We visited Tsendze camp for the first time on the weekend of 2 to 4 March. Much has been said about the camp on the forum. In my opinion, a camp that will definitely see me again. It has its own atmosphere. The nearest to this atmosphere I would guess would be Tamboti tented camp, bush lodges and bushveld camps excluded. We were slightly disappointed in our neighbours, being far too noisy for Tsendze visitors. Nothing any body could do.
We didn’t see a great deal of game. Our early morning drive took two hours before we saw an antelope! (Impies) But that didn’t take away the beauty of the park, nor the birdlife.
We had visitors at night in the form of 2 big ellies and a small herd of buffs. And then, while we were sitting around, in the moonlight, I heard and saw the grass move. Initially I thought it was the mice in the tree, but later I saw a snake, not two metres away from where we were. A huge one! A black one! Length? Undisclosed, because I never saw the head, but what I saw was enough for me to retreat back and let it go its own way. It might have been longer than 2 meters.
There was an eclipse of the moon, and it was wonderful to see it in total darkness, if you could get out of bed in time. I almost missed it, but got this pic.
We saw this nest (?) on a branch,
And this ant in close proximity.
Does any body know what it is?
