sky and “extremely” comfy/relaxing if you are not that type of noisy person, in particular during the silence of the night in the savanna!!!

The interesting thing about this camp is the fact that it is totally open to the wild with no fence whatsoever around it. Any wild animal, being it elephant, lion or, by its proximity to the river, hippopotamus can enter and visit it at any time, day or night. Please read here about Attila Szill (atus) experience at this same camp. So, it means that nights could be as exciting as any day walk and/or mokoro trip!

In WS2, the typical and well supplied fire station located near the Domestic Departures. I could not sort out the usage of the buffalo skull!


PS: After Harry’s (abulafia) comment about the airstrip, ***this one seem to be a bit more primitive***, I decided to post in WS3 a wide view of the “runway”, including a “big” 6 seats Cessna landing there.
