Hope you're all doing well.
I'm flying back to Hwange on the 2nd of July, for 5 full months in the bush. It will be the dry season, and it promesses to be very dry this year. This means a lot of natural mortality of ele calves and other herbivores has to be expected. Which again means that hyaenas will feast on carcass with a white Landy watching over them, can't wait!!!
I will have to leave the 3 kitties in France, only to find bigger one in Zim.

I'm back in Europe for a short month. Trips to Sevila & Lyon scheduled. Well, I say short, but it will seem very long to me, one month away from the bush... good thing is, at least, here it's warm, or it's supposed to be!! It was litterally freezing in Hwange when I left...

We are now back from South Africa and I'm ready to resume my field work. We were at the annual Savanna Science Network meeting in Kruger National Park. There, tourism is an industry. It was weird to see so many cars in the park. Vegetattion there is as bushy as in Hwange! During the few game drives we had, we didn't see a lot, just a few hyaenas (yeah!!) and a huge white rhino! Sorry, no picture available...
Fortunately, I managed to see 6 lions after the party!
