More rain at Ndutu, a wonderful place to be right now

28 Apr 2015 by Ndutu Safari Lodge

Good Morning Carel

Over 20mm rain yesterday taking this months total to over 200!

Last April was 69mm and the year before 166mm. There was a massive storm out over Lemuta and Nasera with extensive flooding.  It's a hot sunny morning now, the grass will be growing and just maybe the wildebeest will stay around a bit longer! 

Two days ago there were long lines heading for Silkum Valley and Kusini and Hidden Valley teeming with wildies. Now with yesterdays rain I already have reports that they have turned again and heading back to the Ndutu plains and to Lemuta. For several days the lodge has been surrounded and lions brought down a wildebeest at 3am, 20 metres in front of room 17. Photos attached is of Hidden Valley and the lion kill.
