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.
